Urgent Care in Arkansas

Urgent care clinics help patients with minor, non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. These clinics ease the congestion in Arkansas emergency rooms, where it's not uncommon for patients to sit for hours in pain waiting to see a doctor for complaints as simple as kidney stones.

Urgent care clinics can also treat patients on evenings and weekends, when primary care physicians in the state are closed. This is very attractive to Arkansas residents who work full-time or have other commitments that prevent them seeing a doctor during business hours. While Arkansas doctors were initially worried the clinics may attempt to poach their patients, many are now referring their customers to the new medical centers.

Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services

    My visit was on Saturday Nov. 16 in the after noon. The facility was very clean and well laid out, and was child friendly with a parcial room for children to play or was TV, and the staff very friendly. For a new out patient clinic staff made me feel I was important. The nurse practitioner was very efficent when diagnosing my problem was clear that if I did not show signs of improvement that I should call them or come back to the clinic. I was surely be using this clinic for after hours rather than having to go all the way to Fayetteville VA Urgent care.
