Latest Urgent Care updates

Jun 15, 2022
Americans aged 50 and older are feeling the pressure of healthcare costs, with 4 in 10 concerned about their ability to pay for care and others forgoing treatment altogether, skipping prescriptions or cutting back on daily living expenses to afford healthcare. (Becker's)
Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)

Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much will an urgent care visit in Jacksonville cost?

    The price charged at an urgent care, whether in Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville urgent care center that offers advanced bookings (or appointments) and book online.

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

    Solv allows Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville who takes my insurance?

    Solv allows you to find any of the urgent care and walk-in clinics in Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville urgent care centers offer virtual visits or telemedicine?

    Many urgent care centers, including those in Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville?

    While it would be easy to provide a list of urgent care centers in and around Jacksonville, '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.

Recent Urgent Care Reviews (20)

I am always impressed by the efficiency, professionalism and quality of care I receive here. Plus everyone is so friendly and helpful. I have an urgent care type center much closer to my home but I choose to drive past it to go to Crucial Care. Bridget was extremely helpful and even recommended a therapy i could do myself at home that was so helpful. Thank you Bridget!❤

- Verified patient on 9/24

This is the 3rd time I have been to this urgent care and the care just keeps getting better. Everyone from the time I checked in until the time I left provided exceptional care. The front desk staff was kind and professional, the X-ray technician was super nice and took excellent care of me. The nurse who triaged me was exceptional and the nurse practitioner was awesome with his level of care. Sucks feeling bad but these folks did the very best they could to make the situation as pleasant as possible.

- Verified patient on 12/3

I have used many other urgent care’s in my local area over the years and refuse to go back to any one of them. I am a critical care nurse I was referred by a nurse and my experience was wonderful. Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional but in a very warm caring way. I will continue to use this facility and refer everyone I know there. The Nurse Practitioner Mary was phenomenal! I would love to have her as a primary. As a nurse I am more critical of healthcare providers and this clinic exceeded all my expectations and I was so very pleasantly surprised. We all know the turn health care has taken secondary to insurance companies interference and manipulation of the system but some how this clinic provides 5 star service and actually care about the patient. The women at the reception desk were so patient walking me thru the sign in registration and the kindness continued with every person I came in contact with during my appointment. I can’t recommend them highly enough. That is where I will go, where I will send my husband, son and anyone I care for.

- Verified patient on 11/18

Came here for a foot fracture on a Saturday. I’m a physician and knew I would get care from well trained ER physicians here whereas most urgent care centers are staffed by PAs or nurse practitioners with varying degrees of training/experience and have had many suboptimal experiences with physician extenders in the past. I received efficient, high quality care including radiology services. My wife had seen Dr Consentino previously and she was great as was the nurse Devin who checked me in and multiple other staff members (radiology tech, different nurse who checked me out, waiting room staff). I love the billing transparency (they gave me an accurate estimate by phone when I called beforehand to ensure they had radiology services) and there’s basically a “menu” with prices out front and outlines what services are included. Very clean. The broken American health care system would be much better if all facilities operated like this.

Bridgette was amazing. Very patience and kind. She answered every questions we had. We didn't feel rushed at all. Sheila, Riley, Christian, Cassandra, Susan, Heather, and LaDonna were all so awesome! Thank you everyone. Best urgent care out there.

- Verified patient on 3/15

Very Nice place from the front desk to the exam room, all the staff and doctors were Very nice and although I had to wait a bit, that was only due to waiting on test results. They made sure I was comfortable and checked on me often. I would reccomend this place to anyone in need of urgent care as they have all the equipment for imaging and an in house lab.

- Verified patient on 12/9

I have only had to use this facility maybe 4 times since moving here 14yrars ago. Thank goodness I wasn't sick very often and you could call your family doctor to get an appointment. Well those days are gone. I was scheduled to go to yulee late afternoon for my covid vaccine but had had a terrible headache, diarrhea, but no fever. Kept calling the Millennium group to ask if I could still get my vaccine and I didn't hear back until after my time for shot. When they finally called back they said to go to urgent care on 8th street so I called and got an appointment for 5:15 which was marvelous. It was just like I remembered, wonderful doctor, extremely clean. And front office girls were extremely friendly. I missed out on getting my vaccine but I got tested for covid and it was negative thank goodness. I will definitely return to this facility.

