Urgent care is a category of walk-in clinic focused on the delivery of ambulatory care in a dedicated medical facility outside of a traditional emergency department, Doctors MedCare offers these services at all 5 of our locations in North Alabama. Our urgent care centers primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, but not serious enough to require an emergency department visit.
