Best Places to Find Weekend Healthcare for Kids in Houston

weekendkidsERcarehoustonThe weekend seems to be a magnet for childhood health concerns. Whether it’s a cold or flu getting serious or broken bones, kids seem to be their worst after hours or on the weekends. These are traditionally the times when it’s most difficult to find health care, especially for kids. Sometimes it’s not about the kids getting sick on the weekend. Many busy families have schedules that make weekday visits to the doctor for well-child checkups difficult.
