Sometimes unforeseen emergencies occur. And unfortunately, they do not always happen during normal office hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Immediate treatment for minor emergencies and unexpected illnesses is necessary to prevent the development of further, more severe complications.

For the convenience of our patients, Arrowood, Occumed and Riverview offer immediate urgent care at both locations. No appointment is necessary.

During your initial visit, you will be required to fill out patient information and patient history forms. For your convenience, we have provided these forms here for you to download, complete and bring with you to your visit to our office.

Urgent Care vs. ER?

A majority of patients receiving treatment at local emergency rooms do not have true medical emergencies. Our facilities offer convenient, walk-in care service to patients of all ages for a variety of minor injuries and illnesses, such as respiratory illnesses, cuts and lacerations, sprains and fractures, sore throats and ear and skin infections. Our facilities have board-certified physicians to take care of you, and we offer X-rays, laboratory tests and diagnostic testing just like local emergency rooms. You benefit from lower costs, less wait time and convenient billing… and for your follow-up care, you may return to see us or be seen by your regular primary care physician.

Urgent Care VS ER

Any accident or illness that may lead to loss of life or limb, serious medical complications or permanent disability should be evaluated in the emergency department of a local hospital.
