Honestly, most attentive and easy urgent care experience I’ve ever had! And this is coming from someone who had to go into UC two or three or four times a year for asthma. Great job over there everyone!!

I am always happy with my experience at MD Today Urgent Care. Even though we had a long wait due to the amount of illness at the moment, we were taking in and my daughter, 15 years old, was listen to incredibly intently by the physician who took care of her. The doctor took a lot of time to listen to her and gave her a lot of ideas about how she could best help her. It was certainly worth the wait.

The only thing I didn't like was that they tried to get blood from me twice before they finally got it the third time. They also sent me to the ER for a follow-up test they couldn't do in their office. They told me it was a quick test and they would send over their test results to the ER so it would go faster. I spent over four hours in the ER and they redid all of the tests that Urgent Care did because they are "different systems". Why wasn't I told that? Now I have to pay multiple times for the same tests on the same day! 😒

Outstanding experience. Needed a college sport physical with specifically an MD to sign off. I booked the appointment online. Super easy. Paperwork was completed electronically sent to out email. Got us in the next day. Front desk was friendly and helpful. They were busy but very efficient. The MD doctor was friendly. I waited outside while our son had his exam. They were doing COVID testing in the parking lot so the patients could stay in their car. The nurse was efficient and had a great system with her cart going from car to car and so you didn’t need to get out of your car fir COVID testing. Thanks for the great service. Highly recommend. Would def use again...!

Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much will an urgent care visit in San Diego cost?

    The price charged at an urgent care, whether in San Diego 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.

  • Are San Diego urgent care centers open after hours?

    Most primary care doctor offices are open during routine work hours, Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Conversely, most of the urgent care centers in San Diego are available after hours, on weekends, and many holidays. Typical urgent care hours are 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily, although location-specific hours may vary. 

  • Do urgent care centers in San Diego take appointments?

    Historically, urgent care centers were strictly an on-demand, walk-in healthcare service mode. More recently, as consumer behaviors and expectations have evolved, many urgent care clinics have begun offering book ahead visits, allowing consumers to select a same-day or next-day time that works best for their schedule. Use Solv to find a San Diego urgent care center that offers advanced bookings (or appointments) and book online.

  • How do I book an appointment online with an urgent care in San Diego?

    Solv allows San Diego residents and visitors to book urgent care visits online with just a few taps. Same-day and next-day visit times are generally available, and you can search for real-time availability clinics.

  • How can I find an urgent care in San Diego who takes my insurance?

    Solv allows you to find any of the urgent care and walk-in clinics in San Diego, many of which accept most major commercial insurances. Just browse the clinics page to see if your carrier and plan is listed. If you are still unsure, it is best to contact the urgent care center directly for clarification.

  • Do San Diego urgent care centers offer virtual visits or telemedicine?

    Many urgent care centers, including those in San Diego, now offer virtual visits or telemedicine for residents and visitors throughout the state. Virtual urgent care visits are generally booked online whether in advance or on-demand. Clinics that do offer virtual care have a video icon on their profiles.

  • What is the best urgent care center in San Diego?

    While it would be easy to provide a list of urgent care centers in and around San Diego, 'best' is a challenging term to qualify. For some consumers, that could mean the closest location whereas other people may prioritize patient reviews, service costs, availability, or whether or not the provider accepts their insurance. With the list of locations above, use the filters provided to narrow the results to find the best urgent care for your needs.

  • 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.

This is my third time here. You need to be patient with everyone- our health care heroes are on the front line. I am so grateful MD Today Urgent Care is in our community for quick help when needed. The Doctor, support staff, and office were all helpful, kind, and professional. Again, during these times of COVID- you are heroes- and thank you more that words. You are appreciated! - Scripps Ranch Resident and Grateful Customer

Everybody in the office was fantastic. Wait time is very short the nurses were wonderful, and the doctor was fantastic. I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful urgent care so close to home in times of crisis. Thank you for the wonderful care!

I have never been to an urgent care where you were taken care of so promptly. I was in and out in less than a half an hour after getting x-rays and everything. My new patient paperwork took longer than everything else, But that’s because I only had one hand to fill it out Because of my injury. the staff are extremely friendly and kind. It was a great experience. I would recommend to anyone in the area.

