Pediatric Care

Have you considered a scenario where your child falls ill, or is sent home from school because they’re not feeling well and their regular pediatric doctor isn’t available. What will you do? Do you take your child to the nearest emergency room? The last time you were there, your little one was scared, you faced a long wait time and at the end, your co-pay was nowhere near what you had expected. Now Avecina Medical Care provides an alternative that is specifically designed as an urgent care center that treats children.

At Avecina Medical, we provide care for children in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas. Our office has experienced pediatric providers who offer medical care that is specialized for children. No appointment is needed at our walk-in clinic. Our kid-friendly staff lets children relax and feel safe, so we can focus our attention on treating their injuries and illnesses; which in turn makes everyone feel better.

After your arrival, your child is typically seen within a short period of time, usually within a few minutes. You won’t be forced to waste valuable time waiting on our doctors nor trying to find the first available appointment.
