Effingham Express Care is a full-service urgent care center that has robust diagnostic capabilities that help us deliver the best possible treatment to our patients. We handle a number of different lab tests in-house and also have digital X-ray capabilities that allow us to best serve our patients. Once we’ve pinpointed the patient’s problem, our medical team can either offer treatment or develop a custom treatment plan for the patient to follow at home.

It’s all about making the entire process as painless as possible.

  • Monday through Friday from 9am to 7pm
  • Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm

We also never require a prior appointment to see our team. We know that injuries and illnesses happen all the time, and we want to be sure that area residents have an urgent care center nearby that can provide top notch care beyond standard business hours. With that said, for patients who know when, exactly, they’re going to visit us, we invite them to use the ZipPASS system and secure their spot in line.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place: from the staff, the cleanliness, the professional attitudes, the no-wait time, the kind and caring Dr. Toofan, to the sticker on the way out... excellent! Very impressed.

Love love this place!! I have been taking my daughter here when she is sick since she was 3 months old! They give me what I need and if you don't need it they don't! I trust them very much! This place is a lot more money then other places in regards to my insurance coverage, but you can't buy trust!

I can't give enough stars to this AMAZING place! We got in and out within 30 minutes. Staff was so polite and nice. Dr. Beth was great with my little one. Not only was our experience in the facility a great one, but Dr. Beth personally called me the next day to check on my Baby. That meant a lot to me. I have a hard time trusting Drs that aren't our regular one, but I definitely will be revisiting here if ever needed.

I just left here and although I'm sick with BRONCHITIS my soul was happy to have Dr. Toofan, Paul MD as my provider today. He was very attentive and friendly. The staff was also amazingly friendly. The facility is absolutely gorgeous for an express care clinic!!!

My little one was sick, whilst we were out of town on a Sunday. I had seen this Urgent Care from the interstate & decided to see if they were open. They were & even opened the door a few min. early to let us in. The office was clean, & the staff was very kind & courteous. Dr. Toofan was great with my daughter (he has kids) & got us in and out very quickly. They had her RX available there, if we didn't want to go to a pharmacy. Having just received a call (just over 24 hours from the initial visit) from the Dr. (not from the receptionist or even a nurse) to see how things were going, I felt that a review was definitely deserved. This is exactly what an Urgent Care should be!

I prefer Taylorville Urgent Care over the ER. You are greeted the second you come through the door and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes, if that to be seen. The staff is very friendly, well experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. They are very thorough in their workup and treatment of your health issue. Further, medial supplies, if needed, are provided for your injuries that the hospital will not provide. The staff seems to be genuinely concerned about providing the best care possible. I consider this service to be state of the art. I'm extremely happy they are here. This care facility is definitely an asset to Taylorville.
