If you are ill or have a minor injury, you know how important it is to receive immediate medical attention to start feeling better as soon as possible. However, it may be hard to decide whether the emergency room or your primary care provider is the best option for care. Luckily, urgent care is available as a bridge between these two services that provides fast, effective care to help you get back to feeling your best.
At SouthStar Urgent Care, we are open seven days a week and offer extended hours so patients can receive the care they need on their schedule. We gladly accept walk-ins and have multiple exam rooms to reduce wait times. Our providers are passionate about providing world-class care and give each patient the same attention and respect they would expect from health care providers themselves for a positive patient experience.
