New Options for Sick Patients at SouthCoast Health Richmond Hill Pediatrics Office

Thursday, December 16, 2021

SouthCoast Health Pediatrics in Richmond Hill is listening to our patient’s suggestions and making a change! Our goal is to offer better options for sick patients with the added benefit of reduced wait times and a less crowded waiting room. Effective January 1, 2022, SouthCoast Health Pediatrics in Richmond Hill will be extending appointments into the evening hours, as needed, for sick visits. 


Q: What is changing?

A: We are extending appointment times for same-day sick visits into the evening hours to accommodate our sick patients’ needs.


Q: Is there still an urgent care walk-in clinic from 5pm -7pm, Monday - Friday?

A: No, appointments will be scheduled by the office into the evening hours (if needed) instead of a walk-in option. No more waiting for an hour or longer to be seen!


Q: How do I get a same-day appointment for my child to see a provider if they’re sick?

A: Contact our office at 912-527-5352 to schedule a sick visit.


Q: What are our options to schedule?  Sometimes it’s difficult to get through on the phones.

A: We are aware that during the busy times in the mornings (8am-10am), patients are experiencing long wait times on our phones, and we apologize.  If you call after 10am, we can usually get to you faster and schedule your same day sick visit. You may also send messages using our patient portal if you have trouble getting through on the phones.
