What is Urgent Care?
Urgent care centers provide medical care for acute illness or injury that requires immediate care but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to the emergency room. These services are provided on a walk-in basis, with extended hour’s access. Urgent care is best used when your primary care physician is not available, or the injury or illness is beyond the scope of the doctor’s office. The urgent care center is, in fact, the bridge between the primary physician and the emergency room.
Family Practice, General Practice, Pediatric or Internal Medicine physicians as well as nurse practitioners or physician assistants provide urgent care medical services.
Our fees are much less than any emergency room at your local hospital. We accept cash, personal checks and major credit cards. Payment is due at the time of service. We are participating providers for Lakeside Community Healthcare Medical Group and Lakeside Community Healthcare Network. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicare.
Common conditions treated through urgent care include, but are not limited to:
Urgent care is not a substitute for your primary care physician. Do not use urgent care for routine medical services that can be provided by your doctor's office or for any type of follow-up care. Remember to always attempt to contact your primary care physician before accessing urgent care services.
