Weekend After-Hours Clinic

We understand that illnesses and injuries don't always happen during regular business hours. That's why we offer convenient walk-in care through our Weekend After-Hours Clinic in downtown Madison. Our clinic accepts walk-in patients of all ages for non-emergency situations every Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No appointment necessary. Wait times vary due to patient volumes.
