Urgent Med Housecalls offers mobile urgent care for children of any age. Services are offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week over the San Francisco Bay Area. Rapid response is available upon a first-to-call basis. Appointments are not required. Night services are around for our established patients and clients, and in many cases are available to first time requesters. Our board certified emergency physicians are highly experienced practitioners of pediatric emergency and urgent care, which means your child’s care is in competent hands. Most of our providers are skilled parents at the same time.

Our physicians carry mobile medical equipment specifically designed for pediatrics. Smaller sized blood pressure cuffs and appropriate temperature measurement is available. Orthopedic splinting for smaller children is available, as well as suturing (stitches) capability. Pediatric medications are delivered so that a trip to the pharmacy is usually not required. For individuals who prefer to obtain medications from the pharmacy, we provide written or telephoned prescriptions. You can check pediatric urgent care san francisco.

Most requests for pediatric urgent care service that we receive involve sore throat, earache, cough, fever, vomiting, minor cuts and sprains. For children who require procedures for example wound repair or stitches, the child should be able to cooperate for the procedure since our doctor’s are working solo and an extra set of hands to help hold the child will not often be available. We accept patients with other illnesses and injuries upon a case by case basis. If your kid sounds potentially serious ill we will always refer to your nearest emergency room or pediatric emergency department when available. When we do assess and treat your child, with your permission, we will communicate with your primary pediatrician to help optimize followup care.