- Verified patient on 11/12

Thank you to the staff , I receive a super outstanding attention. Specially in this times of the state it's going through the PANDEMIA. I thank every member of the urgent Care around the USA. We continue being healthy because of your great dedication to us 🤜🤛♥️

My virtual appointment was so convenient to avoid exposing myself to other illnesses. All staff was VERY kind via video chat, from start to finish, and able to provide me with the inhaler prescription I needed! AFC Urgent Care has the best patient care and easy to navigate website. Thank you!

- Verified patient on 5/30

I would give 5 stars for quality of care but I noticed my respirations were noted as 14, and my chief complaint was flu like symptoms. I could barely talk without getting SOB. My respirations were definitely in the 20's. Overall I'd still recommend MD Today Urgent Care, and go to them for care if needed.

After booking the wrong kind of appointment for a Covid test I had to reschedule for 4 days from now. They told me they would put me on a cancellation list, we all know what that means…not much. Wrong. I received a call back within 30 minutes that they had a cancellation. The staff is on it and all about helping the patients. Thank you so much MD Urgent Care!!!

I am always happy with my experience at MD Today Urgent Care. Even though we had a long wait due to the amount of illness at the moment, we were taking in and my daughter, 15 years old, was listen to incredibly intently by the physician who took care of her. The doctor took a lot of time to listen to her and gave her a lot of ideas about how she could best help her. It was certainly worth the wait.

The covid care process is simple and effective. Had a quick video call to assess the present situation and need for testing, then drive over to deposit nasal swab from the safety of your vehicle. Entry in the urgent care facility is not required.

I almost was going to drive all the way to LJ and remembered the XIMED urgent care I had seen - located at Scripps Poway Pky. All the employees were cheerful and helpful. The PA was very knowledgeable and thorough and took the time to really explain his treatment plan.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at this urgent care facility. The area was very clean, the staff were gracious, the doctor was knowledgeable and friendly, and I was treated with respect. Overall, a great place to visit if your regular P.C. isn't an option. Thank you!

NP Sramek and nurse Trey or Tye were fabulous. Both spent lots of time with us and their bedside manner was wonderful. This was our first time at urgent care and it was so easy. Both providers stayed past closing time to answer all our questions and run tests

This is the 4th time I have used MDToday- twice for urgent care appointments and twice for Covid tests. Staff were always very professional and knowledgeable. Today’s appointment with Michelle was thorough, caring and professional. Jonathan, who administered the test curbside, was also very professional and gave me clear directions and had a positive attitude. I’ll continue to use this office for care in the future.

We highly recommend MD Today Urgent Care and find it to be an asset to our community. We have 3 kids and have been there for all sorts of silly unfortunate issues. Always have left feeling better and an emergency room visit unnecessary. Give them a call and ask if they can help.

The two front desk girls are probably some of the nicest people I have met at an urgent care/doctors office. Everyone was great I would definitely go back. Check in was easy and quick. I called to see if they accepted my little sisters insurance and they were really patient with me. Wait time was pretty long but there were people before us that’s why. 12/10 stars.

Very customer oriented: friendly and professional. The fact that I could actually talk to a human being on the phone is why I went there to begin with. Best urgent care I have ever been to.

Staff was fast and friendly. Heard what I had to say and recommended a course of treatment. I usually have to go to the VA Hospital for treatment, but they accept VA Healthcare so I don’t have to make the long drive. I will definitely come back here if I need an urgent care in the future.

In order to travel to Canada, I needed to get a (molecular) Covid test. It's a bit tricky because you need to get a negative test result within 72 hours of departure, but you also need the results quickly so that you can log into Canada's system. I searched several test providers but most didn't have availability this past Saturday afternoon. I was able to make an appointment at MD Today Urgent Care for 6:00 PM and it could not have gone smoother or any easier. I appreciated being called prior to the appointment time to clarify which test was most appropriate. They let you self-swab which is always more comfortable. Within 20 minutes of being tested, I was called again with the result - followed by an email. I strongly recommend MD Today Urgent Care. They are located a bit East of I-5 and North of Hwy 56 - just North of San Diego.

Very easy process - filled in forms online, spoke with PA remotely, then drive up to the office for the Covid test. Kristin came out to my car and couldn’t have been more nice. She explained everything to me and guided me through it. Would gladly recommend MD Today Urgent Care.

