Can all children in the family see the same provider?

Yes. All children in the same family can see the same provider, and in the same visit. Families with multiple children also may choose to see different providers, depending on their needs. Efforts are made to schedule adjacent appointments.

Can you help me determine if my child needs see one of your healthcare providers?

A pediatric triage nurse is available Monday-Friday, from 7:30 AM–5:00 PM, to evaluate problems, answer questions, and help determine if a child needs to be seen at an OMC clinic. The triage nurse also can assist in setting up the appointment, and providing the healthcare team information in advance of the visit.

Can I see a pediatrician on weekends?

Providers are available at the Rochester Northwest Clinic on Saturdays from 8:00 AM–3:00 PM. This non-emergency, walk-in clinic sees patients of all ages and can address acute illness, as well as lacerations, rashes, dislocations, sprains, and fractures.

Can female adolescents continue to see a pediatrician for gynecological care?

Pediatricians at OMC provide gynecology care for female adolescents and teens, including pelvic exams, birth control, and care for special issues, such as painful menstruation.

Do pediatric care providers take care of fractures?

No, fracture care and casting are not done in pediatrics, but our providers will refer patients to our Orthopedics department for further evaluation and treatment.

Are walk-in appointments available?
