Pediatric Health Associates is excited to announce that we are starting a walk-in clinic starting Wednesday September 3rd at the Naperville office from 8 to 9am Monday through Friday. Our goal is to provide parents with more convenient access in a familiar environment with pediatricians that know your children and allow families with busy schedules the ability to better manage their day. We do request that if your child has a chronic illness, multiple issues, or a lengthy complaint that requires more time with a provider to please schedule an appointment.

Walk-ins will be based on a first come first serve basis.

In order to maintain the convenience aspect of our walk-in program, we please ask families to use the walk-ins primarily for acute illnesses such as fever, cough, sore throat, ear pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, pink eye, and arm/leg injuries. If a patient comes in with a non-acute problem that requires extra care, we may need to address your child’s needs at a scheduled appointment.

If you've been putting off your child's back to school physical due to financial pressures, we will be holding a special back to school clinic.

Wednesday August 27th from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm for uninsured children or children with limited Medicaid benefits only.