- Verified patient on 1/26

Great place for Urgent care treatment. Staff was friendly and helpful. They X-rayed and confirmed a broken foot. Sent me home with crutches and a follow up call from an orthopedic surgeon. Very convenient and close to home. I highly recommend this place verses an emergency room.

- Verified patient on 7/18

GuideWell is a new urgent care facility in the area, but make no mistake they are on a different level than any other urgent care I’ve been to before. They far exceeded my expectations. From the cleanliness of the facility to the check in process, to the large board on the lobby with a list of prices for different services ( which they provide an extensive list of services and testing) to the wait time to receive medical care it was just easy and not frustrating. The entire staff is very professional and friendly. Everyone introduced themselves by their name and the nurses and PCCs that took care of me were simply awesome. Everything was explained in detail and they checked on me regularly. Their bedside manner is such a welcome change from many places these days. Dr. Tulsiak was very patient, caring and compassionate. Thank you to all that helped in my care from the girls at the front desk to the Radiologist to Stephanie, Charla, Wayne, and Josh. If I have a need to receive medical care in the future I will definitely come back to GuideWell vs a busy hospital ER.

I’m from out of town and needed to be seen. I searched for an Urgent Care based on previous reviews. I walked in and I knew I was in good hands. If you need care I highly, highly recommend Crucial Care.

- Verified patient on 1/15

Hands down best urgent care in town. Not only does the attending nurse and physician care so does the entire staff. They come by checking in on you during the visit and two other staff on our way out told my daughter they hope she felt better. We always choose crucial care unless they are closed .

- Verified patient on 12/21

Crucial Care is my go-to for urgent care needs. The staff is friendly, professional, and thorough. The facility is clean and well-equipped.

- Verified patient on 11/20

I’ve been here twice this year and both times I’ve been seen quickly (within fifteen minutes). For urgent care this is exceptional. The staff is always warm, concerned and professional.

- Verified patient on 2/26

This was the absolute best urgent care visit ever! All of the staff were friendly and so very helpful. RN Danny made my son and I so comfortable and walked us through each step of the process today. Thank you all very much for a positive experience.

- Verified patient on 4/10

I have been using restore urgent care for the past 4 years, regarding any medical issues I have had. The staff is incredible, starting at the front desk where Nicole does a phenomenal job, dealing with all the patients. She is extremely friendly and professional. Next is Trish, who is the best Nurse Practitioner I have ever met. She always makes the proper diagnosis, and prescribes what ever is necessary to cure my ailments. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of being treated and helped by Yasmina, who is an outstanding Physicians Assistant. There is one problem I’ve noticed in recent visits. The staff is overwhelmed with the amount of patients coming in. I realize when Covid-19 broke out, people were reluctant to visit a hospital or any medical facility. Little by little people started visiting these facilities, because they needed care. Most were making appointments, and felt comfortable coming in to Urgent Care, especially, with the sanitizing of the facility, masks required, and terrific spacing of the chairs in the waiting room. Now, that more and more patients are coming in for care, in my opinion, changes have to be made to accommodate everyone. I suggest that more staff be hired. You need more than one NP and one PA on duty at all times. Currently, patients can make an appointment, but with all the walk in traffic, it is virtually impossible to handle the work load. Thank you for reading this survey.

- Verified patient on 10/23

Wait time was terrible, BUT they were extremely busy and definitely not the fault of the facility. Reception and nurses were courteous despite a stressful load and Doctor listened and was attentive to my existing condition that caused my visit today as well at previous treatments and what had worked best. In 10 years of dealing with this, that's only happened with 3 doctors. We are in process of moving to the area and this will be our preferred urgent care.

Urgent Care in Jacksonville

Urgent care is Jacksonville'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 Jacksonville-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.
