Urgent care facilities offer patients the ability to address medical concerns and accidental injuries that can span a variety of conditions. For many area hospitals, the ER has become increasingly crowded for this type of care, and general practitioners are not always on call outside of regular office hours. In this way the Briggs Chaney Walk-In Clinic can provide services for minor needs and even some major traumas.

Our clinical staff is well experienced to handle nearly any medical condition, and we are certified as an urgent care facility, which offer the assurance of quality care and patient-centric best practices. This means that all of our patients are attended to without long wait times, and we are able to accept most insurance providers without the concern of the higher co-pays that are frequently found in hospitals.

Since our facility is open seven days a week, we can also attend to issues at any time, which lets our patients seek the necessary care they need without concerns with personal schedules. Whether a medical emergency comes about suddenly, or whether there are concerns about a lingering infection, our facility is equipped to address the problem.

Many symptoms that patients can be experiencing may be indicative of the need for proper treatment, and seeking urgent care through Briggs Chaney Walk-In Clinic allows patients to gain a proper diagnosis as well as proper treatment.

Some of the presenting symptoms that may be of concern can include:

  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Sore throat or the possibility of Strep or Mono
  • Cold and flu symptoms, including coughs and high fevers
  • Ear infections
  • Allergic reactions, either external or internal
  • Rashes
