Same-Day Sick Visits in Cohasset, MA
When your child is sick, the last thing you want to do is wait days to see a doctor for care. Here at Child & Adolescent Health Specialists, P.C., we understand that certain symptoms and conditions cannot wait for treatment. The good news is that we’re prepared. This is why we offer our patients same-day visits for more urgent matters that require immediate medical attention.
While it is important to go to your local ER if you are dealing with a serious or life-threatening medical emergency, most non-emergency conditions can be addressed by our primary care providers. The benefit of having an established pediatrician is that they can provide you with continued care throughout the years, which means that they maintain a longstanding relationship with you and know your detailed medical history. This means that we can also provide you with better and more tailored care when you come into our Cohasset, MA office.
When it comes to treating time-sensitive matters, turning to a primary care physician may be a better option than rushing to an urgent care where they don’t know you or your medical history. There are many situations in which you may require care within 24 hours. Some reasons for turning to us for urgent medical care include:
- Eye infection
- Broken bones and fractures
- Breathing trouble
- Diagnostic services (e.g., imaging tests; bloodwork)

Minor and moderate injuries, illnesses and conditions can be examined and treated by our expert team of primary care providers.

Instead of putting your health in the hands of a medical professional you don’t know, turn to our primary care providers for treatment you trust. Don’t put off getting the medical care you need. Our team is here to address all of your urgent and non-urgent health needs.
