For your convenience, we participate with many popular insurance providers, as well as offer affordable self-pay options. Plus, data shows choosing urgent care over an emergency room visit can save you money! Sometimes even hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars, especially for non-life-threatening conditions.
Beyond our flexible hours and seven-day-a-week availability, our urgent care centers utilize the latest technology, such as online check-ins, saving you time and effort! Additionally, our centers come equipped with on-site diagnostic tools, including rapid testing for flu and covid-19, enabling quicker and more accurate assessments!

This swift service ensures you get back to your routine promptly.
Our Urgent Care Center provides a remarkably wide range of patient services.

When to Choose Urgent Care
Knowing when to choose urgent care is crucial. While our Urgent Care Center is excellent for most non-life-threatening conditions, it’s essential to recognize emergencies that require immediate attention.
You should head to the nearest emergency room or dial 911 if you or someone else is experiencing:
- Difficulty Breathing: Sudden, severe difficulty in breathing requires immediate medical attention.
- Profuse Bleeding: If bleeding is severe and uncontrolled, it’s an emergency.
- Sudden Loss of Vision: Sudden vision loss or changes in vision could indicate a serious issue.
- Serious Bone Fractures: Bones protruding through the skin or bones that are visibly deformed require emergency care.
- Inability to Stand or Walk: Sudden weakness, numbness, or the inability to move should be treated as an emergency.
- Unconsciousness: If someone is unconscious or unresponsive, call for emergency medical assistance immediately.
If in doubt, it is best to seek emergency medical attention, and dial 911.
