Acute Care

Pediatricians are trained to evaluate acute and chronic illnesses from birth to age 21. Our acute care clinic is where this happens. Our acute care clinics allow you to make an appointment to evaluate your concerns.

Each pediatrician rotates weekly through an acute care clinic. We will make every effort to match the pediatrician of your choice with your schedule.

If you prefer the next available appointment for your child, please let the receptionist know and we will gladly get you in as quickly as possible. 

In addition, we offer pediatric walk-in clinics for established patients at our Fayetteville and Pinnacle Hills locations. Your child will see a board-certified pediatrician at the walk-in clinic. 

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

  • COVID-19 symptoms
  • Rashes
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Earache
  • Diarrhea and Vomiting
  • Sprains
  • Minor injuries
  • Minor cuts
  • Minor eye injuries or infections
  • Sudden Abdominal pain
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Foreign body removal

For more information, visit our Childhood Illnesses Guide. Our handy guide provides a list of common childhood illnesses with descriptions, at-home care tips, and help to decide when your child needs to see the doctor.


Our pediatricians and staff have 30 years of experience caring for children. Drs. Joe T. Robinson and Terry Payton founded the Northwest Arkansas Pediatric Clinic in 1983 to provide comprehensive care for children from infancy to adolescence.
