In case of life-threatening injuries or emergencies, immediately call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.
If you need medical attention for minor injuries or illnesses and can’t wait until the next day to see your primary care physician, or your regular physician is unable to offer a timely appointment, Urgent Care Centers is a convenient, affordable option.
Most Urgent Care Centers provide care without an appointment and offer evening and weekend hours. When you go to an Urgent Care Center, wait times and out of pockets costs are much less than the Emergency Room visit.
Urgent Care Centers are staffed by board-certified doctors, nurses, and other trained medical professionals. Urgent Care Centers also offer x-rays, laboratory testing and additional ancillary services.
The care received at an Urgent Care Center does not replace your primary care physician. If you are still unsure about where to seek medical help, call your physician. Most physicians can be reached after office hours.
