What Is Urgent Care?
Little things, like a skinned knee, can be treated
at home. Life-threatening conditions, like chest pains, require a
trip to the ER. For everything in between, there's urgent care.
Urgent care offers treatment to patients of all ages for injury
and illness, like the flu, asthma attacks, broken bones, cuts
requiring stitches and more, providing you a one-stop option for
unscheduled, time-sensitive care.
At MedExpress, we take urgent care a step further, by combining
care with compassion and a consideration for your time. Since
no appointment is necessary and a doctor is always on site, you can
take comfort in knowing that great care will always be there when
you need it.
