MedRite Offers Children’s Urgent Care Services in Manhattan
The children’s urgent care services offered by MedRite Urgent Care in Manhattan are designed to help you through those times when your child needs immediate medical attention for a non-life-threatening illness or injury, but your pediatrician or primary care physician is unavailable. Of course, emergency rooms are always open, but a trip to a hospital almost always involves a lengthy wait and an even lengthier bill. Plus, a visit to a chaotic ER can be a frightening experience for an adult, let alone a child. Even though an ER staff is specially trained to help calm their patients’ nerves, they often simply don’t have the time necessary to soothe an upset child as they rush from patient to patient. With MedRite, you now have an alternative for children’s urgent care. We’ve created an environment designed to help kids feel comfortable, so that receiving a diagnosis and any necessary treatment is not a completely miserable experience for them – or you.
Although MedRite offers comprehensive healthcare services, you should be aware that we are not equipped to handle emergencies. Therefore, if you believe your child’s life may be in danger, you should always call 911 or take him or her directly to the nearest ER. To address non-life-threatening conditions, our broad spectrum of children’s urgent care services includes treatments for:
- Asthma attacks
- Abrasions, cuts, and wounds
- Animal and insect bites
- Minor burns
- Colds, coughs, sore throats, and flu
- Diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting
- Ear and eye infections
- Minor fractures
- Nose bleeds
- Skin rashes
- Sinus infections
- Sprains and strains
- Urinary tract infections
After you arrive at a MedRite urgent care center in Manhattan and are welcomed by our staff, your child will generally be seen within a few minutes. We can eliminate the need for you to sit for several hours in an ER waiting room or wait days (or even weeks) for an appointment with your regular physician. What’s more, our onsite lab and X-ray capabilities allow us to further streamline our delivery of children’s urgent care services, so you and your child won’t have to travel around to different testing centers in order to get the answers you are looking for.
A visit with a physician can be a scary and stressful event for a child, but it doesn’t have to be. At MedRite Urgent Care, we believe the experience can actually be interesting – and perhaps even a little fun – and we’ve designed our children’s urgent care services with this in mind. Our kid-friendly approach will encourage your child to relax and trust us to help him or her feel better. Just walk into one of our convenient locations in Manhattan whenever you need us. We accept all major health insurance plans, and we’ll be happy to forward your child’s medical records on to his or her pediatrician.
