A new pediatric Urgent Care opens for business this week. It’s called the Pediatric Urgent Care of Rochester and located in Perinton across from the Wegmans.
It’s open seven days a week and promises short wait times. Doctors say this kind of Urgent Care is important for families.
“Children are much different then adults. Their needs are different. Their diseases are different. Their pathologies are different,” says Kathleen Grisanti, a Pediatric Emergency Specialist. “So its important to have people who are trained in children. So we provide a higher level of pediatric care than what you would get if you went to a general Urgent Care center.”
This is the area’s first pediatric Urgent Care facility.
