A: Urgent Care treats patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care but is not usually serious enough to require a visit to an emergency room. Compass Urgent Care is a walk-in medical facility where you will be seen without an appointment. We are dedicated to providing you with high-quality medical care in situations when you need it the most. Our endeavor is to minimize wait times usually encountered in the ER.

You may be in for a long wait while more critical patients are treated, and the treatment could cost you more money. For minor illness or injury, that needs immediate medical attention, Compass Urgent Care is your better option. Click here to visit our Health and Urgent Care page for our service listing.
