I had the great fortune of being one of their first patients. Young woman at front was pleasant and efficient. The APN provider was professional and appropriate in her assessment. I was very grateful for the quick attention because I felt terrible. Only issue: no follow-up phone call to see how i was doing. Im in the health care business, and follow-up phone call is best practice.

I came here and was greeted immediately by the fine staff at front desk. Within minutes I had a room and my vitals were taken. The medical assistant Karina was very kind and gentle when drawing my blood. She also helped me schedule a follow up and was patient with me as I took my time to think. Overall this clinic was very clean and I would highly recommend that anyone come here for a quick and pleasant visit.

Urgent Care FAQs

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

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

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

    Solv allows Chicago 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 Chicago who takes my insurance?

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

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

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

Great experience! Had no wait time at all! Nurse and NP were very thorough and friendly! NP Beth put my mind at ease from worrying. Will highly recommend Urgent Care on Wabash to my family and friends!! It's so reassuring to know that I have such a caring place as Urgent Care on Wabash to go to when needed!

Dr. Stan Allen is always the most knowledgeable, gracious and caring physician. He makes me feel so comfortable and I know whenever I need anything from urgent care, no matter how big or small the issue, I can count on him. He takes great care in listening and explaining as well discussing the efficacy and side effects of any medications he may order. I feel so lucky to have him available at the Sherman Urgent Care!

I arrived and was told there would be at least an hour wait was that ok. Computers were down I was ok with that circumstance. After about 45 minutes an emergency patient came to the office. He was taken to an examiner room immediately. Again I was ok with that. If it were me I would like the same treatment. Once I was in an examine room and vitals were taken by the RN I waited for about a 45 minute for the Dr to come in. Both the Dr and the RN apologized that I had such a long wait. I think they were doing what an urgent care office is all about. I would go back to that office with no reservation. Wonderful care with sincere kindness

- Verified patient on 12/16

Had to stop in as I had been in St. Louis, fell down some concrete stairs and regular Tylenol and muscle relaxer were not helping my headache. I had tried to make a follow up with my physician but her opening was at 1:00 pm and we couldn’t make that time. Her nurse told me to go to an urgent care facility or ER. The scheduling system allows you to self- schedule, very easy to use and reschedule appointment, gives you directions, and tells you how long you wait time is. Mine was not long at all, no one before me.

- Verified patient on 6/18

I’m from Kansas City and happened to be in Chicago visiting a relative. During my stay, I had received the news that several of my co-workers had tested positive for COVID. I found Family Urgent Care through Solv. I received 2 COVID tests through them during my quarantine and my wait time was next to nothing in both cases. The staff was friendly and in both instances I received phone calls as to my results. The doctor was very informative and was able to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend them!

I ended up having to use the urgent care after I waited for two and a half hours for my primary Dr at Springfield Clinic to return my call, just to tell me that they couldn’t see me. I’m furious with him and told him to find me a new Dr. Which actually I haven’t gotten to see my Dr in over 2 yrs. Just his Nurse Practitioner.

My first time to visit Springfield Clinic's Urgent Care facility. No one likes to go to the doctor but when you need to this clinic would be my recommendation. From booking an appointment online, to checking in, being evaluated and a trip to x-ray, the experience was a package deal of professionalism mixed with a friendly, caring staff. I will return if I have to, hoping that I won't. Thank you!

This is our second visit at AFC Urgent care. I gladly came back because all of the staff are very friendly, professional, and caring towards their patients and guardian’s. This Urgent care is always very clean, organized and simple. I booked an appointment and when I arrived I only waited a minute or two before we were seen. I would definitely recommend this Urgent care to any families. It’s easy to book an appointment online or over the phone. Thank you all!

ZERO REVIEW!! Normally I don’t give bad reviews but today I will. My appointment was at list 2hrs in advance. Completed all my paperwork online and I was all set. I even arrived 5min early incase I needed to signed anything else. I waiting in the office for at list 40 minutes, I noticed 3ppl where called before me. I thought maybe it was taking longer to be call because my appointment was different and it simply wasn’t a COVID-19 test. I asked the front office what’s taking so long. They really didn’t have a answer to give me, final they tell me that they simply didn’t write my name in their check list. I was so upset for how unprofessional this urgent care really cares for people. To the next person be prepared to wait 40 minutes before being call even when they tell you is just a few minutes. Then expect to wait another 40 minutes in the room before they finally give a medication prescription.

