In case of an emergency, please dial 911 or go straight to an emergency room.
Pediatric Urgent Care
We try our very best to accommodate our patients when they are not feeling well, but sometimes during peak illness seasons we cannot see everyone on the same day. Our Pediatric Urgent Care Clinic, located inside the Shannon Pediatrics Clinic, provides exceptional care for minor medical needs when you are unable to see your regular pediatrician. Patients may be seen by appointment or walk-in basis.

Below are general questions we routinely receive from our patients and parents. Your child's health is important and we encourage you to contact your pediatrician's office if you have any concerns.
It is best to have the first doctor appointment after the first week of life. Please contact our office to set up an appointment with a pediatrician.
After birth, it is expected for a newborn baby to lose some weight, as nearly all infants experience early weight loss in the first 5 to 7 days. 5 percent weight loss is considered normal for formula-fed babies, and 7 to 10 percent weight loss is normal for breast-fed babies. Most babies should regain this lost weight within 10 to 14 days of age. If you have further concerns, you should contact your pediatrician's office.
Our clinic generally follows the vaccination schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
