Walk-Ins Q & A

What is a walk-in visit to the pediatrician? 

A walk-in visit to your child’s pediatrician is when you arrive at the office without having a scheduled appointment. Walk-in appointments are convenient for when you want your child to see a pediatrician, but you have:

  • A complicated schedule 

  • Unreliable transportation

  • Urgent concerns or can’t wait for another day

  • Need a work or school excuse

When you walk into one of the Kids & Teens Medical Group office locations without a scheduled appointment, the team connects you with the next available pediatric specialist. Kids & Teens Medical Group also offers urgent care appointments, telehealth services, and same-day sick visits, so that you have multiple options when you’d rather not put off a visit to a pediatrician. 

When are walk-ins appropriate? 

If you feel your child needs to see a pediatrician and scheduling an appointment is not an option, a walk-in appointment may be ideal for you. Walk-ins are appropriate when your child has a non-life-threatening injury or illness, such as:

  • Sore throat

  • Cold or flu symptoms

  • Asthma or allergy flare-up 

  • Sports injury

  • Minor cuts or burns

  • Pink eye

  • Ear pain 

If your child has severe breathing issues, bleeding, or loss of consciousness, the emergency room may be a better option. If you are unsure whether to go to the office without an appointment or take your child directly to the emergency room, call for guidance. 

When is a walk-in appointment not the best option?

When you choose a walk-in appointment, you may not have the option of selecting your pediatrician, and you may have a bit of a wait if the office is busy. 

If you are on a tight schedule or have another appointment close to the time you come into the office, you may ask for an estimate for when you might see a pediatrician or schedule a telehealth visit instead.

If you need to have a thorough discussion with a pediatrician or expect your concern to need more than a short visit, it may be best to schedule a telehealth visit or request an appointment online for a more convenient time. 

Walk-ins give you access to a pediatric expert without an appointment. Feel free to walk into a convenient location of Kids & Teens Medical Group today. You can also schedule ahead online or over the phone.
