What Can Urgent Care Do for You?

There are times in life when you can’t wait for medical care. Sometimes you call your doctor’s office and it is several days – or even weeks – before they have an appointment available. Waiting for an appointment likely means more days of misery. This is where urgent care clinics come in handy!

•    Lacerations 
•    Abrasions

•    Sprains, strains and contusions

School and Sports Physicals 

A sports physical is also known as a pre-participation exam (PPE) that assesses your health and fitness levels for enrollment in sporting events. During the examination, our medical provider will check for any injuries or illnesses that could make it unsafe for athletic participation. The provider will also complete the medical paperwork your school district requires for your child to participate in school sports.
