COVID-19 testing is prioritized for patients and family members with COVID-19 symptoms, patients who have had a known COVID-19 exposure, and Healthcare Workers/Frontline Employees.

COVID-19 tests are billed through your insurance provider. We bill for an office visit and an independent lab bills for the test. Your insurance provider may require a deductible or co-pay. Many patients are able to submit a receipt for reimbursement, so please contact your insurance provider with any questions regarding the price of testing.  

Our lab generally has results in 3-4 business days, but due to a recent surge in cases nationwide results are taking up to 6 business days. We apologize for the delay in getting results. 

Before visiting for COVID tests, please fill out the Patient Forms.

After filling out the form, please email a copy of the front and back of your insurance card(s) to [email protected] with the patient name as the subject line. If you are visiting for Urgent Care, you can come anytime. If you are visiting for a COVID test, please email  preferred date(s) and time(s) for your test along with your insurance card and we will get back to you to confirm an appointment slot. 

All phone calls related to COVID-19 testing must be directed to 650-410-0822 . 

For regular Urgent Care, you can continue to call 650-579-6581.

All drive-in exams are performed by our pediatricians wearing full protective gear. We continue to see babies and injured patients in the clinic and we ask all parents and patients to wear a face mask. 


Welcome to After Hour Pediatrics, we are a family-friendly children’s urgent care and minor emergency center in downtown San Mateo, 15 minutes south of San Francisco Airport.

For over 20 years, we have provided urgent medical care to babies, children and young adults from San Mateo, Burlingame, Millbrae, San Bruno, San Carlos, Belmont, Redwood City, and Foster City.  The clinic is easy to find, and has parking right outside the door.

Our clinic is open for Urgent Care after hours when your child’s doctor is often unavailable.  Just walk in!  You don’t need an appointment.

We have some of the best children’s doctors in the Bay Area and are a great alternative to the hospital emergency room, which can be traumatic and incur higher costs and longer wait times.

Most major health insurances are accepted.  Our billing office manages the entire process with your insurance company.

Our staff is kind, caring and dedicated.  We aim to bring a smile back to the faces of the 7,000 children who come through our doors each year!

With healing hands and caring hearts, we look forward to helping your child.


Quick, efficient, and very professional. This place is wonderful and I would recommend in a heartbeat!


I love After Hours Pediatric Urgent Care. With 5 children it’s comforting to have a place…where the doctors actually listen, and they always follow up….from stitches to asthma to strep and even flu. This is our first choice hands down.
