Walk In Policy

Sunrise Pediatrics Office Walk In Policy


Our philosophy in Pediatrics is that no sick child be turned away.  We encourage parents to make appointments for their child but do understand that kids get sick and that may not always be possible.


We accept walk in patients every day in every one of our locations until the minute we close.  You can minimize your wait time by calling ahead for the same day appointment and having any necessary paperwork completed before you arrive, including making sure that we are your child’s designated provider on their insurance.  All new patients are required to have our new patient paperwork completed and every child must have an update completed each year as is required by your insurance carrier and state and federal law. (See the resource section for forms)


Our appointments will be prioritized over walk-ins, but you will your child will be seen and given the same attention so please be patient and we will do our best to update you on current wait times.
