Urgent care is best used when your primary care physician is not available, but should not be used for routine medical services that can be provided by your doctor's office or for any type of follow-up care. Remember to always attempt to contact your primary care physician before accessing urgent care services.
If you have a life-threatening illness or symptoms, call 911 and go the the Allen Hospital Emergency Department immediately. Learn more about where to get the care you need, when you need it.
