About Practice

MVP Pediatric Urgent Care provides expert pediatric urgent care services to children from infancy through young adulthood in Tarzana, Los Angeles.

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.  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 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 facility is open seven days a week, with extended hours and holiday hours, too.  No appointment is needed, and walk-ins are welcome. With X-ray and lab facilities on-site, immediate access to a pharmacy, and proximity to Providence Tarzana Medical Center, we can treat almost any non-life threatening illness or injury. Having a sick child is stressful, but our state-of-the-art children’s facility can give you peace of mind. You won’t find any ER or adult urgent care turmoil here.

Anytime you have questions or concerns about your child’s health, we are ready to partner with you and your primary pediatrician to optimize your child’s health care. Collaboration with parents and families’ pediatricians is very important to us and helps provide the continuity of care that your child deserves.
