AFC Urgent Care Pembroke Pines offers Pediatric Walk-in Clinic Medical Services to Children 6 Months and Older 7 Days a Week

Urgent Care clinics offering pediatric services continue to increase in response to consumer demand for convenience, accessibility, and pricing concerns.

Major reasons for using Urgent Care clinics include after hour or weekend illnesses, inability to get same day appointments with their regular pediatrician, or avoiding the high cost of visiting the emergency room. But make sure you use the right urgent care center in Broward County.

While it is recommended that parents bring their children to their regular pediatric practice in order to get continuity of care, access to these services is not always immediate or limited on weekends.

At AFC Urgent Care Urgent Care, our Board Certified Pediatricians see children of all ages (6 months or older) 7 days a week, from 8 AM to 8 PM on weekdays, 9 to 5 on Saturdays, and 10 to 5 on Sundays. Our location, conveniently located on the corner of Flamingo Rd and Sheridan St can see patients from Pembroke Pines, Cooper City, Miramar and Davie.Here are some of the benefits of using AFC Urgent Care:
