Albuquerque Walk-In Pediatric Patient Care
High Desert Pediatrics will always make the time to see your child for acute injuries. An acute injury is defined as having a rapid onset over a short duration – in other words, the injury has occurred very recently and has not improved or has worsened.
Walk-in patients will be seen in between scheduled patients as time allows. During a walk-in appointment, our pediatricians will only address the acute injury at hand. Any chronic or recurring issues will need to be addressed during a scheduled visit.
