Children are not small adults. Unlike most urgent care centers and retail clinics, our pediatric Urgent Care Centers have doctors and nurses who are specially trained to diagnose and treat your child or teen. Our doctors can communicate directly with your child's doctor, informing him of any test results or procedures that were performed so he can update your child's medical records and provide follow-up care, if needed.
At our pediatric Urgent Care Centers, no appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. We're open seven days a week, including evenings and holidays.
- Monday-Friday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Saturday and Sunday: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Holidays: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Holidays include: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas
Hours may be affected by unanticipated circumstances. Check back for real-time updates.
Urgent Care Center wait times
We provide wait times for our six Urgent Care Centers to help you choose the Children's Urgent Care Center location and time of day that works best for your family.
When deciding which center to visit, consider both driving times and wait times. The closest center to you may have a longer wait time than others. No appointment is necessary.
In case of an urgent concern or emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department right away.
- Children's at Cherokee
- Children's at Forsyth
- Children's at Hudson Bridge
- Children's at North Point
- Children's at Satellite Boulevard
- Children's at Town Center
*If wait time is listed as "unavailable," the center is open and we can accept walk-in patients. Wait times are updated every minute and are estimates based on the average time it takes for a patient to be placed in an exam room. Wait times begin 30 minutes after we open and stop 15 minutes before we close.
Save your spot
We know the last place you want to be with a sick child is in a waiting room. To help you and your family spend less time waiting we have online scheduling at all six of our pediatric Urgent Care Center locations. This allows you to select a time that you would like to come to the Urgent Care Center. Once at the center, you will begin the check-in process. A reserved slot is not a set appointment, and you may have to wait after you come into the center. Patients that arrive with a more serious condition or illness may be seen before you.
Reserving your spot
To reserve your spot, follow these steps:
- Go to the Wait Times page to view Urgent Care Centers and wait times.
- Select "Save Your Spot" for one of the Urgent Care Centers.
- Choose an available arrival time and give your information. You will receive an email and text message confirmation.
- Make sure to arrive on time, or we may have to give your spot to the next family in line.
We accept walk-in patients during business hours at all of our Urgent Care Centers. The best time to bring your child to one of our Urgent Care Centers is during the middle of the day. We are busiest in the mornings, late afternoons and evenings.
