Please note: A given time is not a set appointment and you may have to wait after your projected time. Wait times are an estimated calculation based off the number of individuals currently waiting in the clinic and the number of individuals who are scheduled to arrive. Your estimated wait time is subject to change - new patients arrive frequently and have different medical needs. Because these are estimates, your personal experience may vary.
What Type of Appointment Do I Need?
Primary Care encompasses the comprehensive treatment of a number of diseases in symptoms and specialties including pediatrics, internal medicine and family medicine. Rather than specializing in one particular area of medicine, the physician is trained to meet all the needs of patients as one point of contact. Examples of symptoms and conditions treated by a primary care provider can include:
- Minor medical problems and injuries
- Physicals/Sports Physicals
- Medicine Checks
- Long Term Care
- Medication Refill
- Ongoing Symptoms (ex: Continued Back Pain)
- Care or Treatment Planning
- Disease Management
- Managing Existing Conditions (Migraines, Depression, Anxiety, Arthritis, etc.)
- Substance Abuse
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes and obesity
- Skin problems
Urgent Care and Express treat minor medical problems and injuries that are not life-threatening, but need the attention of a health care provider. These are not an alternative to the emergency room, but offer the ability to get care without an appointment for all patient ages. Urgent Care is available after hours, weekends and holidays. Our Urgent Care Clinics can provide medical treatment for minor illness and injuries such as:
- Cuts (stitches)
- Earaches or ear infections
- Minor medical problems and injuries
- Minor eye care
- Fractures (x-ray on-site at most locations)
- Sore throats
- Sprains, including sprained ankles (x-ray on-site at most locations)
