Skip the Emergency Room, Visit Us in Arlington & Lexington, MA

There are several key differences between urgent care clinics and emergency rooms. While we consider ourselves an alternative to the emergency room, we cannot provide all the services an emergency room does. Likewise, an emergency room cannot offer all the conveniences we do.

Urgent Care Qualities:

  • Laid-back setting – low stress
  • Can be used for day-to-day services
    • Administer flu shots
    • Provide check-ups/routine physicals
  • Affordable – lower copay
    • Offer inexpensive self-pay options (for uninsured persons)
  • Occupational health resource

Emergency Room Qualities

  • 24/7 service
  • Lengthy wait times
  • High stress atmosphere
  • Can perform surgery
  • Provide care for life-threatening injuries/illnesses
