News & Announcements
Walk In Clinic
Walk ins are welcome from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Monday through Friday. Walk in clinic is for sick patients with complaints such as fever, sore throat, ear pain, or vomiting. The physicians working walk in clinic alternate each day and you may not be able to see your regular pediatrician if you come to walk in clinic. You can always call and schedule an appointment with your regular doctor for a sick visit and we encourage this if your child has a history of medical problems or has an ongoing problem like headaches or stomach aches.
Tuscaloosa Pediatrics is only closed for six holidays during the year - New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We are typically open for walk in sick patients on the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve when these fall on a weekday. We are open on all other federal holidays including Martin Luther King Jr Day, President's Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day.
Since January 2019 we have been providing Lactation Services with our Lactation Specialist Vickie Lyle, RN, IBCLC for our patients. Newborns will follow up with Vickie and one of our pediatricians within 1-3 days after discharge for weight and jaundice checks. Breastfeeding moms are always welcome to call and schedule a visit with Vickie if they need advice at any time! Our Breastfeeding Support Group meets the first Tuesday of each month in our conference room and every Wednesday is baby weigh day from 11am-12pm.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a yearly checkup for all children. Call now to schedule your child's checkup.
