From the time I called to seeing Dr. Sharif it was a breeze. Everyone so friendly. Everyone had gloves and masks on which made me comfortable. I even had to post on my facebook page that I highly recommend this urgent care. The Xray guy was also very attentive. Thank you!

I wanted to get CoVID test ASAP. It was the only place that would give me an appointment within one day. The process was simple. You book an appointment online and fill out preliminary paperwork before you go. They ask that you show up 15 minutes before to do triage. I waited no more than 10 minutes before i was called to come in. The staff were all very friendly and made me feel at ease. I was in and out under an hour. I would definitely be back if I need more testing done and absolutely recommend Riverside Urgent Care.

The vaccine was administered with not even a pinch. All were friendly and enthusiastic. Kudos to the entire staff for their part in moving us all forward to a safe environment for all!!!

Latest Urgent Care Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)

Urgent Care FAQs

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

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

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

    Solv allows Watchung 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 Watchung who takes my insurance?

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

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

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

We were very dissatisfied with the experience we had at the Watchung Urgent Care. The facility is heavily understaffed and overwhelmed with work. Patients wait for over an hour to be seen and the medical staff have no breaks or time to take care of patients on time. I really recommend to hire more medical staff as the current one is burned out and could leave any day. Otherwise the experience and the quality of medical attention received was amazing. Very caring and kind medical staff (not the front desk however who was giving contradicting information).

Clean, pleasant Urgent Care

I made an appointment the day before for 9:30am. Because this was my first visit to a urgent care since the pandemic I followed the online rules accordingly. I confirmed my appointment and checked in via the app upon my 10 minute early arrival. I waited in my car until my name came up via the app and online portal. I was told via the app that I had 5 ppl ahead of me so I waited and waited and waited. About an hour later it said 2 ppl were ahead of me. Until suddenly around 11:30am the app said that I needed to confirm my appointment and the list has disappeared. I now go inside to see what happened and I was told I didn’t come in to check-in, (basically they weren’t following the app) and people were very much waiting in the lobby opposed to their cars. I then find myself completing the very same information that I was asked to complete via the online portal (total waste of time) fast forward to the visit. I then speak with the doctor via the telephone providing him with my history and basically saying that I believed that I had a upper respiratory infection, possibly bronchitis because I’ve had it in the past and this is what I’m feeling. Needless to say I was only given a covid test and sent home. An antibiotic was sent to the pharmacy although the doctor said he would send other prescriptions but didn’t. This was a total waste of my time and energy! It’s like since the pandemic everything is covid related and people can’t be just sick anymore. I guess I will do what I should’ve did in the beginning and that’s try to get an emergency appointment with my primary. I’d like to add that this doctor was well aware that I have a history of PE, pneumonia, pleural effusion, gerd, bronchitis (which is all respiratory) and I informed the doctor of all of this. The fact that a covid test was the answer when I haven’t been exposed is totally unacceptable.

My husband and I found out late on a Sunday night that we had been exposed to someone with COVID. I called MedExpress, obviously panicked, and a very polite woman answered the phone. It was 7:30 and they closed at 8, I thought for sure she was going to tell me that I would have to wait until Monday to get tested. Instead she very happily explained their new drive up policy and told us to head over. Upon arriving, we were the second car to need care. We waited a very short amount of time and then a male nurse helped us. Again, I thought he would have been panicked because of the reason we were there. However he spoke to us calmly, treated us extremely nicely and answered all of our questions even though at this point it was about 8 pm. Then PA Papeika came out and again treated us with the best bedside manner, patience and care. I wish I remembered the receptionist and nurse’s names, because everyone is worth mentioning by name. They all were extremely friendly and welcoming. We are new to the area and anytime we need medical help, this is the urgent care we will be visiting. Thank you all for helping us through a very scary moment, we will be recommending your facility!

Riverside Urgent Care quality of care was fantastic. The nurse & doctor provided excellent care, were friendly, prompt, respectful of my time, & memorable. This is my 2nd visit within 3 months & both visits were identical with the nurse & doctor. What is abhorrent is the front desk staff. It went from bad to worse. On my very last visit on 12/2, the receptionist clerk should be fired!! She did not respect my time, clearly lacks impersonal soft skills necessary to work or empathize with the public, & has poor time management. She wouldn't let me wait as a walk-in patient at noon & instead I came back at 6 pm for my scheduled appt. I checked in early with the receptionist at 5:45 as advised, & she told me to wait in the car as a nurse would call me. 45 minutes later at 6:30, I walk back in since I hadn't received a call & much to my surprise, the same receptionist never registered me. She only registered me when I asked why I hadn't received a call & it was obvious why. No apology or accountability was given. Completely unacceptable. I received a call from the nurse before I even made it back to my car. As the 1st face you see when you enter, the receptionist sets the tone for your brand. The public can spend their dollars at any medical facility. Hire a better quality receptionist who can manage bedside manners with the public in the same likeness your nurses & doctors do so well. Otherwise I loved my experience. The care & follow up were spot on! On-board quality receptionists for your financial well-being.

