If your child is sick after business hours, your issue is urgent (cannot wait until next business day) and you need to speak to the Pediatrician or Physician Assistant on call, dial 936‑582‑5620 to have a provider return your call.
For Urgent-Care After Hours Treatment, we recommend Urgent Care For Kids, First Choice ER, Woodlands Emergency Center, HEB RediClinic or CVS MinuteClinic. The clinics at HEB, Walgreens, and CVS are for minor illnesses only.
Urgent care facilities can diagnose and treat most common Pediatric illnesses and conditions without the wait time of a hospital ER. Most free-standing Urgent Care Centers provide x-rays, suturing or stapling of lacerations, and full lab testing.
Hospital-based Emergency Room Care (St. Lukes, Texas Children's, The Woodlands Memorial Hermann, or Conroe Regional) is recommended for extremely high fevers, excessive vomiting, complicated bone fractures, large lacerations or lacerations on the face, seizures, head trauma with loss of consciousness, large burns, poisoning or overdose, serious allergic reactions, respiratory distress in infants less than 6 months, scrotum pain, or twisted testicles. If you are not sure where to take your child, call an urgent care center close to you and they will let you know if they are able to provide the care needed or will direct you to an ER based on your child’s symptoms.
