PEDIATRIC URGENT CARE IN TARZANA, CA
MVP Pediatric and Urgent Care provides urgent care for children from infancy through young adulthood in Tarzana, Los Angeles.
In fact, we call ourselves MVP Pediatric & Urgent Care for one simple reason: At our office, your child is the MVP!
We believe strongly in the importance of child-specific health care. We are a team of pediatricians and nurses specializing in diagnosing and treating injury and illness in children, from infancy through young adulthood. Our philosophy is that children are not small adults: They require special care and deserve health care professionals who have been trained in pediatrics.
MVP Pediatric & Urgent Care was created out of a community need for a dedicated urgent care for children. While there were many urgent cares and ERs to choose from for acute care in Los Angeles, there were few that were specialized in caring just for kids. With that in mind, the founders of MVP Pediatric & Urgent Care , a pediatric critical care physician and licensed clinical social worker, developed a facility to care for and provide pediatric services for children. Since its opening on May 18th, 2015, MVP Pediatric & Urgent Care has cared for thousands of infants, children, and young adults in Los Angeles and provided unparalleled medical treatment for acute illnesses and injuries.
For those unexpected illnesses or injuries — like broken bones, bad coughs, sore throats, fevers, or any unexpected pain or discomfort that your child is experiencing — visit us for immediate medical care. Our urgent care for children is open seven days a week, 365 days a year, with extended after-hours and holiday hours, too. No appointment is needed, and walk-ins are welcome.

Parents often worry about their children’s water intake: are they getting enough liquids? The thought of having your child hospitalized for dehydration is something all parents dread.
