These visits may consist of flu-like symptoms, testing for COVID-19, broken bones that need to be put in a cast, burns that need to be treated, and many other issues that need treatment.
The fantastic benefit of having urgent care and primary care together is an urgent care does not need an appointment. If your primary care provider is busy, you know you can still be taken care of by another physician for whatever you may be dealing with. This makes it a convenient option for many, and not only does convenience make our clinic the first choice for many of our patients, but the affordability of a physician seeing you at a primary care as well.
We accept cash-pay patients as well as patients with in-network insurance. We have a list of insurance companies we are in-network with available here.
