Children have accidents. Cuts and sprains happen quite often and these can’t be planned for. Illnesses can become acute overnight, leaving your child uncomfortable and you unable to help. This is when parents need the convenience of same-day appointments. And High Desert Pediatrics offers that convenience.
Same-Day Appointment Policy
At High Desert Pediatrics, we will always make time to see your child for acute illnesses and minor traumatic injuries. One of the best ways to ensure your child is seen in a timely manner is to call ahead in order to make a same-day appointment. This allows us to prepare to see your child and ensures you and your child won’t have an excessive wait.
In order to make the process as quick as possible, please be certain to:
- Allow for a few minutes to register and verify insurance
- Bring your insurance card and identification
- Be prepared to pay your co-pay and any unpaid charges on your account
- Call ahead if you are going to be late or unable to make the appointment
We understand that missed appointments happen, but as we do also accept walk-ins, please inform the office so that we may attend our walk-in patients and not leave another child waiting for care.
If you think that your child may need emergency care, you should immediately call 911 or take them to the nearest emergency room.
Local Pediatric Care is Available
High Desert Pediatrics is focused on providing the best pediatric care available to your children. This means ensuring we’re available when your child needs help. For this reason, if your appointment has to be made later in the day, we will still see your child even if the wait extends beyond business hours. Only the primary reason for the visit will be addressed on a same-day appointment, but you can make further appointments to discuss and attend anything concerning.
Get your child the help they need when they need it! Contact us today to schedule your appointment!
