The Express Care Department is staffed with specially trained physicians, nurse practitioners and nurses. Express Care services are available for conditions that require same-day attention. While Express Care is appropriate for non-critical emergencies, the majority of your care should be delivered by your personal provider. You are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment before visiting Express Care as walk-in patients may face a longer wait based upon available time and seriousness of their problem. Express Care services are billed and recognized by insurance carriers as standard clinic visits.
