The Walk-In Urgent Care Center’s staff provides high quality comprehensive medical care for non-life threatening illness or injury for the entire family. They “fill the gap” between primary physicians and the Emergency Department and offer diagnostic capabilities that include x-ray services, EKG, and point of care laboratory testing.
Treatment is available for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries such as respiratory infections/illness; ear, nose, eye, and dental complaints; soft tissue infections and injuries; skin complaints; gastrointestinal, genitourinary and musculoskeletal complaints; headache/minor head injury, and fever.
The Walk-In Urgent Care Center is not a substitute for emergency care. Serious or life threatening problems, such as chest pain, seizures, severe burns, difficulty breathing, deep cuts and severe bleeding, numbness, and vomiting blood should be treated in an Emergency Department.
