Urgent Care Center

The Urgent Care Center is a walk-in doctor’s office which is designed to meet the urgent, but not emergency, needs of the community.  We serve patients over two years old who need medical attention but whose primary care physician is unavailable. The Urgent Care Center is for those illnesses and injuries that are not serious enough for an emergency room visit, but that cannot wait till the patient's primary care physician is available.

At the Urgent Care Center we are able to treat minor illnesses and injuries, in addition to providing sport and school physicals. We offer the convenience of an on-site laboratory and x-ray services. We are also able to conduct bone density evaluations to test for osteoporosis and free blood pressure screenings.
