Having a sick child can be distressing. It is our top priority to address your concerns. We are available 24/7 to save you a trip to Urgent Care or to the Emergency Department.

Same Day Sick Appointments

Walk-In Sick Appointments:
Walk-In Sick Visits are available Monday through Friday beginning at 8 AM. Walk-In is for acute health problems only such as cough, fever, sore throat and ear pain that have been present for a few days. Persistent problems of greater than a week need a scheduled sick appointment.

Can’t make it by 8 AM? Please call for a scheduled sick appointment.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask you call our office at 252-364-8790 to let us know you have arrived. Please stay in your car. A nurse will come out to assist you. Please know we will be wearing personal protective equipment and ask that you wear a mask as well. Should you enter the building, please know masks are required.

In Office Appointment Hours:
Monday – Friday 8:00 AM-noon; 1:00-5:00 PM

Virtual Appointments:
These appointments are scheduled during regular appointment hours, either same day or for another time. Please download the Anytime Pediatrics app. If using a desktop, you will need to use Chrome. The Practice Code is 8790.

After Hours Sick Care

After Hours:
If you have an urgent/emergent situation and need to talk to someone, call our office to speak with a provider who will recommend a plan. After hours calls are billed to your insurance. Copays, coinsurance and deductibles apply.

Saturday Virtual Appointments:
These are virtual on demand appointments using Anytime Pediatrics. You can find the hours of these appointments posted on Facebook the previous Friday. Don’t have Facebook? Provider hours will be listed in the Anytime Pediatrics app.

Missed Appointments/Late Cancellations:
We require a 24-hour notice for appointment cancellation. Appointments cancelled the same day or missed without notice are subject to fees and can lead to dismissal from Pirate Pediatrics. We ask that all patients arrive on time and prepared for their visit. Late arrivals may need to reschedule resulting in a missed appointment. Please see Financial Policy for more information.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
