Walk-in pediatric urgent care when you need it
When your child is hurting, waiting is not an option.
At KinderMender, there are no extended, exhausting wait times. Our pediatricians offer fast and efficient care for walk-ins and scheduled patients, alike, and our medical services cover most non-life threatening health care issues.
Avoid the emergency room and the frustration
We understand that the bumps, bruises, aches, and pains of life never occur when you’re expecting them to, and that pediatric care should not be limited to an 8-hour work day. KinderMender offers four after hours pediatric urgent care centers in Columbia, Glen Burnie, Laurel, and Timonium, and we can treat you 7 days a week, 365 days a year – even on holidays.
And once diagnosed, you’ll want to get your child home quickly so that they can recuperate, not rush to the pharmacy immediately to have a prescription filled. KinderMender provides the first dose of medications, free of charge, to allow for families time to get to their local pharmacy.
We believe that quality health care is about more than just writing a prescription. Our pediatricians and receptionists are hand-picked, ensuring that each embodies our criteria of fun, friendliness, and trust. What’s more, our after hours pediatric urgent care environment is comfortable and friendly and provides pick-me-ups such as toys, teddy bears, televisions, and much more.
For parents, we provide the assurance that you’ll never need to call three or four different places to track down your medical information. Our on-site x-ray and laboratory services can be digitally transmitted elsewhere, such as a specialist or to your primary care pediatrician.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Named one of Baltimore’s “Top Docs” by Baltimore Magazine, founder and medical director Dr. Keyvan Rafei previously worked as the Chief of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Chairman of the Pediatric Asthma Program at the University of Maryland Hospital for Children.
Dr. Rafei’s vision for KinderMender was to create an after hours pediatric urgent care center that offered top quality medical care without the long waits, indifferent staff, and sterile environment that often characterizes the average doctor’s visit.
