What is Urgent Care Medicine?
Our urgent care facility is open seven days a week with convenient daytime and evening hours for patients seeking immediate treatment for minor illnesses and injuries as well as a wide variety of diagnostic and screening services including basic lab and x-rays.
In our urgent care center, patients can be seen and treated, often in less than an hour, for injuries like minor lacerations, sprains, simple fractures, animal bites, sports injuries and other discomforts like sore throats, earaches, asthma attacks, migraines, urinary tract infections or the flu. You do not need an appointment to use Owl Now Urgent Care.
Most, if not all, of our services are offered at a dramatic savings to patients, employers, insurance companies and other healthcare consumers over the costs of hospital emergency departments or hospital-based "fast-track" services.
What's in an Urgent Care Center?
Our urgent care center also offers on-the-job injury services to surrounding businesses and industries, hotels, restaurants and office buildings. We provide a wide range of occupational medicine services, including pre-employment physicals, drug screens, and Workers' Comp Back-to-Work programs.
In short, we are ER professionals in a private setting. Although we can stabilize many illnesses, such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension and other diseases of aging, our urgent care facility is not designed to provide long-term management of them.

Owl now is the best! Just recently I had a stomach virus and was very nauseous, I went to them and they were able to help the nausea go away for the time being. They put me on a food plan that would be easy on my stomach and gave me a form that had all the information just in case I forgot! Such friendly staff also!
