When your primary care provider is unable to see you, you can get the care you need at urgent care clinics. Urgent care clinics provide help with minor illnesses and injuries such as sore throats, fevers, small cuts, minor broken bones, and joint sprains.
For your convenience, we now offer same-day, scheduled appointments. You can arrange your urgent care visit for a time that works best for you.
To schedule an appointment, call the urgent care clinic of your choice. Our clinics are listed below.
We still welcome walk-in patients but for your convenience we suggest calling the clinic early in the day to schedule an appointment.
