Urgent care clinics provide treatment for sudden or unexpected illnesses and injuries that are beyond the scope of typical primary care practice but do not require emergency room services. Urgent care clinics also provide services to patients who may be temporarily unable to visit their primary care providers for medications, blood pressure monitoring, diabetes and other chronic conditions.
Appointments are not necessary to visit urgent care clinics. They have extended hours of operation that includes weekends and treat patients of all ages.
Bear Valley Urgent Care is such a clinic.
