TL;DR -When you need immediate medical attention for a minor illness or injury, but doesn’t necessarily warrant a trip to the emergency room, urgent care is a quick and easy way to get better faster. FastMed and CareSpot are here to offer affordable same-day care, with walk-ins welcome and hours to help suit your busy lifestyle, which makes getting better, easier.
Immediate care for everything from aches to X-rays
Urgent cares like FastMed and CareSpot are a great resource for everything from your aches and pains to getting a quick X-ray. We offer care for minor injuries and illnesses, with easily accessible care. Our centers are staffed by highly qualified licensed medical providers, who are equipped to handle a variety of medical issues.
Some common conditions that we can treat include:
Here when you need us the most
One of the biggest advantages of urgent cares like FastMed and CareSpot is flexibility. Unlike most primary care providers who are only available during regular business hours, we are open evenings and weekends, making it easier for you to get the care you need outside of typical office hours. This is especially helpful for those who work long hours or have busy schedules during the day.
Flexible payment options
Another benefit is that most insurance providers are accepted. This means that you can receive the medical care you need without having to worry about high out-of-pocket costs. For those without insurance or whose insurance may not cover certain services, self-pay options are available.
Urgent Care versus ER

It’s important to note that while urgent care centers can provide prompt medical attention for many conditions, they are not a substitute for emergency care. If you or a loved one is experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, or severe bleeding, call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
