Acute Care

When your child is sick, you want care as quickly as possible. At Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics, we understand your concern. Our Acute Care Clinic is dedicated to treating those children who are ill. We strive to see sick children the day an appointment is requested. 

In addition, we offer a walk-in clinic with board-certified pediatricians.

We’re here for you when your child is suffering from ailments such as:

  • Rashes
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Earache
  • Diarrhea and Vomiting
  • Sprains
  • Minor injuries
  • Minor cuts
  • Minor eye injuries or infections
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Abdominal pain
  • Foreign body removal
