Due to the surge of Covid volume and the Omicron variant, we are unable to provide quality care through our telemedicine platform. That said, we regret to temporarily disable video visits until further notice.

While our urgent care generally accepts all walk-in patients, the current surge in COVID cases from Omicron has exhausted our system like every other medical institution. Our team is working tirelessly and sacrificing their own health and wellbeing to serve the community during these unprecedented times. We ask the community in return to be patient and gracious to our staff. Until patient volumes normalize, we have no option but to limit how many patients we see. We sincerely apologize for our short comings and assure you we are doing our best to accommodate as many patients as we physically can.

Every evening at 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun), our COVID testing schedule opens for the following day. If you are unable to find a COVID testing appointment for the day, we recommend you visit our website after 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun) to find a convenient time to schedule your COVID test for the following day.

When Would I Need an EKG?

Using Electrocardiograms to Monitor Your Heart Health

Keeping your heart healthy is one vital step in living a healthy and long life, and regular testing is one way to detect signs of cardiac concerns. An electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the simplest and fastest tests used to evaluate your heart. Keep reading to learn when you may need to undergo cardiac testing:

What is an ECG?

An ECG uses electrodes that are placed at certain spots on the chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes measure the natural electrical activity of your heart to show how fast your heart is beating, its rhythm, and how irregular your heart’s electrical activity is.

An ECG can be used to diagnose arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), heart attacks, and many other heart disorders. Your doctor may recommend an ECG test if you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Chest pain
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Difficulty exercising
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

If you have experienced these symptoms or have a family history of heart disease, an ECG may be an appropriate test for you. Our team at Urgentology Care can provide an ECG in-house at our urgent care center.
