There is no such thing as a minor illness when it comes to your child, and convenient timely access to a pediatrician, particularly after hours, is nearly impossible. But not anymore! Now 365 days a year, parents can walk in to a pediatric office after hours and be seen by a pediatrician at PediaTrust After-hours Care located just over 20 miles away in Libertyville.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics and recent research studies, retail-based clinics, although growing in popularity, are not an ideal source of care for children for a number of reasons, including continuity of care and depth of medical assessment. PediaTrust pediatricians provide both an immediate treatment plan and peace of mind knowing that your child has been evaluated beyond the symptoms to ensure more serious issues are not at play.
“For years, each PediaTrust practice has heard from parents what a tremendous relief it would be to have a pediatrician available evenings, weekends and holidays,” said Dr. Arie Friedman, director of PediaTrust After-hours Care Services. “Our individual practices have had a great track record of success as a result of our commitment to providing thoughtful and individualized care. Now that we have joined forces to form PediaTrust, we are thrilled to be the first independent physician group in Illinois to provide an after-hours care alternative to area families."
Convenient for North and Northwest Suburban Parents
PediaTrust’s After-hours Care service was featured by Pioneer Press last week. The group opened its doors in early July and has already garnered positive support and feedback from parents and children in the community. It is open to both PediaTrust and non-PediaTrust patients ages zero to 18 years. The service is located at Lake Shore Pediatrics at:
1800 Hollister Drive
· Monday through Friday from 6 to 10 p.m.
· Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m.
· Sundays and holidays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
