Urgent Care and Walk-in Service

In response to today’s economic challenges and the need for affordable healthcare, Omega Medical Center has introduced Urgent Care services as of March 5, 2012. Designed to provide affordable, self-pay medical care, Omega Urgent Care is ideal for those with no medical insurance or those whose insurance plans have high deductibles — or simply those who don’t want to wait for an appointment with a busy primary care physician.

It’s also the right choice when an illness or injury should have immediate medical attention, yet is not serious enough to require hospital emergency services.

Emergency departments take the most serious cases first, and those with less severe problems are left to wait, often for hours, before being seen by a doctor. And because our services cost less than they would at a hospital, you’ll save money and time by choosing Omega.

Delivered by a full-time staff of physicians and licensed clinicians, our Urgent Care services also include low-cost x-ray, lab services and physical therapy on site.
