Why should I choose an urgent care center for my child?
Our urgent care center offers a unique combination of services without requiring an appointment. This allows you to bring your child to our clinic for treatment when they really need it, rather than waiting for a time slot to open at a traditional doctor’s office. East County Urgent Care is ideally suited to providing medical treatment for illnesses and injuries that should be seen by a doctor immediately, but do not necessitate a trip to the emergency room. We can offer fast and effective treatment for your child’s respiratory infection, ear infection, strep throat, sinus congestion, allergies, lice, impetigo, flu and cold, and skin conditions like bug bites, eczema, dermatitis, and even chicken pox. We can also offer care for minor fractures and burns, ankle sprains, and muscle strains.
Can you perform x-rays onsite?
At East County Urgent Care, we understand that your schedule is packed with important obligations, so running around between multiple doctor’s offices is a hassle you don’t have time for. That is why we offer comprehensive diagnostic services that we maintain in-house, so you and your doctor can precisely identify your child’s injury or other condition as quickly as possible and begin discussing treatment options right away. In addition to x-rays, we also offer efficient laboratory testing that can identify a wide range of illnesses, echocardiograph exams for cardiovascular concerns, and pulmonary function testing that can asses your child’s lung function in case of asthma or allergies. By providing everything you need in one location, we strive to make your visit to our clinic as streamlined and efficient as possible, so your child receives the care they need quickly, and you can get back to your busy life.
