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.
