Most major insurance plans are accepted and appointments are never needed, although you can make one at to avoid the wait.

When to use Urgent Care versus the Emergency Room:

Depending on you or your loved one's condition, an urgent care facility might be more appropriate than going to an emergency room, or it could be the reverse situation. An emergency is defined as a serious medical condition or symptom caused by an injury or sickness, or mental illness, which arises suddenly and requires immediate care and treatment to avoid death or disability. This can be a difficult decision to make, especially when things are happening quickly, which is why we've put together the list below to help guide your decision. If you think you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
