Urgent Care Services

Urgent Medical Centers of America (UMCA) our sister company treats a variety of illnesses and injuries that can strike you or your family without warning. That includes anything from a fever, the flu, or a bee sting reaction, to muscle sprains, bumps and bruises, fractures and cuts. Whether these injuries happen in the home, at play or on the job, we can care for them.

Our Center is designed to provide convenient, fast treatment and services for most all ages, from teens to grandparents. Because we have lab and X-ray equipment, most illnesses and mishaps, can be handled on site. In most cases, you can get the treatment you need without going to a hospital emergency room.

Our physicians are qualified and experienced to treat your injuries and illnesses with the quality of care you expect. If you have a primary care physician at the time of your visit, we may advise that you follow up with your regular physician after receiving Urgent Medical care.

Insurance

Urgent Medical Centers of America accepts most insurance plans without a referral. If at all possible check with your insurance company before coming and have your “Urgent Care” benefits defined by a professional. Being familiar with your own insurance plan will help you get the most from your coverage benefits.
VISA, MasterCard, Discovery, and AmEx are always accepted. Under most plans, co-payments and deductibles are due at the time you receive service.
