Walk-In Appointments Q&A

What are walk-in appointments?

Walk-in appointments enable you to see the One World Pediatrics team without booking in advance. You simply show up when it’s convenient for you and wait for your turn.

Walk-in appointments are especially useful for children with urgent health issues who need to see a doctor as soon as possible and can’t wait for a routine consultation. Walk-ins are also more convenient if you don’t know when you’ll be free to attend an appointment.

What happens at a walk-in appointment?

Walk-in appointments are just like regular booked appointments. Your provider checks your child’s medical history, discusses their symptoms, and completes a physical exam.

One World Pediatrics has access to diagnostics like lab testing and X-ray imaging for speed and convenience. Once they make a diagnosis, your provider prescribes appropriate treatments and completes any procedures, such as stitching a wound.

You might have to wait longer before seeing the One World Pediatrics team than you would if you had booked in advance, but it depends on how many other people are waiting. That said, a significant advantage of walk-in appointments is that they’re quicker and less expensive than visiting a hospital emergency room for treatment.

What conditions are walk-in appointments suitable for?

You can use walk-in appointments to seek help for any acute health problem your child might have. Some of the more common conditions One World Pediatrics patients use walk-in appointments for include:

  • Coughs and colds
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Chest infections
  • Eye infections
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Croup
  • Earache
  • Fevers
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sinus infections
  • Skin rashes or hives
  • Allergic reactions
  • Sore throats
  • Sprains, strains, and other sports injuries
  • Cuts, burns, and scalds
  • Asthma attacks

The One World Pediatrics team provides compassionate care for children of all ages at walk-in appointments.

When shouldn’t I use walk-in appointments?

Walk-in appointments aren’t intended for people with potentially life-threatening emergency needs. You should visit a hospital or call 911 immediately if your child experiences problems, such as:

  • Significant bleeding that won’t stop
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Compound fractures (where bone is visible)
  • Difficulty breathing

If your child needs routine rather than urgent care, book a regular appointment. You can attend in person or ask for a telemedicine consultation.
