Same Day Sick Clinic
The Same Day Sick Clinic opens at 8am and is by appointment for our established patients only. It allows parents to bring in their sick child to a place that is familiar and has immediate access to your child's medical record. The clinic is staffed by Mid-level providers (Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistant) and overseen by a Physician. The Clinic is located in our existing building and can be accessed through the door nearest Yost Road.
Pearland Pediatrics values the role as your child’s primary care physician by providing care in a medical home environment. Children deserve a medical home- a place where their care is accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated and compassionate. The Same Day Sick Clinic will provide you with the quality care you’ve come to expect from the medical family that knows you best.
You may still schedule appointments for sick visits with your preferred physician in our main clinic. In order to serve your child better, your child should see his or her regular physician for more chronic issues such as behavior concerns, chronic headaches, chronic cough or more complex medical problems. Sports physicals and well visits should also be scheduled with your regular doctor.
