Urgent care clinics are essential to the proper function of the healthcare system. They handle nearly all non-life-threatening medical concerns, and perform invaluable lab services, such as x-rays and blood tests. By providing care for non-life-threatening medical concerns, urgent care clinics allow hospital ERs to focus on treating more serious situations, while significantly reducing their waiting times.
Do I Need to Make an Appointment?
No, you do not need a referral or an appointment to be seen by the physician at Priority Urgent Care. We accept walk-in appointments for a wide variety of medical concerns, from injuries like strains, sprains and broken bones, to illnesses like the common cold and influenza. If you are experiencing a serious or life-threatening situation, visit a hospital emergency room immediately.
What Types of Insurance Do You Accept?
We accept all major health insurances and directly submit our claims to the provider. We bill other insurance companies directly as well. Depending on your benefits, if your deductibles are not met, you may need to pay directly. We DO accept Medicaid/Husky.
