Pediatric Urgent Care
We understand that you would not trust your children to just anyone. When he/she is ill or injured, your protective instincts kick in. That is why the staff at QuestCare Urgent Care is dedicated to the care and support of your entire family. Our goal is to render the care your child needs as quickly and compassionately as possible.
When you treat as many children as we do, you know that their needs are not the same as those of our adult patients. Those of us working in pediatrics know, “Children are simply not just little adults!”
Children suffer from a variety of illnesses. Illnesses in adults can act differently in children because of the way they are structured, inside and out. Children are also constantly growing and developing so medical care must be customized to meet their needs.
Whether it is organized sports, riding a bike or just taking the family pet for a walk, lively children are prone to injuries like cuts and broken bones. Children are still going through growing stages, and it can take time to get used to a new size. Coordination and reaction times can be challenging for them. Our team works together to get you in, treated and back home in a hurry.
Insect Bites and Stings
Kids, by nature, love to explore. The great outdoors are one of the best places they can exercise their sense of adventure. It is also the home of thousands of little creatures that view your child as an afternoon snack.
For the most part, bug bites and stings are not a cause for concern. However, on occasion a bite or sting can be serious. Our physicians can prescribe the correct dosage of medications that help stop itching, swelling and ease the pain.
If your child is exhibiting anaphylactic symptoms such as:
- Loss of consciousness
- Severe shortness of breath
- Rapid, weak pulse
Call 911 right away!
