Urgent Care

We take walk-ins and care for patients with minor emergencies, including minor lacerations, sprains, and strains, and provide IV fluids. With lab and x-ray on-site, you can get immediate medical care without the long wait and higher copays of an emergency room or an urgent care facility.
