OKLAHOMA CITY - Parents with children know when a fever or cough comes along, it's not always at the best time of day.

Many times, trying to get your child in for a doctor's appointment involves waiting, patience and taking time off work.

Just for Kids Pediatrics have opened up an after-hours Urgent Care clinic, on Labor Day to show a little Labor of love.

Having a child means there's no right time for them to get sick.

"He hasn't been feeling well lately so it's just so convenient to have them right down the street," Devin Inhofe, mother of 7-year-old Brodie says.

She brought him to the Just Kids Urgent Care for a possible cold.

"They focus on kids needs and it's very reassuring as a parent to know they're going to get the best care they need," Inhofe said.

The new Urgent Care clinic will focus on kids only, newborns through 18 years old.

"Any mom knows that when you have kids they get sick and it's going to a lot of times fall in the evening hours and on those weekends and holidays when your primary pediatrician's office may be closed," Dr. Angela Yaffe, owner and lead pediatrician for Just Kids Pediatrics and Urgent Care says.

The clinic on Southwest 119th street will be opened weekday evenings from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. and all holidays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"And that's when your kids get sick and you need to get them checked out, saving you a wait in the ER saving you that wait time and having a piece of mind to bring them in," Dr. Yaffe said.

A tree house theme helps make patients more at ease.

"It's where kids come and feel exclusively it's for them, it's not for mom, dad, grandma and grandpa it's really just for them," Dr. Yaffe says.

Brodie's mom says it even makes her children excited to come to the doctor.

"There's no problem, they're happy to come, love the doctors, love the PA's everything," Inhofe said.

The clinic is not the first of its kind in the Oklahoma City area, there are others with similar concepts in Edmond and north of the city.

Just Kids Pediatrics is opening another pediatric clinic tomorrow in Moore, they say they already have a Moore Urgent Care facility in the works.

The clinic does accept Sooner Care patients. If you'd like more information visit their website here.
