We have streamlined our process to make your visit quick and efficient, 7 days a week. If you feel under the weather, simply walk in and we will do our best to take care of you in a timely manner.


There are too many stories about people paying huge amounts of money for emergency room visits that could have been taken care of for a fraction of the cost. To give you an idea of the cost difference, basic urgent care visits average at roughly $100, while the average cost of an emergency room visit comes to about $1,300. Many injuries and illnesses can be treated at our walk-in clinics such as sprains, the common cold and flu, fevers, coughing, and other similar conditions. If you are facing something more serious such as a loss of consciousness, a heart attack, or uncontrollable bleeding, an emergency room is the right choice.
