At Effingham Express Care, we offer a variety of urgent care services to residents of St. Elmo, Illinois, and the adjoining area. The advantage to our state-of-the-art clinic is that it is equipped to provide patients with a variety of health services without the need for a prior appointment. Rather than struggling to find time to meet with your family physician or heading to the emergency room in a non-emergency situation, simply stop by our urgent care center and meet with a medical professional who can help. Whether you can’t seem to shake off a head cold, cut your hand while preparing dinner, or need an annual flu shot, we can help.
Urgent care is a medical specialty dedicated to providing patients with rapid care for their non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. For the convenience of our patients in St. Elmo, we maintain extended business hours seven days a week, which allows us to accommodate their busy schedules. If you wake up on a weekend feeling awful, you can have great peace of mind in knowing that you can meet with a professional who will be able to diagnose your condition and recommend a treatment plan immediately. Or, if you know you don’t feel quite right but don’t have time to skip work or school in the middle of a week, you can stop by our clinic on your way home and make sure that you aren’t contagious.
Our extended hours are particularly convenient for patients who need something like an annual physical or flu shot but don’t want to deal with the hassle of scheduling an appointment. Plus, if you injure yourself, you can swing by our office, get the treatment you need, and go about your business in a fraction of the time you’d likely spend in the ER.

I have been in here several times as my family doctor is located in Springfield. I have always had an excellent experience. Highly recommend.
Excellent service! Will go again, if needed of course!
Friendly staff who really care about your health.
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!!!
Very friendly, fast and thorough!! Thank you very much!
Every experience my family has had at Taylorville Urgent Care has been great. Friendly and professional. Quick responses and I think the follow up is wonderful. So pleased to have this resource in our town. Thank you especially to Angie A!
Fast and friendly, the NP was awesome, highly recommend this place! Dr. Toofan is awesome! It was nice to see a doctor that is involved with his office! Excellent Care!
Very friendly staff!! The doctor was wonderful!! Completely satisfied with our experience!! In and out in no time!! I believe this was the easiest and best trip for care we have experienced!! I think everyone in Taylorville should check this place out when they need care!! You won't be sorry!! I hope you advertise what can be done here a lot more so we keep this wonderful facility in Taylorville!!!!
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.
Thank you Bethany for your help today! The options of getting prescriptions filled there was definitely cheaper on me. The staff was all great as well this was my first visit.