About Urgent Care

Urgent care is San Diego's best option for quality medical care when you need it, offering walk-in appointments during extended hours and on weekends. Solv even has clinic partners in the San Diego-area that offer online scheduling, allowing you to book a visit convenient to your schedule and skip the wait.

Walk-in clinics provide a convenient, fast alternative to emergency rooms—even primary care providers—treating minor injuries and illnesses including strep throat, infections, cold and flu symptoms, allergies, rashes, burns, bites, and more. Additionally, most offer preventative care including annual well exams, lab testing, and vaccinations.

When you’re in need of medical care for a non-life threatening condition, trust the urgent care providers nearby. And whenever possible, make it easier by scheduling and managing your visit with Solv.

Urgent Care Guide

In a recent survey conducted with the Urgent Care Association, Solv found that patients were waiting an average of 24 days for appointments with their primary care provider. In a world of instant gratification, consumers demand more. They demand now. If you want to watch a movie, you download it in minutes or stream it instantly. If you need groceries, you can pick up your phone and have them delivered to you within the hour. If you need restaurant reservations, you find one with availability, book online, walk in minutes later and sit right down. Healthcare shouldn’t be any different.

That’s why urgent care has been growing at a faster pace than any other healthcare service in the United States. And it is why healthcare consumers search for “urgent care” more than 5x more than “primary care” or “family doctor,” combined. These consumers are highly actionable, searching with high intent terms like “urgent care near me.” They want same day access to quality healthcare providers when they are sick or injured - after hours, one weekends and on holidays - without the cost and inconvenience of the emergency room.

Urgent care centers typically treat minor illnesses like the flu, sinus infections and strep throat, as well as injuries like bone fractures and sprains, cuts, scrapes and burns, making these clinics ideal for diagnosing and treating non-emergent healthcare needs. And at a growing rate urgent care clinics are offering preventative care services including annual physicals and well visits, flu shots and other immunizations and vaccines, taking on the role of primary care provider for the tens of millions of consumers that don’t have one.

For kids there are special pediatric urgent care centers, usually open after hours for patients between the ages of 1 and 18.

Urgent Care Services & Pricing

Urgent care centers, which are part of the walk-in clinic healthcare category, are a convenient resource for consumers needing treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. Services that you would normally receive at your primary care office are usually available at an urgent care including annual and school physicals, flu shots and immunizations, treatment for illnesses including colds, flu stomach pains, sinus and ear infections and more. You can also be seen for injuries such as burns, bites, sprains and breaks - things that you might first thing to go to the emergency room vs urgent care, but you’ll have a shorter wait and smaller bill at the urgent care. As for cost, without insurance, you should expect between $100-140 for your visit, plus the cost of any labs, tests or images. With insurance, urgent care will be similar to seeing a specialist with applicable co-pay.

Insurance & Payments

Nearly all urgent care centers take commercial insurance and many (if not most) will take medicare. As such if you have insurance coverage, you can expect the financial experience to be similar to visiting a specialist where you have a co-pay, usually $35-50, due at the time of the visit. Any additional lab work, x-rays or other tests performed will be billed against your insurance first and any supplemental balance due will be invoiced to you after the fact. Without insurance, you’ll pay a visit fee between $100-140 at the time of your visit. This is typically 25-50% more than your primary care provider, but usually the convenience is well worth the additional cost. If you are interested in a telehealth or video visit, your cost could be as much as 50% less than an urgent care, you could be diagnosed and prescribed medication and you’ll never have to leave your home.

    Urgent Care Hours & Wait Times

    Every urgent care center - even those part of the same group or brand - may have different hours. While they are meant to be conveniently accessible during times when your primary care provider is not, that’s subjective and highly variable. A traditional formula, however, is that an urgent care is open 6 to 7 days a week usually between the hours of 8 am to 8 pm. That could shift to nearly any 8-12 hour period between 7 am and 10 pm. You’ll even find some clinics open 24 hours a day, similar to an emergency room. As for wait time, most patients report waiting between 15-45 minutes on average, but that can certainly vary, as well. It’s usually best to find an urgent care near you to either confirm the hours online, or call the clinic directly to verify. Or, you can book a same day doctor appointment online with Solv.
