What are the common pediatric illnesses and injuries that we treat at Immediate Care of Oklahoma?


With our comprehensive approach to pediatric care, we are able to treat many illnesses and injuries that your child may have. Our pediatric urgent care clinic can treat conditions such as fevers, colds, or unexplained rashes. Pediatric urgent care at Immediate Care of Oklahoma is equipped to also manage any injuries your child may have, as we can not plan out when a child gets injured, and we can assess the child when your pediatrician’s office is closed or does not have availability soon for an appointment. Because of this, urgent care clinics like the urgent care clinic at Immediate Care of Oklahoma are the best option for medical care if the injury or illness does not warrant a visit to the emergency room. Immediate Care of Oklahoma pediatric urgent care is also equipped to help treat and manage situations such as allergies, ear infections, strep throat, pink eye, sprains, hand-foot-mouth disease, and broken bones.

When should you start looking for a pediatrician?


For expecting parents, you should begin looking for a pediatrician no later than the third trimester of the pregnancy, as it can not only be difficult to find a pediatrician that is accepting patients, but you also want to make sure that the pediatrician you decide on has a similar out-look on medical care as yourself. You should also feel comfortable with the pediatrician before the child has arrived, as this is the person you are going to be trusting with the safety of your child for a long time, especially since your first pediatric appointment will be days after the baby has arrived for their first well-baby visit. Any doctor you find online that has an “F.A.A.P.” designation is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which means that they have committed to continuous learning when it comes to pediatric healthcare, which means they will have the most current understanding of pediatric care and most likely will have no out-dated opinions of pediatric medical care.

Does insurance cover children’s urgent care?


This will depend on your insurance provider, as urgent care for children in many cases falls into the same category as urgent care for adult patients. If you are unsure if your insurance will cover pediatric urgent care, you should reach out to your insurance provider before any incidents so you know exactly what to expect should the need arise for an urgent care visit for your child. If you are unsure and it is a situation that warrants a trip to the urgent care clinic, the clinic you choose should also be able to assist you in determining if your insurance will cover the costs or if it will be a co-pay situation, as they will know exactly what insurances they accept and the most commonly used insurance at the clinic. It is also a great option for when your pediatrician’s office is closed and it is not an emergency, since the cost of urgent care is much less than emergency room visits regardless of the reason for the trip.

Are virtual visits available for pediatric urgent care needs?


At Immediate Care of Oklahoma, we do have the option of virtual visits for pediatric urgent care situations if this is the best option for the parent. It will always be recommended to bring your child in person to urgent care if you are concerned; however, in some situations when your pediatrician’s office is closed and you are unsure if the injury or illness warrants a trip to an urgent care or emergency care facility, our doctors will be able to help you determine the best option for your child’s health. Our compassionate team is here for your pediatric needs. With the ability to book an appointment online or book a virtual visit, we also accept walk-ins for your convenience.
