Whether you have newborn or a teen, most in the local area will agree, that Akron Children’s Hospital is known for their outstanding, care of children. Their pediatric branch in North Canton, Ohio extends that same care. A huge benefit of this pediatrics office is that they offer convenient evening and weekend hours at many office locations.

They also offer a 24-hour nurse line should you need an answer about your child’s medical situation when the office is closed.

This Pediatric location states that they generally have same day appointments and accept most insurances, which is another important factor to to take into consideration! They do not offer any extended office hours but are conveniently located on Frank Ave. near the main hub of North Canton!

Things to Consider

As you look through this list and begin to do your own research, here are few things to consider when making your decision.

  • Do they reserve spots for same-day sick appointments? (It seems that most do, but I would still confirm.)
  • Are they scheduling out months in advance for routine well visits?
  • Do they have a nurse or physician available for questions after hours?
  • Are the wait times reasonable? I think we can all agree that no mom wants to be stuck in a waiting room with newborn crying, or a sick toddler.

Last but not least, when deciding on a new physician look at the Location! It is pretty high on my priority list, because when I wake up to a sick kid who needs to be seen asap, I want to know I can get to the doctors office quickly. Do you know how many times I’ve called my current pediatrician, and the sweet receptionist said, “well, how fast can you get here? We have an opening in 20 min!” In those moments, I am incredibly thankful I live an easy 10 minute drive away!
