Immediate Care for Your Urgent Health Needs
LifeLong Immediate/Urgent Care is your alternative to the Emergency Room for illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention (usually within 24 hours), but are not life-threatening or serious enough to require emergency room care or even hospitalization. We are committed to providing prompt, professional, and cost effective medical care to adult and pediatric patients. No appointments or referrals are needed.

Our team of experienced clinicians is ready to treat all types of non-life threatening medical conditions, including:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Sprains and strains
  • Back injuries
  • Breathing difficulties (i.e., mild to moderate asthma)
  • Eye irritation and redness
  • Fever or flu
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Severe sore throat or cough
  • Broken bones
  • Skin infections or rash
  • Urinary tract infections

X-ray and urine testing services available on-site.

We are happy to refer you back to your Primary Care Physician (PCP) for follow up care or connect you with a PCP if you do not currently have a provider.
