Our friendly, knowledgeable Carolina Kids staff works hard to make your visits to our office as smooth and stress-free as possible. We have provided information about our office on this page, including directions, hours, insurance and billing.
Our regular office hours are listed below. We will do everything possible to insure that all sick children with urgent needs are seen on the day you contact us (even if our schedules are busy). Whenever possible, we will also work children who need to be seen for an emergency need which can be addressed in our office into our schedule for immediate attention. NOTE: CAROLINA KIDS PEDIATRICS WILL NOT HAVE A SICK WALK-IN HOUR AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE WALK-IN PATIENTS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC - PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE TO SCHEDULE ALL APPOINTMENTS. Our sick walk-in hour is normally from 8:30-9:15 am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. During this time, you may bring your child in without an appointment for an acute illness or health problem (if your child needs a well visit, or evaluation for a chronic or complex problem, please make an appointment instead of coming during the sick walk-in hour). We also offer 7 hours each week of after hours appointments (after 5 pm) for urgent illnesses and injuries from 5 pm - 6:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and from 5 pm to 6 pm on Friday. Our office is closed for lunch from 12:30 to 1:30 pm on weekdays. Weekend visits are by same-day appointment, so please call us as early as you can during the hours listed below if your child needs a weekend sick appointment. We offer appointments for 8 hours each weekend (9 am - 1 pm on Saturday and Sunday). Please call before 1:00 pm if your child needs a same-day sick appointment on weekends. We do not have walk-in hours on weekends.
We will not charge our patients for after-hours telephone calls (unless the call results in a new medication being prescribed, in which case there is a nominal fee). One of our four pediatricians is always on call for our practice, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
