I cut my finger, bleeding all over and I didn't know what to expect when I arrived. The nurse rushed out to bandage my wound and took me to the back immediately. I then waiting about 5 minutes before the Dr. showed to stich my finger. I was very happy and pleased with the whole experience!!

Dr Merritt and Greg, PA are WONDERFUL. The MA'S and lab tech have always been nice and professional. The lab tech is great at his blood draws. The front desk staff could be a bit more friendly, but nothing I ever needed to make a complaint about.

I've seen PA Nekooi and Dr. Merritt and they are GREAT! However their support staff in the referral office are very poor. The front desk personnel aren't particularly friendly. The appointment desk is great and so is the tech who draws blood.

Tips & Advices
Under most health insurance plans, urgent care visits will require a copay that is usually less expensive than emergency room visits, but more expensive than standard doctor visits - around $120 on average. Urgent care staff do not have much information regarding individual coverage, so be prepared and check with your insurance provider to understand costs.
It is common for urgent care physicians to recommend follow-up treatment after an initial visit. Most commonly, patients will be asked to return to the clinic or their primary care doctor if symptoms get worse or do not improve in a certain amount of time. Patients might be referred to a specialist for treatment of more complex conditions. Or patients may simply be given a few basic tips for recovering at home. In any case, patients should follow the doctor’s advice regarding next treatment steps.
If needed, urgent care doctors can prescribe medication to treat conditions. This may include antibiotics for an infection or pain medication for a broken bone. Be sure to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking these medicines.
Be sure to explain your symptoms to physicians in as much detail as possible. Note when or where the symptoms first appeared if possible. Inform urgent care staff of any medical conditions you may have, all allergies, and all medications you are currently taking. Also be sure to bring proper forms of identification, and any health insurance cards/information to help process your visit.
You should be able to find a 24-hour urgent care clinic by searching online resources such as yellowpages.com. Be sure the location is included in your health plan network before visiting.
