A Message From the Medical Director

Welcome to Upstate Golisano Pediatric After Hours Care

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your child in a positive and kid-friendly environment. Our physician and nursing staff have a wealth of experience taking care of children and are here to help when you need us.

As the area’s only pediatric urgent care center, we provide care that is geared specifically towards children and their unique needs. We have a full complement of laboratory and radiology services available on site if needed but understand that sometimes a popsicle and reassurance are all that may be needed to get your child feeling better.

Our brightly colored waiting room has silly activity mirrors, a beautiful 160 gallon aquarium and children’s movies playing to make your little one feel more comfortable when they are not feeling their best. We work closely with your child's doctor to keep them up to date on the care we have provided and send a summary of your child's visit with us the same day. We strongly support the American Academy of Pediatrics position on maintaining a "medical home" for your child and believe that all well child examinations should be performed by your primary physician. At Upstate Golisano After Hours Care, we truly love taking care of kids and hope that you don’t need us…but are happy to help if you do!

Warmest Regards,
Alison McCrone, MD, FAAP
