“It’s just a walk-in. You don’t need to call, you just walk in and we’re available for you,” said Lisa Hazard, nurse and office manager at Pediatric Now Medical Care in Liverpool.

Pediatric Now Medical Care in Liverpool serves as an urgent care clinic that sees patients from birth to age 21.

“We do more things that are like immediate that you maybe can’t get in to see your doctor,” said Dr. Nicole Mirjafari, a board-certified pediatrician at Pediatric Now Medical Care.

Dr. Mirjafari opened the practice less than two months ago, after moving to the Central New York area from Florida. Mirjafari said she noticed the lack of pediatric urgent care in the area.

“Since there was nothing, I thought it was a good time to open something up,” said Dr. Mirjafari.

It’s open seven days a week, including nights and holidays, helping parents with sick kids get the medical care they need fast and easy. The clinic also offers a number of services.

“Your typical ear infections, sore throat, strep throat, mono,” said Hazard.

Pediatric Now Medical Care also offers in-house testing for COVID, RSV, flu, and more.

“We do suturing if you have a laceration, we do ear flushes if someone is complaining of ear pain and there’s wax in their ears, we can flush the ears out,” said Hazard.

The clinic also plans on offering X-rays down the road.

“We might add a lab, drawing blood and things like that,” said Hazard.

Expanding outside services.

“We’ll have more staff and as we get busier, we’ll add more people,” said Dr. Mirjafari.

Helping to give families the care they need.

Pediatric Now Medical Care is located at 5100 W Taft Road Suite 1B Liverpool, NY 13088.
