Patients can either schedule same day appointments or walk in. As a hospital based clinic, we have a host of resources not available to most Urgent Care centers. This includes access to in-person consults from specialists, strong ER backup for high acuity cases, and good integration with our primary care clinics. Our providers and staff are dedicated to our patients and would love to welcome others who share our mission!
