Pediatric Urgent Care Services

Accidents and illness occur at all hours, that’s why we are equipped to offer a wide range of on-site diagnostic services and emergency care Sunday through Saturday, when your regular pediatrician’s office is likely closed. All exam paperwork can be sent to your child’s pediatrician upon request, keeping them up-to-date on any pertinent labs and abreast of any on-going treatments.

Our services include:

Breathing treatments administered with a nebulizer are a common pediatric treatment for conditions such as asthma and other respiratory issues like wheezing and shortness of breath. During these breathing treatments, medicine is administered directly to the lungs in mist form.

Lung infections stem from inflammation or swelling near the lungs often caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria. Common lung infections include influenza (the flu), tuberculosis, bronchitis, and pneumonia.

If your child is ill, we may need to conduct labs or tests to determine what’s causing symptoms and how best to treat them. We offer in-house testing at NiteOwl Pediatrics, and will share those results with your regular pediatrician, ensuring the best possible treatment for your child.

Bad colds and cases of the flu can really take their toll on our kids. Our team at NiteOwl Pediatrics is versed in treating these illnesses, and ensuring the quickest recovery for your children.

Most parents know all about the ins and outs of ear, nose, and throat infections. They are just part of life, and our pediatric staff is more than equipped to treat these issues whenever they do arise. From sinusitis to sore throats to ear infections, we will get to the root of the problem and find the best treatment options for your child.

Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is an inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, or the transparent membrane that lines the eyelid and the white part of the eyeball. This condition can be viral or bacterial, and of course treatment will depend on which. If an antibiotic does not clear up the pink eye within 3 to 4 days, it can be presumed the issue is viral. Bacterial pink eye is highly contagious, and generally spreads from hand-to-eye contact.

Seasonal allergies can range from mild to severe, and can really affect quality of life for children and adults alike. Our pediatric staff can help treat symptoms of allergies, and help you find relief for your child from ragweed, pollen, and other allergens.

When our kids experience high fevers, it can be really troublesome. Our team can help determine the best way to treat fevers in children, and also how to ensure they’re as comfortable as possible as their bodies fight off illness. We will help get the fever down, and ease your worry as well as their discomfort.

Diarrhea and vomiting in children is most often caused by viruses. Sometimes accompanied by other symptoms like headache and fever, the signs point to a viral gastroenteritis infection. Sometimes bacteria can cause these symptoms, but either way, our doctors can provide treatment options to help your child feel better.

Splints are often used to stabilize simple fractures, sprains, tendon-injuries, or other soft-tissue injuries. Splinting will prevent movement that could inhibit proper healing. At NiteOwl Pediatrics, we are able to adequately assess and treat injuries that require splinting.

Few things are worse than seeing your child in pain. We can help with managing mild to moderate pain in children with appropriate medications.

It’s not uncommon for children to deal with skin rashes and irritation from time to time. Our pediatricians can help diagnose and treat these skin conditions in our office as they arise.
