About After Hours Pediatrics


After Hours Pediatrics Urgent Care offers eight convenient locations in Tampa Bay, South Florida, and Naples staffed by a team of board certified pediatricians.  Founded in 1997, our practice is dedicated to supporting families and their physicians by delivering immediate medical attention to children, from newborns through 21 years of age, at times when their doctor’s office is closed. As partners with your child’s regular physician, we provide same-day reports faxed directly to your doctor’s office to ensure continuity of care.


Each of our locations is designed to be a warm and welcoming environment. From ample free parking and rocking chairs for parents, to children’s movies and TVs in exam rooms, everything about After Hours Pediatrics Urgent Care is family-friendly. Our goal is to deliver the care your child needs as quickly as possible, getting you in, treated and on your way – fast! Most of all, each member of our team has a passion for caring for children – a commitment that has made After Hours Pediatrics Urgent Care the trusted choice of primary care physicians for urgent pediatric services.
