Sports injuries most commonly happen on the weekends, so it makes sense that our urgent care center is open on Saturday and Sunday as well as throughout the week. Specifically, we’re open on the weekend from 10am to 6pm, so if you hurt yourself you don’t have to wait until the start of the work week to meet with a member of our staff. Additionally, no appointment is required to visit our urgent care center – we treat sports injuries when they happen so if you are in pain, don’t delay. In most cases, we’ll have you in and out the door in under an hour. We also have onsite digital X-ray capabilities to diagnose any broken bones. However, it does need to be said that we treat sports injuries that are not life or limb threatening. If you have suffered a severe injury, call 911 or head to the emergency room.
