Urgent Care FAQs

  • image/svg+xml image/svg+xml

    How much will an urgent care visit in El Cajon cost?

    The price charged at an urgent care, whether in El Cajon or elsewhere, will be based on the location, and there are no actual standard costs between the clinics. Assuming you are paying with cash, you might come across an urgent clinic that charges you $50 while another situated some mile away charges you $100 for the same services. The standard cost in urgent care where insurance cover is not involved ranges from $100 to $125. This price is generally the standard price of a visit before extra services. There are a couple of additional care services that could make your appointment to an urgent care costly including x-rays and lab tests, medications and injections (such as immunization), casting broken bones, as well as stitches and splints. If you have a viable insurance plan in place, the standard pay will be between $20 – 50 depending on your insurance coverage and whether you are in contact with the provider.

    What is urgent care?

    Urgent care are available to assist patients that are looking for immediate, convenient medical care. In that manner, they are similar to an emergency room. The difference, however, is that ERs are meant to treat major, life-threatening injuries and illnesses while urgent care centers manage life’s minor bruises and bumps. In simple terms, an urgent care is seen as a walk-in health center that focuses in offering non-emergent health care conditions, including the treatment of the typical illnesses and injuries such as fractures and sprains, cuts and burns, scrapes, stings and bites, flu and cold symptoms, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, and much more. Most urgent care facilities offer both diagnostic and preventive care such as well visits, immunizations, STD testing and annual physicals. For regular visits and check-ups on these clinics, you should expect to pay between $20 and $100. The good thing is that most urgent care clinics will accept major PPOs and insurance cover, Medicare, as well as self-pay in the form of credit cards or cash. Urgent care clinics are located in most parts of the country in various regions to offset emergency room visits and provide a gap in healthcare services. They take patients during all hours of operations, which offer a significant convenience to most people who have and continue to undergo the need for sudden and immediate medical attention.

Urgent Care reviews for El Cajon

"All I can say is wow! Simple and straightforward. The doctor took time with me, listened to what was wrong, and asked relevant questions. He was pretty great and nice too. Up to date knowledge of medications and what i needed. My meds were sent to a local pharmacy for me. And best of all I didn’t have to go inside ‘COVID soup’ at an urgent care. It was great care and convenient too. Great way to start off 2021 if you have need if medical care!"

"My son has been sick for over a week. We took him to a different urgent care twice and had no results, we’re just told it was a virus and to wait it out. When we arrived at Physicians the wait was under 5 minutes. The nurses and doctors were absolutely outstanding and we had the results and actual diagnosis within 15 minutes. My kiddo will finally be getting some relief. We cannot thank everyone at Physicians enough! Thank you thank you thank you!"

"I booked an appointment and was in within 30 minutes. The Receptionist, the Nurse and Doctor Jane was very Friendly and Professional. I was very impressed and they treated me Very. Well. I was in and out of the office and it took 20 minutes. We used another area care facility and they were adequate, but after the Ascension Urgent Care opened in Donelson my family has been to this location twice and they have Hands Down been the Best helping us with our medical situations. This is our New Go To Place."

"I am giving 5 stars only because the nurse was amazing that did the COVID test. She was so sweet and patient with my little one. The woman at the front desk was very cold, I could barely hear her then seemed to get aggravated when I asked her to repeat herself. I absolutely love this urgent care and never received that type of treatment before."

"I arrived as a "walk in" for a COVID-19 test. The sign on the door said to call their number and wait outside. I followed all instructions, that were very simple, and was on my way home in less than 15 minutes. Friendly, fast and efficient. The whole experience could not have gone better. I highly recommend NextCare Urgent Care."

"Made my appointment online arrived on time finished my paperwork in my car went in checked in and they called my name in less than ten minutes. The nurse asked the questions she needed. She gave me an eye exam and the doctor came in and I was out of there in no time. Completely impressed with everyone and everything at the Lynn Urgent Care. Hopefully I won’t need to go there anytime soon but if I get sick that’s where I’ll be going."

"I came to the urgent care for stitches, I had to wait in my car while I was being registered. I was contacted via text to come in to go into a room, the nurse came in and took my vitals right away and the doctor shortly after he stitched my finger up and I was on my way in no time. Excellent customer service"

"Amazing staff presence and demeanor every time I’ve come here. I’m happy to make the one hour drive from San Mateo because of the comforting and calm atmosphere that this clinic provides compared to the chaotic clinics that are closer to SF. 1000% recommend their services in every way. Likely the most enjoyable clinic experience I’ve had in my life. Each and every staff member has an incredibly sweet and kind personality, making you feel completely at ease. Thank you for everything Benicia Urgent Care!"

"This was the best urgent care experience I've ever had. I loved that I could book online ahead and come in with no wait time. The receptionist, nurses, and doctor listened, were friendly, and extremely thorough in my care. We are new to the area and were extremely overwhelmed with the care options available, and I'm glad we went with Indigo. I feel like they truly cared about my specific situation and did all they could to help."

"My husband and I went for a COVID test and there was practically no wait (have to make an appointment). The doctor/nurse who administered the test was the absolute sweetest. He made you feel comfortable and got you in and out. They gave me call in 30 minutes with the results. They're quick kind and courteous. Bravo to the men and women at Westar Urgent Care Westerville!!!"

"I went in for a strep and COVID test and they were incredibly quick and kind. There was no wait when I used Solv to pre-book a time, and the test results were rapid. This is the first urgent care clinic that I’ve been to that has really listened to me. They prescribed antibiotics without doing a culture for strep (I have a history of negative rapid strep tests but positive cultures and it sucks having to be miserable to 2-5 more days to find out I do in fact have strep). Overall they really paid attention to me and my concerns. I didn’t even know this clinic existed but now that I do that’s where I’ll go for all of my urgent care needs!"

"I used Solv 2 times already to make appointment for COVID-19 Rapid Test as my employer wanted 2 negative test results because of possible exposure . My visit first was an evening appointment, second was early morning ! Less wait for morning appointments , I was in and out in less then 30 min .Staff at LI Urgent care absolutely the best . Actually this was my 4th visit since 2016 ."
