Frequently asked questions

 Medical Urgent Care

When You Can’t Wait to Feel Better…
After hours, evenings, weekends, holidays…

Do I need to make an appointment?

No. We are open seven days a week from 10am to 8pm. You can walk in any time during our hours of operation.

Do we work with other doctors?

Yes, we do. We always refer you back to your primary doctor after treatment of your medical problem. If you don’t have a primary physician, we will be glad to assist and refer you to a great physician in the community.

Do you do Physicals?

Yes, we do.  We offer pre-operative, pre-employment, educational admissions, minor work permit and sports physical.

Do you handle Workman’s compensation?

Yes, but we will see you for your initial visit and refer you to centers specialized in following workman’s compensation cases.

Do you refer patients to specialists?

Yes. We handle immediately urgent problems such as sprains, fractures, lacerations, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and refer patients to the appropriate specialist within days or immediately if the illness warrants.

Do you see patients with urgent illnesses?

We will see patients for almost anything: bladder-infections, flu, colds, high blood pressure checks, minor trauma, fractures, lacerations, ear wax removal, rashes, bites, muscular pains, etc.

Do your doctors have regular patients?

Since we are an urgent care center, our emphasis is on the urgent care patient. We always refer patients back to their primary medical doctor.

How are you different from the emergency room?

We see many of the same type of patients as seen in the emergency room. The sicker patient, those requiring hospitalization or intensive work-ups, chest pain, traffic accidents, major trauma and life threatening problems must be seen at the hospital emergency room. We often will see a patient here that should have gone to the ER. We transport these by paramedics to ER, less than a mile from our facility.

Is X-Ray available?

Yes. We have digital X-Ray facilities on site.

What if I or my family suspects a Heart Attack or a Stroke?

You should activate EMS and get to an ER as soon as possible. Urgent Care Center is not able to handle a heart attack or a Stroke.

What insurance do you accept?

We accept most insurance. Patients without insurance are welcome to visit our clinic and will pay much less than an emergency room visit.

Why not use the Emergency Room?

The significant wait and higher costs of Emergency Room visit make Medical Urgent Care the preferred option for urgent illness/injuries. If you have a true life threatening emergency, you must go to an emergency room.

Why use an urgent care center rather than my regular doctor?

The convenience of no appointments, extended hours allows flexibility to use our facility for your care. However, we do not follow patients over time and do not give childhood immunizations. Therefore, it is still important to follow-up with primary doctor for your care.
