Kids' Urgent Care

Kids' Urgent Care

Whether your child has a sore throat, upset stomach, allergies, or sprained ankle, our urgent care doctors will provide your family with the quality medical care they need when your family doctor isn't available.

Make the Right Call

Do not call 911 for nonemergency transportation to the hospital. Using an ambulance does not guarantee faster Emergency treatment because all patients are assessed and treated based on the severity of their condition. Injury after an automobile or motorcycle accident does not always require transportation by ambulance and does not affect insurance or lawsuit claims.

Where To Go When You Need Medical Care

You can help reduce ER overcrowding and wait times by using primary care physicians and walk-in clinics for nonemergency health care needs. Seeking medical care based on the level appropriate to treat your particular illness or condition will save you time and money, and open up resources for those in true emergency situations.
