You hate to watch your child suffer from an illness, and an injury or allergic reaction can put you in quite a panic. Sometimes, you can’t get your child into the pediatrician’s office right away. On the other hand, you could opt to go to the hospital, but that’s quite a bill and a long wait. You could, however, choose to bring your child into Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care, serving Apopka, FL and the surrounding area for an appointment without the price tag, at a convenient time, and without the wait.
You may wonder when you should opt to take your child to urgent care as opposed to the hospital. Basically, anytime your child isn’t suffering from a serious, life-threatening condition, we can help. For instance, if your child has a bee sting or a bug bite that causes a reaction, we’re able to give your child the care he or she needs. We also help children who sustain an injury like a sprain, strain, or fracture.
Bring your child in for relief of the symptoms from a cold, flu, or other infection. Our physician even provides your child with relief from conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye. We see children who have strep throat as well. For bacterial infections, we prescribe your child an antibiotic to actually get rid of the infection. For viral conditions, our physician offers advice to help manage your child’s symptoms as well as a possible medication to manage your child’s symptoms.
We’re able to treat minor animal bites, cuts, burns, and lacerations. We can stitch up the site, if needed. We also provide your child with a disinfectant to reduce the risk of infection in the wound tremendously.
Manage of Chronic Health Problems
If your child has a non-life-threatening allergic reaction or general allergies, our physician may assist. Our scope of practice also includes management of asthma, allergies, and other similar conditions. We understand you can’t always get your child to the pediatrician’s office for chronic conditions, which is why we offer chronic health problem management. For instance, we help children who have diabetes, kidney disease, and cystic fibrosis. With the rise of kids who have ADHD, autism, and developmental disorders, our physician found a need to offer management of these issues.
Diagnostics We Offer
When you bring your child into our clinic, we perform certain diagnostics based on your child’s condition. For instance, if he or she sustained a fall, we’ll use our X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) machine. We use these diagnostics for other purposes too. For example, we can use an X-ray to diagnose certain lung infections like pneumonia.
Besides imaging, we can also test for certain infections. For example, we can perform a strep culture to check your child for the strep virus. We also perform rapid influenza diagnostics testing. The evaluation uses a swab sample from your nose or throat to look for antigens. At our clinic, we can test your child for a urinary tract infection through a urinalysis.
Why Choose Our Facility
We not only offer expert care, but we also provide it with compassion. We understand being sick is miserable for your child. Additionally, we know how scary an appointment with the doctor is for children, so we pride ourselves on making our visits as pleasant as possible.
