Urgent care is for non-emergency medical issues that need immediate attention. Urgent care is also typically a lower-cost alternative to the emergency room, with shorter wait times and a calmer setting to treat issues such as:
- Colds, cough, sore throat, fever and flu symptoms
- Work-related injuries
- Ear or sinus pain
- Scrapes or lacerations
- Urinary discomfort or symptoms
- Minor burns
- Pediatric illness and asthma
- Sprains, strains, minor bruises and possible fractures
Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis (no appointments). Lab services are available onsite at all locations; x-ray service is also onsite in Bellingham and Lynden.
Non-urgent appointments, such as sports physicals, CDL certification, and vaccinations, must be scheduled with your regular doctor.
