Walk-in Ready Care

We know that illnesses and injuries can come up quickly. For your convenience we offer walk-in Ready Care for those unexpected needs at some of our clinics. And, you may call any of our clinics to schedule same-day appointments for urgent needs.

  • Partners in Pediatrics Clinics
    – Available at all PIP locations Monday – Friday; Extended hours Monday – Thursday and weekends available at the Maple Grove location; Extended hours at the Rogers location on Monday and Thursdays until 7 p.m . See Ready Care hours.

When to use Ready Care

Consider using Ready Care if your child has a symptom listed below that started recently and is of a non-severe nature such as:

  • Common cough or cold
  • Fever (child older than three months)
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Rash
  • Pink eye
  • Cuts and minor injuries
  • Ear pain
  • Sore throat

When to make an appointment instead

Note that not all visits are appropriate for Walk-in Ready Care. If your child needs a well child exam, has ongoing symptoms, or special health care needs, please call for an appointment so we can schedule an appropriate amount of time to address those needs. New patients are welcome when appropriate for Ready Care.

If you have any questions about Ready Care services, or would like our help in determining the best appointment type for your child, please call the clinic.
