Urgent Med Housecalls offers mobile urgent care for children of all ages. Services are offered 7 days a week throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Rapid response is available upon a first-to-call basis. Appointments are not required. Our physicians are highly experienced practitioners of pediatric emergency and urgent care, so that your child’s care is in competent hands. Most of our providers are experienced parents as well.
Pediatric Problems that We Commonly Treat
Most requests for pediatric urgent care service that we receive involve sore throat, earache, cough, fever, vomiting and diarrhea, and more. If your child’s problem sounds potentially serious ill we will always refer to your nearest emergency room or pediatric emergency department when available. When we do evaluate and treat your child, with your permission, we will communicate with your primary pediatrician to help optimize followup care.
The Pediatric Urgent Care Housecall Advantage
Our services are requested by parents for a variety of reasons. Perhaps most commonly we are called by solo parents or child caregivers who have multiple children to supervise. Taking more than one child to the doctor’s office, clinic or emergency room, and then having to travel to a pharmacy is always a chore. Many parents prefer to avoid public waiting rooms because of the potential for exposure to other illnesses. Waiting hours for medical care with a small child in the public space setting is disruptive to the child’s natural eat/sleep rhythms. Intoxicated and/or behavior-challenged adults can pose a safety hazard for children and other persons in the public waiting rooms and other spaces of many emergency departments.
For serious or life threatening conditions, call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest hospital emergency department.