5 hour wait, just to refer me to a dermatologist. I'm sure my insurance company will be billed for a 3 minute visit. What the use of having an urgent care of I am not seen as an urgent matter? I will not go there again

From start to finish my experience was great. Jessica at the front desk was professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The facility is immaculate with all visual protocols being followed. The vaccine was administered with not even a pinch. All were friendly and enthusiastic. Kudos to the entire staff for their part in moving us all forward to a safe environment for all!!! Highly recommend Riverside Urgent Care!

I was told upon my arrival that there was not an x-ray tech on staff that day. I agreed to be seen despite this since I had already made the trip, although this was disappointing because I was there for a back injury I could have just as easily gone to my primary but I chose riverside be I expected to receive those services there. The doctor told me I could come back tomorrow for an x-ray but then found out there wouldn't be an x-ray tech then either. I asked the doctor if she could write me a prescription for the x-rays I was told they don't do that,y only option would be to try to drive to another one of their locations. I wish this would have been explained to me upfront. I know things happen but honestly, no x-ray at an urgent care for 2 days is a little ridiculous.

It’s ridiculous to tell me to make an appointment in order to come to an urgent care and I come at the time of my appointment and I still have to wait one hour to be seen it’s ridiculous. So what was the point of making me make an appointment to come to urgent care if I’m going to sit down for one hour before I’m seen

The check in process was a little rough. The woman that checked me in was not the most pleasant person but I will chalk it up to Covid. When trying not to yell my info to her because of the masks she seemed to be annoyed that she could not hear me. I wish for the front desk staff they had better accommodations to check patients in. I know it can be very frustrating to have people just stand there and stare at you while you are trying to do work that needs to get done before you can help them out. I wish people in general had more patience when it comes to not knowing what goes on just because there is not a person in front of the employee. Todd the gentleman that took my vitals and administered the test was amazing. Haley the PA was also amazing. I would recommend Riverside Urgent Care and if I needed to I would go back to the facility.

Upon arrival communicated that patient was in distress coping with the thought of his injury (a severe finger cut) and explained he needed to lay down to recover from sweats and feeling faint from anxiety as this reaction was normal for the patient. No offer for immediate triage of patient. Made to sit 40 minutes in waiting room under continued distress. When finally called into triage patient was in better condition and in control of his emotions. When seen by PA, patient again experienced anxiety from hearing PA discuss action on the finger, a trigger, and patient asked for ice pack to head and oxygen to help stabalize the physical symptoms of anxiety as has been a common treatment to reduce symptoms in the past. We were told there was no oxygen available at the facility, an ice pack was provided. PA immediately refused further treatment, even though pulsox was 99% and heart rate was normal. He allowed no time for recovery and subsequent treatment. Instead he directed patient to leave the facility and go to a hospital. Patient left and we went to Family Care in Green Brook, NJ, placing an advance call to that facility explaining that we had been denied treatment and a hospital visit would be too great of a financial burden, if avoidable. They told us to come straight to Family Care where patient was immediately triage, treated with antiseptic soaking, glue and steri-strips, a tetanus shot and a prescribed antibiotic. Just a few extra minutes at Riverside Urgent Care, helping the patient through a tough time would have saved the patient further distress of a transfer.

The first staff and doctor could not do enough for me after testing positive to Covid. Actually sent me to the ER for even more help. The hospital called me to say I had pneumonia and go to urgent care just so the can take a listen. Also I had a sinus infection plus Covid had settled in my back I couldn’t hardly walk. So I went back and they refused to see me because my 10 days wasn’t up. Even after I told them how bad I was. They told me to come back on Sunday which was my 10 day. I took a turn for the worst. It was horrible pain I was in, I had a very hard time breathing. Went back on Sunday and the dr couldn’t have been nicer. Nurse told me that was really upsetting that they turned you away. So now I am on an antibiotic and steroid which I wish I would’ve started on Friday I am out of work for another 4 days. Which I was out the whole last week. I was told my quarantine was up on 11/13. Hopefully returning to work on Monday. I just started my job only working 3 days. I know it is no one’s fault I go Covid, but I wish I wasn’t turned away on Friday.

