Same Day Appointments Q & A

Why is it so hard to get same-day appointments?

Some health care providers need to carry a high caseload to cover the overhead costs of their practice. This means they see four or more patients an hour, leaving little room for those last-minute, same-day appointments. 

Illnesses and injuries can happen at any time. Though not all health issues need medical care, it’s important to see your provider when you have a medical problem of concern. This is especially true for pediatric patients. 

Recognizing the need to provide more patient-centered care, the team at Inspirada Pediatrics leaves room in their schedule for same-day appointments. This allows you to schedule appointments on the day you and your child need professional medical care.

When should I schedule a same-day appointment?

There’s no wrong time to schedule a same-day appointment for your child at Inspirada Pediatrics. The team understands the health needs of children and the worries those health issues raise for parents. They value your concerns and do their best to address them.

Some health issues that benefit from a same-day appointment include:

  • Fever in a newborn
  • Jaundice in a newborn
  • High fever in a child
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Flu symptoms
  • Sprain or strain
  • Cut or laceration
  • Sports injuries
  • Pink eye
  • Earache
  • Exacerbation of asthma
  • Rash
  • Allergic reaction

Inspirada Pediatrics also provides mental health services and can schedule a same-day appointment if you have growing concerns about your child or teen’s mental well-being. As a board-certified pediatrician, Dr. Chuck can talk to you about mental health, complete an assessment, and recommend therapy and medications. 

What type of care can I expect at a same-day appointment?

You can expect focused and compassionate care during your same-day appointment at Inspirada Pediatrics. The team asks detailed questions about your concerns and your child’s symptoms. 

They perform a physical exam and may run lab work to confirm or rule out a diagnosis, such as testing for strep throat or the flu. The team talks to you about their findings and makes recommendations, which may include medications.

When appropriate, the team at Inspirada Pediatrics makes referrals to specialists. They also schedule a follow-up visit to monitor your child’s health and healing. 

Same-day appointments are essential for ensuring your child gets timely and consistent care from their pediatrician. Call Inspirada Pediatrics now or use the online scheduling tool to schedule your same-day appointment.
