Walk-in Clinic | Urgent Care

Walk-in clinics make it easy and convenient to get the care you need if you have a medical problem that cannot wait for a regular appointment with a provider. Walk-in clinics can treat problems that need same-day attention but are not a big emergency. Urgent care clinics are like walk-in clinics with more capabilities. They can treat more serious problems.

If you’re having a major emergency, call 911 or go to your local hospital's emergency department, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
