What's more important than your child's health and your peace of mind? Here at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC, the professional, caring staff Sick-Day-Childunderstands your need for both. We understand that kids get injured and sick at all times of the day and need help fast, so we are proud to offer our urgent care services to the citizens of Riverside, New Canaan, and Greenwich, CT—read on to learn if your child should pay our office a visit today.


What exactly are urgent care services?

At Riverside Pediatrics, LLC, your board-certified physicians believe that the best medical care for your child is also the most easily accessed. That means weekends, holidays, and evenings.

Different from a well-child visit or trip to the hospital ER, an urgent care visit to Riverside Pediatrics, LLC takes care of non-emergent symptoms that also are not routine. In other words, our Greenwich-area urgent care team looks after problems that are not life-threatening but still need quick attention.


Examples of urgent care needs

Does your child have the flu, or do you suspect a strep throat? These are urgent care matters. Has your child taken a fall and needs dermabond and staples for wound closure? You can avoid the expense and long wait of a hospital emergency room by bringing your child in after-hours at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC.

Other reasons to utilize our urgent care services include:

  • Sprains
  • Burns
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Strep testing
  • Urinalysis for UTIs
  • Asthma attacks
  • Sunburns
  • Rashes
  • Pink eye

Many prescriptions that your child may need are filled right in the office, with over-the-counter medications are available, as well. Plus, when Riverside Pediatrics, LLC is also your medical home, your child will receive follow-up care with a familiar pediatrician who can keep your child comfortable and relaxed.
