Curbside Strep Testing
Southdale Pediatrics offers curbside strep tests for established patients ages 3 and up who have been seen by a provider in the last three years. This service is available at all of our clinic locations. Due to the COVID pandemic, please call our office to set up a curbside appointment for strep testing. The test includes a rapid screen as well confirmatory PCR test if the rapid screen is negative. If your test is positive, you will receive treatment without an appointment with a pediatrician.
Effective immediately, Southdale Pediatrics is temporarily suspending walk-in visits due to high volume of viral illness. Please contact your primary clinic to make an appointment for your child.
We offer walk-in appointments for established patients at all three of our offices from 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday. While we will do our best to see you quickly, wait times may vary based on volume and severity of need. Our pediatricians welcome walk-in visits for simple illness and injuries including:
- Fevers (children older than 3 months)
- Ear pain
- Sore throat
- Pink eye
- insect bites
- Minor injuries not requiring emergency room care
Our walk-in providers are not able to treat warts or do stitches. Well-child visits, medication refills, mental health concerns, chronic problems and gynecological concerns require an appointment.
