Hours and Times

We serve the communities of lower Fairfield County in Connecticut including Westport, Weston, Norwalk, Greenwich, Cos Cob, Riverside, New Canaan, Easton, and Fairfield.

How are you different from other Urgent Care Centers I have heard about?

Firefly After Hours Pediatrics Urgent care provides specialized urgent care for children from infants to age 21. Our physicians are Board Certified Pediatricians and we specialize in the care of children rather than adults. 

We are here to provide and serve the urgent care needs of your child when they need it the most!

How long will I have to wait to be seen at the office?

The average waiting time is less than 20 minutes and most patients visits last less than one hour.

Do you accept my insurance?

Firefly accepts all major medical insurances including Husky and as of July 2015, Healthy CT!

What if I have a high deductible insurance plan?

More and more insurance plans carry a high deductible even for in network providers. For your convenience Firefly will file your claim and hold your HSA or credit card on file.

After the claim is settled, the amount that was applied to your deductible will be charged to the card on file and you will receive a receipt in the mail.

If you prefer not to leave a credit card or HSA number on file, Firefly can accept payment at the time of your visit. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

What if Firefly is not a participating provider with my health plan?

You may still have your child seen at Firefly Urgent Care on a fee for service basis. Our fees are very reasonable in comparison to similar care at Emergency Rooms.

What services do you provide?

We manage a wide variety of Pediatric services and can manage ear infection, strep throat, fever, cough, acute croup, acute asthma, colds and more. In addition, we can manage allergic reactions, rashes and tick bites.

What if my child needs to go to the Emergency Room?

We work closely with local emergency rooms including Stamford, Norwalk and Greenwich Hospitals so that you are seen at the ER quickly.

What if my child is sick before 4:00PM?

If you wish to be seen during the day Firefly is available during weekdays for urgent care appointments through our online portal. Simply click on the Appointments and Registration tab and follow the steps to schedule an appointment. 

What ages do you care for?

We care for patients from newborn through age 21.

Do you take x-rays?

We are capable of managing lacerations that require stitches, eye injuries, sprains, and broken bones. We have a state of the art digital x-ray suite and provide you with a digital copy of your x-ray. We have a contract with Advanced Radiology Associates of Stamford who read our x-rays the next day to confirm the diagnosis of our physicians.

Do you accept Connecticut Husky Insurance?

Firefly is a participating provider with Husky A and B insurance

My child already has a Pediatrician, can I still be seen at Firefly Pediatrics?

We complement the care provided by your child's Pediatrician and we work with your child's Pediatrician. We are a cost effective, convenient, child friendly alternative to the Emergency Room and adult oriented general urgent care centers
