When a child’s injured, it’s horrific for the parent. You want your child to be healthy and unharmed; a sprain, burn or cut goes directly against your goal as a parent. And trying to find a doctor who will handle those pediatric injuries is just one more layer of stress. High Desert Pediatrics has the doctors you need who can attend your child’s minor traumatic injuries with a minimum of fuss.
The Benefit of a Regular Pediatrician
Accidents happen at any time; they’re never scheduled and always inconvenient. They can even be frightening when your child is hurt or bleeding. So you don’t want to worry about gathering medical records or trying to explain your family history to a new doctor.
When you have a regular pediatrician, like the ones available at High Desert Pediatrics, you don’t have to explain anything except how the accident happened. Our attention to personalized care means our doctors and staff know your family, your child and the medical history they need to know for your child’s care. This means we can quickly and efficiently handle things like:
- Infected cuts
- Minor burns
- Sports injuries
Walk-In and Same-Day Appointments
Even knowing what doctor to go to for pediatric injuries doesn’t help if your accident happens late in the afternoon and their office doesn’t accept walk-ins. High Desert Pediatrics will see walk-in patients between scheduled patients as time allows. We’ll be able to address the injury, tend it and then you can make an appointment to bring your child back for further care if needed. Walk-in hours are:
- 8-4 PM: Mon – Fri (closed for lunch 12-1)
- 10-2 PM: Saturday
On very busy days, there may be a long wait for walk-in visits, but we will stay past our closing time make sure your child receives proper medical care.
If you believe your child is experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room right away. If you’re not sure your child is experiencing an emergency, you can call our office to discuss your concerns. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
