What We Do
Nite Owl Pediatrics serves children and adults in Lakeland, Florida, as a walk-in clinic and urgent care facility that\’s open in the late afternoon and evening, even till 11:30 p.m. on weekdays and Saturday. Our fully staffed clinic and fully equipped lab can take care of minor sicknesses and injuries, including burns, cuts and stitches, rashes and bites, X-ray needs, minor broken bones, infections, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, earaches, colds and coughs, sore throats, flu and tetanus shots, and asthma treatments. Our facility takes care of your urgent physical needs, but also works with your or your child\’s regular doctors by communicating your condition and current treatment to them. If your doctor\’s office has already closed for the day, and you or your child needs quality care right now, don\’t spend the night at the hospital\’s emergency room. Come to Nite Owl and let us set your mind and body at peace.
Nite Owl Pediatrics saves you the money and time you lose at the hospital ER. Most people who develop an unexpected medical problem go to the emergency room because they don\’t know what else to do, and they normally wait for hours before they receive any treatment, even if their medical problem is relatively minor. Then when they get the bill, they almost have another medical emergency! Nite Owl provides a quality alternative to hospital urgent care, one that costs much less because of our lower overhead. We can get you treated more quickly, with less hassle, and with less stress on the wallet. Nite Owl is also more convenient for you, serving as Polk County\’s only after-hours pediatric and adult urgent care facility that offers services seven days a week, most days till 11:30 p.m. You don\’t need an appointment, just a sickness or minor injury. Do you need to know if the bone is broken? Nite Owl has on-site X-rays and trained personnel. You\’ve been coughing for days and need to know what\’s going on? Our board-certified adult care providers can diagnose your history, do blood lab work on-site, and get your treatment started. You\’ve cut your hand fixing dinner and need to stop the bleeding quickly? We can stitch it up or Dermabond it and send you back to dinner. You don\’t know who to trust with your sick little girl? Our board-certified pediatricians not only specialize in child medicine and development but also love to put children at ease and make them feel safe. We hope you stay healthy and whole, but when one of life\’s accidents happens, we\’ll be open and happy to take care of you.
Prices and Warranties
Because we are an urgent care clinic, we offer reasonable rates and make every effort to keep cost from becoming an obstacle to your health. Along with cash and major credit cards, we are a participating provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Vista, Humana, Beechstreet, Medicare and most other major insurance companies. If we are not currently a provider for your insurance company, we will still treat you, and then work with you and your insurance carrier to try to get you reimbursed. Most insurance companies are glad to pay for urgent care treatment outside the hospital because it dramatically lowers the amount they have to pay. Payment is due the day (or night) of treatment, but our rates and insurance-savvy staff keep cost from being a burden. If your illness or injury is work-related, please let us know as soon as you come in so that we can process the bill through your worker\’s compensation plan. If you would like to plan ahead and make sure that your current insurance plan would cover a visit to Nite Owl Pediatrics, please call us and talk to one of our friendly staff.
Featured Items and Specialties
Our specialty is being open when your doctor\’s office isn\’t, and our featured item is fast, friendly, inexpensive medical care for minor wounds and illnesses. We suggest that you develop a plan of action before any medical emergency arises, and as part of that plan of action, we invite you to come by our clinic at 3242 South Florida Avenue during our evening hours, check to see if your insurance covers our urgent care clinic, and (if they\’re not treating someone) meet our friendly staff and board-certified physicians. That way, when illness or injury strikes, you\’ll be calm, collected, and ready.
