Patients with moderate to severe allergies can experience a flare-up in their symptoms at any time — and when they do, our staff is here to help. Urgentology Care is proud to announce its latest partnership with Cure Allergy Clinic (CAC), another trusted resource for integrated care for patients suffering from short-term or chronic allergy and asthma conditions. Through this service, you can receive a diagnosis for your allergies and asthma, and receive the appropriate treatment.
As a parent, there are few things that are more overwhelming than trying to help your child when they aren't feeling well. Oftentimes, we want to get our children treated immediately and back on the road to recovery as soon as possible. However, waiting for an appointment with their primary pediatrician can slow this process down significantly.
At Urgentology Care, our specialists are experienced in many common pediatric conditions and can offer quick and reliable care for your child. Common reasons that you may want to bring your child to our urgent care clinic include:
- Cuts, burns, bug bites and wounds
- Ear infections
- Sore throat
- Strep throat, the stomach flu, the common cold, the flu and bronchitis
- Asthma and allergy attacks
- Pink eye
- Diarrhea and nausea
- Sport and school physicals
Also, by keeping your child's shots up to date, you help prevent the spread of disease to yourself, the general public, and children who are unable to have immunizations. Most routine immunizations are covered by health insurance, as well, including state funds like Medicaid. Our specialists can administer the recommended immunizations for you and/or your child.
Diverse Care and Service Options
In our effort to provide convenience and efficiency during your visit we also offer our own in-house lab that covers most common tests. Our streamlined process allows us to quickly check you in, perform digital x-rays, e-prescriptions, and more. To offer the best service for each of our patients, we offer the following treatment options:
Annual, School and Sport Physicals
Whether required by your insurance company or mandated by your child’s school district, our staff is available for routine exams for your entire family.
Monitoring your health yearly can help detect changes in your health condition early and provide treatment. Your age and general health play heavily into the need for a physical, and the following individuals are advised to always see their doctor yearly:
- Patients who smoke.
- Women who are sexually active.
- Women who are at least 40 and have not had a mammogram.
- Patients over 50 years of age.
- Children who are going to school or participate in a sport.
- Those wishing to apply for a commercial driving license with the DOT.
- Patients with pre-existing conditions or a family history of a health condition.
- Patients who are prescribed medication to treat their medical condition.
- Patients who are overweight.
If you are under 30 years old and live a healthy lifestyle, you can get by without seeing your doctor for an annual checkup. However, this doesn’t mean you don’t need a physical ever again — you should still have a physical every two to three years.
A busy schedule or distance between a patient and their doctor can put a limit on access to the care they need. However, our telemedicine options help expand your access from the comfort of your own home. Using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, this health care option can be convenient for patients who do not have the time or ability to visit their doctor in person.

- Sinus or allergy issues
- Minor colds and the flu
- Sore throat & strep throat
- Skin irritations, rashes, and insect bites
- Urinary issues, including UTIs
- GI concerns, including constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, or nausea
