If you have children, then you may have experienced bringing a child to the hospital or immediate care facility to get stitches. At AMD Urgent Care, we will greet you with courtesy and understanding. We love children and go out of our way to get on their level to provide the care they need while making them as comfortable as possible. For many cases where a child has an open wound that requires stitches, we wipe away their tears with a Popsicle.
In some cases, when the cut is not too deep, we use a special skin glue that lasts about five to ten days in order to minimize scaring. In the case where stitches are required, we use patterns and sutures that minimize scaring but have the necessary strength to hold the wound closed.
All of our patients are pleased with the cost savings they receive from our urgent care compared to the emergency room or other urgent care facilities.
Stitches for Adults
Our Providers at AMD Urgent Care are trained in all types of wound care; from Pediatric to Adult injuries. Whether your child has fallen and cut their knee, or you grabbed the hedge trimmer when you shouldn’t have, our Doctors can care for your wounds with sutures or skin glue. Although we usually give kids a Popsicle, if you would like one, we will probably have extras!
