An urgent medical need can arise at any time of day or night, and that unpredictability can be stressful for parents. Gyula Soos, MD, FAAP, and the Dr. Soos Pediatrics team are committed to providing the care you need, when you need it, which is why they offer the After Owls clinic, in Dublin, Georgia. This resource provides the same outstanding care you know and expect but in an after-hours setting. If you have questions, call the practice. There’s no need to schedule an appointment; walk-ins are welcome.
After-hours care is similar to urgent care in providing a limited scope of medical services outside of traditional office hours. The After Owls clinic at Dr. Soos Pediatrics can address numerous medical needs, including:
This resource also provides care for acute illnesses like fever, headaches, and stomach troubles. In-house X-ray technology and lab services help speed the diagnostic process. Having convenient access to the same level of care your family receives at Dr. Soos Pediatrics during traditional business hours brings peace of mind to busy parents.
There are absolutely cases in which emergency room care is the best course of action. If your child is bleeding heavily, cannot breathe, loses consciousness, loses vision, or is unable to respond to basic verbal commands, head to your nearest emergency room immediately.
There are many types of illness or injury, however, that the After Owls clinic can better address. Consider the waiting room of an average emergency department. It’s often filled with children and adults who are seriously ill.
If your child has a relatively minor complaint, you could wait for hours before seeing a doctor. During that time, exposure to all kinds of germs is possible. Emergency room visits can also be expensive, even if you have health insurance.
Emergency rooms are also stressful places where emotions can run high. Kids can pick up on that tension and internalize it, making them feel even worse. If you come to the after-hours clinic at Dr. Soos Pediatrics and your practitioner determines you need admittance to the hospital, the administrative staff can arrange for a direct admit, which means you won’t have to spend hours in the ER waiting room.
Dr. Soos Pediatrics offers extended hours in the evening and on weekends. You don’t need to wait for an urgent medical need to take advantage of those hours. Regular health services are available during After Owls hours.
That helps busy families find time for the care their kids need to thrive. The ability to access highly skilled medical professionals in an after-hours setting is part of what makes Dr. Soos Pediatrics one of the most highly sought-after pediatric clinics in the region.
There’s no need for an after-hours appointment; you can simply come in during extended hours, and let the administrative staff know which services your child needs. If you have questions, feel free to contact Dr. Soos Pediatrics.
