Urgent Clinic, Immediate Care
It can be difficult at times to schedule a visit to the doctor. It’s seems like getting an appointment can take weeks or even months. When your child has an ear infection or your spouse has lumbago, an urgent clinic like FastMed is a great alternative for immediate care – just type in your zip code to find a FastMed clinic near you. An urgent clinic should be convenient, affordable and available: We’re open 365 days per year, and walk-ins are always welcome.
Immediate care at an urgent clinic should not be confused with emergency care at a hospital. An urgent clinic treats non-life-threatening illnesses and minor injuries. A FastMed Urgent Clinic is the place to go if your team requires a sports physical, if you want a flu shot, or if you have a sinus infection – among other medical needs. When your situation or condition is severe and you think there is even a chance that your life is in jeopardy, dial 9-1-1 and immediately get to the hospital.
