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.
