What is your after-hours policy and Urgent Care referral locations?

Urgent medical matters can be handled by one of the several urgent care centers in the metroplex.  Medical City Children’s Urgent Care (formerly, Acute Kids Urgent Care), Pediatric After-Hours, NiteHawk Pediatrics Urgent Care, Urgent Care for Kids, Pediatric Urgent Care, and Cook Children’s Urgent Care are staffed by Board Certified Pediatricians. Should you have concerns about the medical advice given or the assessment, please contact a provider through 469-333-1KID to address those concerns.

Please note that you always have the ability to contact a SHINE medical provider after hours for medical advice.  We may have different recommendations from urgent care centers regarding non-critical care as we are an integrative pediatric practice. Phone calls after office hours will have a $60 charge. Phone calls related to ongoing medical care regarding that day’s care of your child in the office or by phone will not be assessed a charge.
