The UrgiKids philosophy is based on the belief that all children should have a medical home, meaning a strong relationship with their pediatrician or other primary care physician.
We consider ourselves an extension of those relationships, not a replacement, and as such encourage you to consider/visit UrgiKids for any of the following:
- a convenient alternative to the Emergency Department
- an after-hours option when your pediatrician’s office is closed
- services that are typically unavailable at the doctor’s office like X-rays, lab work, and procedures such as laceration repair or splinting
Because we work closely with pediatricians, you can expect prompt communication with your doctor just after your visit; your pediatrician will receive a copy of your child’s medical record, discharge instructions, and any relevant information such as test results or procedures that may have been carried out on-site.
We do not provide routine pediatric services such as physicals and immunizations because we believe those services should only be performed by your pediatrician.
