When you need urgent care, they are the place to go!
So happy to give a review of our experience at urgent care. My husband is a disabled veteran and had to have emergency care last winter. The Dr. there was great and my husband has No other Dr. than the ones He has at The Va hospital in Asheville.NC. The Dr. at urgent care in Morganton sent all his findings to Va hospital. We are very happy to know there is a place he can go in case of an emergency.
Wonderful caring staff. Thank you UC.
Caraway 3 reviews just now I visited FastMed Urgent Care this morning after experiencing increasing pain from sciatica to the point I was unable to walk. They brought me a wheelchair immediately and assisted me in a very concerned and compassionate manner. I had come unprepared without a copy of my insurance card, so I was concerned they would be unable to treat me without the proper documentation. They were able to retrieve verification of my insurance through Watauga Medical Center. They treated my issue extremely quickly, even though several people were ahead of me in line. That usually means an hour wait anywhere else. I was first met by a medical assistant, Yankee Don. He was fabulous and demonstrated a great amount of care, compassion and competence. He was so attentive to all my needs. If you’re in pain or not feeling well, you could not ask for a better person to reassure you that you will be taken care of. Yankee Don was born to help people and he should be commended for his work ethic and treatment of his patients. I then met Greg, who I believe is a physician’s assistant. Greg was so nice, considerate and knowledgeable. He knew exactly how to diagnose and treat my issue. Greg educated me about the cause of my problem, and a lot of healthcare workers do not take the time to explain why you’re not feeling well. He precisely diagnosed my problem and made me feel that I was in the best hands. He treated my issue completely and provided follow up care instructions. Within an hour, I was completely pain-free and able to walk on my own without any narcotic pain medication whatsoever. Greg is literally a miracle worker, if you ask me, and I feel so fortunate that I was in his care. Upon my departure, I was escorted to my car by Yankee Don, who was so attentive to my needs until he was sure I was comfortably seated in my vehicle and ready to leave. They called in a prescription to a local pharmacy, but I had a problem with my insurance. I contract MedFast and Yankee Don assisted me, contacting me several times to make sure I was able to obtain my prescription. He is literally the nicest man ever. The process, from beginning to end, was top-notch, from check-in to check-out, and beyond. Speed of service...5 stars. Attention to patient needs...5 stars. Competence...5 stars. Professionalism...5 stars. Follow up care...5 stars. Good job, guys! I’m hard to impress. I’m impressed.
Went in on a Saturday and was called back to a room before I could even get registered. Everyone was very kind and caring. I was given antibiotics, NSAID, pain med, and anti-emetic. I was encouraged to call in the following days if I had further issues.
Urgent Care FAQs
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.

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.
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.
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.
