Pediatric Urgent Care or Emergency Room—Where Should We Go?

NightLight · January 29, 2016

Your little one injured themselves at basketball practice. Or maybe they suddenly developed an unexplained rash or had an allergic reaction while playing outside. Either way, it’s evening and your pediatrician’s office has closed for the day. Now what?

That’s what we are here for. At NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care we are open when your pediatrician isn’t—nights and weekends. From stomach bugs to broken bones, our pediatricians can handle the bumps (literally) in your child’s health. With locations across the Houston Metro area in Webster, Pearland, Humble, Sugar Land and Cy-Fair, our walk-in pediatric clinics are close by.

Of course, you could take your child to the emergency room. It is always open, and life-threatening situations should still be handled there or with a call to 911. But in the case of injuries and illnesses it may take longer to be seen in an emergency room where patients are seen in order of severity. Emergency rooms also come with hefty price tags.

Our pediatric urgent care may save you money in these instances. Plus, because our physicians are strictly pediatric-focused, your children will be treated like children. Even better, you can skip the wait and avoid unnecessary waiting room time by reserving your place in line—simply visit our website from your always-handy mobile phone. You don’t need to leave your child’s side or bring them in until it’s time.

So, if your child is having a problem that can’t wait until your pediatrician’s office is open, but doesn’t necessarily warrant an emergency room visit, choose NightLight Pediatric Urgent Care instead for your after-hours pediatric needs. Remember to skip the line by reserving your spot from your mobile phone.
