In situations such as these, an urgent care clinic like Clio Urgent Care is your best bet. We can provide high-quality care for your child with any of their medical concerns. Our friendly and professional staff are committed to providing compassionate and expert care to children and adults alike.

While we are proud to offer a wide array of services, you must take your child to the nearest emergency room if you suspect that their injury or condition is life-threatening. Urgent care clinics are not equipped to treat life-threatening medical emergencies. Instead, they focus on treating patients with significant but not life-threatening medical concerns so that emergency rooms can focus exclusively on saving lives.
Do I need to make an appointment for my child?
No appointments are necessary at Clio Urgent Care! When you bring your child into our clinic to see a pediatrician, you will be promptly seen likely within a half-hour of your arrival. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis so that we can see all patients swiftly and efficiently. As such, you will not have to endure long wait times before seeing a pediatrician.
Do you have to take your child to a pediatrician?
It is not necessary to bring your child to see a pediatrician, as any general practitioner can provide adequate treatment for whatever medical concerns your child has. That said, pediatricians have further education and training to give medical care to children or teenagers. As such, by bringing your child in to see a pediatrician, you will benefit from an extra degree of expertise than you would with a general practitioner. At Clio Urgent Care, we have fully licensed and trained pediatric physicians and physician’s assistants. They can provide your child with expert medical attention.
Do you accept insurance?
We accept most major medical insurance plans at Clio Urgent Care for any of our pediatric services! We do ask that you verify some logistical details with your benefits provider before you visit Clio Urgent Care. These logistical details include the specific coverage that they provide if they require any co-payment, and whether or not your coverage is active and up to date. If you would like to see the full list of insurances that we accept at Clio Urgent Care, please visit our Insurance page!
