Urgent care centers are designed to treat those who need attention quickly but donʼt require an emergency room visit. Urgent care centers do not require appointments and are generally open longer hours than a primary care physicianʼs ofﬁce. For instance, Southern California Emergency Medicine Urgent Care Center’s are open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day.
Generally, they can treat everyday injuries and illnesses just like Emergency Rooms. Urgent Care Now Center’s can treat everything from colds, flu and cuts to fractures, sprains and some dislocations. We provide immunizations, sports physicals, EKGs and X-rays. We perform minor surgical procedures, such as stitches. We also administer IV fluids and have on site lab-testing which you will receive results within the same day.
Urgent Care Now Center’s have solutions for individuals of all ages. From kids, teenagers, and adults with a cough, needing sports physicals, and broken bones. Some have lived in town for years but can’t get in to see their primary care physician; some have just moved to town and have yet to establish a primary care physician; some are visiting from out of town; all are looking for high quality, compassionate care from someone they can trust.
