Urgent Care Services
A walk-in urgent care should be used when you need medical care today and feel safe to wait a few hours. Examples may include: twisted or sprained ankles, animal bites, cuts and bumps, migraines, and more. If you are not able to schedul an appointment with your doctor, you may also walk in for flu-like symptoms, simple backache, runny nose, sore throat, earache, etc.
For more serious problems, patients should be seen at a hospital emergency room. The clinic physicians utilize the emergency services at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital (4800 E. Johnson) in case of more serious illness or injuries that may require hospitalization. A physician in each specialty is on call 24 hours a day if needed.
Prescription refills after hours by telephone are discouraged. Prescriptions for certain controlled substances cannot be filled after hours or on weekends.
