When should I come to UrgiKids?
From our specialized staff, to our welcoming setting, UrgiKids was designed for children, particularly those in emergency situations. But you can also come to UrgiKids for after-hour sick visits, minor trauma, wound care, lab work, x-rays, or anytime your pediatrician’s office is closed.
For wellness visits, physicals, school checkups and immunizations, UrgiKids recommends seeing your primary care physician.