Although, Initially I was very nervous about the visit but the kind doctor assured me that she would do all that she could to help me and she put my mind at ease. She even call another doctor's office to see if they would give me farther assistance. Thank you

When I arrived I was told it could be up to a 2 hour wait due to scheduled appointments and walk in traffic. I was seen by Esperanza Roman in about 30 minutes. She was terrific, very friendly and didn’t make me cry. If you are in need of urgent care, you will be in very good hands at Fox Valley UC.

I’m from Kansas City and happened to be in Chicago visiting a relative. During my stay, I had received the news that several of my co-workers had tested positive for COVID. I found Family Urgent Care through Solv. I received 2 COVID tests through them during my quarantine and my wait time was next to nothing in both cases. The staff was friendly and in both instances I received phone calls as to my results. The doctor was very informative and was able to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend them!

We went for an urgent care need because of favorable Yelp reviews. I went in with significant abdominal pain and was seen after filling out a ton of paperwork. Was seen within 15 min and both Dr Anita and MA Lauryn were so terrific that we shall be switching to their practice for my first primary care.

I was beyond satisfied with my experience at Kids Urgent Care. The space is clean, comfortable and welcoming. The entire medical team was beyond friendly, respectful, patient and empathetic. Dr Abdullah was amazing! She took her time, explained everything so well and made us feel confident in her care. I will definitely return time and time again. Thank you to the whole team. You are appreciated!

I was really worried after I read some terrible reviews. People said how rude staff was. Well let me tell you, everyone from the moment I walked in the door, from the receptionist, nurse took my vitals, person who swabbed me for covid test, and doctor came in with results, were kind, helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend AFC Urgent Care

Dr Abraham expected immediate responses when I couldn’t think due to severe shaking. He listened to me only part of the time. I was told I had a UTI when there, but at no time on the call back regarding my blood tests was I told I had a kidney infection. A 2nd medication was added but my urologist said it was not needed. Only when I went to my primary care was I told the kidneys were infected. I was disappointed in my care for the first time at urgent care.

Went in today to urgent care, had Dr. Abraham, he was very nice, patient, and informational. The only issue was that the location was hard to find since it had moved. It took awhile to find where the new location was due to the sign being small, and then the directions were not clear, and we had to drive around for a bit before finding the new location.

Molly welcomed me to the storefront and was pleasant and friendly. The registration process was quick and easy to complete, using a QR code and my cell phone. Since they are only conducting COVID-19 testing, you can walk-in without waiting behind patients at an Urgent Care or "express" clinic. I recommend this site for COVID-19 testing!

It also says that Advocate Aurora holds the largest provider market share in Chicago at 16.8%, followed by Northwestern Memorial HealthCare (11.6%) and Rush (8.4%).

According to the Health Care Council of Chicago, Chicago’s main goal for health care is to better connect people in its community with available healthcare services. Many Chicago residents with healthcare needs cannot access treatment because of factors including lack of insurance, health inequity, and physical distance. Crain’s Chicago Business and the Health Care Council of Chicago both say that the city’s goal is to expand healthcare operations so it is more accessible to the city’s residents.

Factors to consider when choosing urgent care in Chicago

Location may be the top factor to consider when choosing an urgent care provider in Chicago, reports Crain’s Chicago Business and the Health Care Council of Chicago. These sources say that people in Chicago are reluctant to travel long distances for health care due to how difficult it can be to get from place to place. Construction, congested traffic, and inclement weather are all factors that make it difficult to navigate Chicago. These sources add that Chicago has a neighborhood-focused culture. Therefore, patients should look for urgent care systems close to home when reviewing their provider options.

Pricing and costs of urgent care in Chicago

The cost of urgent care in Chicago varies from provider to provider. Some urgent care centers accept health insurance, while others operate solely on a self-pay basis. Contact the urgent care center of your choice to determine whether they accept insurance and to ask about their rates for treating non-emergency injuries and illnesses. You can also go directly to the urgent care provider’s website to learn more about financing and payment options.

How to find an urgent care provider in Chicago

To find a Chicago urgent care center, type “urgent care near me” into your browser and review your options. Better yet, use Solv to find an urgent care center near you. Solv features an easy-to-use directory of only the highest-rated healthcare providers in your area. Go to Solv, and select “Urgent Care” and “Chicago, IL” from the dropdown menus. Then, book a same-day appointment directly from our website.

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.
