Pediatric Urgent Care Clinic Remains Open to Serve Chattanooga Families During COVID-19
Amidst all the coronavirus pandemic mandates, business closings, and precautions implemented in the Chattanooga and surrounding areas, NiteOwl Pediatrics Chattanooga remains committed to serving you and your family. We want to assure our patients and their families that we are closely monitoring the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and remain open to care for your children, 18 and under, seven days a week. In a time when many have rightfully stayed away from emergency rooms at all cost, we know that minor injuries, accidents, and illnesses will still occur in many of your households. We want to remain a place where Chattanooga parents can feel safe to bring their children for our pediatric urgent care services. We provide after-hours urgent care for infants, children and young adults up to age 18. Although we do not take appointments, our walk-in clinic does allow you to save your spot in line by signing in on your phone or tablet, even before you’ve left your home. It is through this service we hope to decrease the stress associated with waiting rooms during this difficult time. View the current walk-in wait time or sign-in online by clicking here.
