Available to all patients over 2 years of age, patients at Health First QuickCare are treated by Licensed Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. We provide same-day care for cases not needing emergency treatment. Our patients typically seek our care for colds and flu, sore throats, ear aches, nausea, minor sprains and strains, X-ray services for extremity injuries, urinary tract infections, upper-respiratory and sinus issues, vaccinations and immunizations, annual physicals, and school and sports Physicals.
Designed to be a true walk-in clinic, Health First QuickCare can be utilized for minor illnesses and injuries, and our evening and weekend hours are convenient when traditional doctor offices are closed. Patients are expected to check back with their primary care physicians for ongoing medical issues and longer-term follow-up care. We treat patients 2 years of age and older. If you feel that you have a more serious condition, please dial 911 or visit your closest Emergency Room.
Our prices are competitive and significantly lower than a trip to the Emergency Room. Check out our price sheet and compare.
For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards. All payments are due at the time of service.
