After Hours Care Q&A

What should I do if my child needs urgent care?

Your child woke up feeling under the weather, or they suffered a sprain while playing after-school sports. When your child suffers a sudden injury or illness, you could be left scrambling to quickly get your child the care they need.

If you can’t make it to the pediatrician’s office during regular business hours, you don’t have to turn to an urgent care facility with unfamiliar doctors and staff. At Valley of the Sun Pediatrics, the team is committed to making their care convenient and available to the families they serve.

The practice offers after-hours care to established patients every day after the offices close. When you can’t bring your child in during regular office hours, the team works with you to ensure that your children get the prompt treatment they need, when they need it.

For emergency care, please see our list of recommended Urgent Care and Emergency Room centers or dial 911. 

How does after-hours care work?

Valley of the Sun Pediatrics has after-hours appointments available every weekday after 5:30pm. Call the office during regular office hours to let the team know that you’re coming in for after-hours care. This service is available to treat mild to moderate injury and illness.

After-hours care is by appointment only. If your child faces a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

What services are available after hours?

After-hours care is ideal for acute injury, illness, and other issues that come up unexpectedly and need prompt care. Consider scheduling an after-hours appointment if you can’t get to the pediatrician during the day, and your child has:

  • Acute illnesses, like the flu or strep
  • Allergies
  • Ear infections
  • Fevers
  • Lacerations
  • Sprains or strains

The team offers a range of after-hours care services for kids, but they’re available to support new parents too. Issues with lactation and breastfeeding are common, and after-hours support can quickly give you the answers you need.

With convenient after-hours appointments, Valley of the Sun Pediatrics makes it easy for your child to get the care they need. 

Call one of the offices during normal operating hours to schedule an after-hours appointment for your child or learn more about our urgent care services.
