UT Health East Texas Physicians pediatric clinic is an urgent care provider located in Carthage, Texas at 409 W Cottage Rd 2nd floor. The clinic can diagnose and treat a wide range of non-life threatening conditions, including nausea, vomiting, persistent diarrhea, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, cuts and bruises, as well as sprains and broken bones. It can test for flu, strep, STDs, pregancy, drug use and numerous other conditions. Walk-in urgent care clinics usually have shorter wait times than emergency rooms. However, COVID, flu season and other issues have led to longer wait times in recent months. Booking online or calling ahead to schedule an appointment can cut your wait time significantly. While urgent care is covered by Medicare Part B, not all clinics accept Medicare. The same applies to Medicaid. As with all insurance, we encourage you to call the clinic or visit their website to confirm that they are in-network with your health insurance.
