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. You don’t need an appointment to see a provider about your health needs — simply walk in.

Urgent care centers like BestMed bridge the gap between the emergency room and your primary care physician. Basically, we’re a convenient, practical alternative to the ER for non-life-threatening issues.
Urgent care is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the health care industry. Patients with time-sensitive medical needs know that they’ll be given immediate medical attention when they walk into BestMed Urgent Care. It’s just that simple.
If you or a loved one experiences a life-threatening emergency, such as a heart attack or serious injury, you should still call an ambulance or visit the ER. However, if you have an illness or injury that does not appear life-threatening but that can’t wait until the next day, the BestMed Urgent Care team offers comprehensive same-day treatment.
Do you have a sore throat? Our on-site lab can get you immediate strep test results. Did you injure your arm? Our x-ray services will let you know right away if it’s broken. SouthStar Urgent Care routinely treats many of the diagnoses seen in the ER. We also attend to the numerous routine needs you’d bring to your primary care physician.
Thanks to our wide range of services available on-site, SouthStar Urgent Care provides convenient medical services completed within a single visit. Our quick, convenient care saves you time so that you can begin the healing process in the comfort of your own home.
