Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is "Velocity Urgent Care"?
Velocity Urgent CareSM provides on-demand treatment for illness and injury that requires immediate medical attention but that is not a medical emergency. Our board-certified providers also offer physicals, vaccinations, x-rays, and basic lab tests. Urgent care is not a replacement for your primary care physician in managing overall wellness, but rather, is available when you can’t wait for an appointment. Most patients are in- and out within 45 to 60 minutes, at about 1/7th the cost of using a hospital emergency room. Our convenient neighborhood locations are open 7-days a week and no appointment is ever needed…you can reserve your spot online at http://velocityuc.spinmodern.co/locations/.