This was absolutely the worst experience I’ve ever had at an urgent care. I had to come in two separate time and both times I waited over two hours to be seen, only for me to get in the back and be insulted by the doctor. I will be looking for corporate phone number to file a complaint

The doctor was professional and the nurse was very nice. What compromised my review a bit was I elected a 6:00 pm appointment, I know that does not guarantee me to be seen at 6, I had no problem waiting. Then 40 minutes go by and I see people coming in and then leaving. I asked the receptionist when I would be seen without even checking anything she says there are 2 people in-front of you. I know how this urgent care works I come here all the time they call you after you check in on ur phone when your ready to be seen. Everyone who came in, came after me with later appointments. New people were coming in and checking in. So I asked her again nicely and she replied in a very rude tone saying you just reserved a time that doesn’t mean it’s an appointment and there are 2 ppl infront of you they are waiting in the cars outside. I say ok and sit and wait some more. The 7:15 appointment walks in checks in and the nurse comes out and is calling her name. Luckily she went outside for something and finally the receptionist looks confused and asks me my name and tells the nurse I’m suppose to go in. When I go in to meet the nurse who was extremely friendly, he said he thought I was waiting for someone he had no idea I was waiting to see a doctor, and I told him my experience with the receptionist and he apologized. Overall the providers are good and keep a professional look for the office, but when the receptionist are snappy and not paying attention it makes people reconsider going to an urgent care.

I have know Dan Murtha thru business networking, many years. He has always dine amazing work with overall operation. I got to witness that when I set up and had a COVID test. I called s few days ahead, to schedule. The lovely female staff member instructed me that if I fo online to register the day before (8am is when schedule is set up for next day) that I should be able to get 3 appts in together, without trouble. Wed, I had alittle difficulty registering my hubby. I called and spoke to Clinical staff member Erica. She assisted me with online registration. I was stressed with the idea that my hubby had been exposed to the virus, and myself and my mother in law also had to be tested. I wanted to make sure that all 3 of us were tested in 10 min time frames consecutively. Erica was compassionate to my needs, registering us from her end. I was able to fill out insurance from my phone easily. I liked how I was informed via text, and could check my wait time. I arrived 20 mins early, and did not have a long wait time. Outside of building looked clean and neat. Inside was decorated in relaxing neutral colors with a modern feel. Immaculate! Very large waiting area allowed seating to be properly spaced, and then some! Aliki Galandos took our info from car, called us to come in, and brought us back to complete testing. She was patient, answering all of our questions cheerfully. She explained process and allowed time for any other questions.(first time for all of us!). She explained timing of pcr test results, and how to retrieve them thru Lab Corp online. Excellent experience. We left extremely satisfied. I have always referred family and friends to this Urgent Care since I met Dan, and saw his passion regarding his extremely well run front end staff and clinical team. This week I got to witness the great care myself, and I was not disapointed!

Left Springfield because they didn’t know if the person who handles drug testing was going to be in. I was the first person there.They sent me to Watchung where I walked in at roughly 8:20. Within 10 minutes I realized how annoyed the entire waiting room was. Your Dr. (the only Dr on staff) was running late and did not arrive until 9:15 or 9:20. Please let the Dr know smartphones have an alarm feature. One patient, also in for a drug test was complaining to your staff that the Dr wasn’t in when she was there the day before either. Are you to tell me the staff cannot conduct Covid or Drug test without a Dr present on staff?! If that’s the case, you need to sit that Dr down end remind the man of the Hippocratic oath. Perhaps you need a reliable MD on staff & he remain on as backup? I over 3-1/2 hours to be called. For what it’s worth and I perfectly realize you do not care. However,I am a branch manager with approximately 27 people under me. All of which are subject to the same random testing. I sent one of my salespeople somewhere else last week. They had him in and out within 30minutes. That is by no means an exaggeration because I called him right after my experience. Almost everyone in that room mentioned that they would never be return to your facility for care. While I sat in your waiting room (which should have recliners and couches in place of the chairs in place now with that wait time) I sent an email to corporate to take unUrgent Care off of our list, at least for my branch.

I went in for Covid19 testing and was so happy with the ease and speed of my visit. I tried going to another urgent care yesterday, in Cliffside Park, and not only did I wait over an hour just to hear that when the app was telling me there were only 4 people ahead of me, it was actually about another 2 hour wait. I decided to postpone for today. I scheduled something but then wanted to change the time and when I called them no one answered the phone. I called Promptmed, after trying to get through To AM/PM Urgent Care a couple of times, and immediately someone at PromptMed answered the call and cheerfully and professionally said I was welcome to go there as a walk-in anytime between 8-5PM. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! I have already made a few calls to friends and recommended PromptMed and dissuaded them from going to AM/PM Urgent Care. That place is a NIGHTMARE!!

Unlike my previous experience, this time I waited 2-1/2 hrs. to have my bandage changed. Not sure how you remedy this -- maybe have 'back-up' or on-call staff if it gets really busy. Other folks were quite irrate. Next time, I will probably try another Urgent Care in the future.

I was told my rapid Covid test results would take 48 hours. I was attending a function that required everyone to be tested. My test was 9:00 on Thursday morning. I had to go back to the urgent care on Saturday ( Sunday was the function) to request the results because the lab didn’t post them. I received the results.Then the results were posted on Tuesday!! That’s ridiculous!! Never again

Urgent Care in Watchung

Urgent care is Watchung'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 Watchung-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.
