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 differs from a typical primary care physician’s office in that it has procedure rooms for stitching lacerations and splinting bone fractures, a radiology department for X-ray services and other diagnostic imaging equipment, and a laboratory for on-site lab tests like quick strep tests, pregnancy tests, tetanus shots, cholesterol tests, and other blood work. We provide breathing treatments, high blood pressure stabilization, ear lavage, and IV therapy. We also complete DOT physicals and other examination services.
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.
We have two locations to serve you:
