We are a service driven, patient-first, private practice offering expert evaluation and treatment for adults and children with a wide-range of minor emergencies and immediate heath care needs – x-rays, stitches, IV fluids, asthma, strep, and flu, to name a few – and we do it without the long wait or high cost of a visit to a hospital emergency room. Routine visits ( ex. annual physicals) may not be covered by insurance at an urgent care facility. Please call first with any insurance questions.
