Urgent Care

What is Urgent Care?

Urgent care is convenient and professional health care for conditions that require quick medical attention but are not life threatening. Urgent care is often referred to as walk-in care simply because patients can walk in and receive care without an appointment.

Urgent Care is appropriate for injuries not severe enough to require treatment in a hospital emergency department. When your primary-care physician is not available, think of urgent care for general illnesses or minor injuries such as flu, colds, sore throats, fever, upset stomachs, ear infections or sprains.
