Intake nurse was amazingly friendly and warm. Provider was thorough. Wait was what is expected for an urgent care visit. Was in and out in 30 minutes so can’t complain about that.

Overall very good. The redundancy of information being requested on multiple forms can be a bit frustrating. Why do you have to ask for the same information to three times. Dante was very cordial and very professional. Make sure you thank you.

I was seen at this urgent care clinic by nurse practitioner “Nellie” and registered by Jessica. My daughter made the appointment and we were to be seen in an hour. Ms. Nellie diagnosed my shingles and treated me for same. I cannot thank her enough for her care as I had been misdiagnosed at another PHS clinic in Clovis. I hope she and Jessica as well as the assessment RN receive notice of my thanks! Date of service March 16, 2019. WELL DONE!!! Marian Lee Smith

Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much will an urgent care visit in Rio Rancho cost?

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

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

    Solv allows Rio Rancho 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 Rio Rancho who takes my insurance?

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

    Many urgent care centers, including those in Rio Rancho, 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 Rio Rancho?

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

Facility cleanliness was very good but outside the front door there was garbage and debris that made things look bad. Overall this Urgent Care is a good option for medical needs.

- Verified patient on 10/9

I went here to get my std status updated. I specifically asked if they do std testing here and the receptionist said yes, but there will be uo to a 2 hr wait. She asked if i was having any symptoms and i said no, i just need to get my std status updated. She said i can schedule an appointment next week so you won't have to wait as long. I said great and made the appointment. I went to my appointment only to find out that they don't test for HIV or herpies, 2 of the main tests that all responsible sexually active people want when they update their status. When i expressed my frustration and said they should tell people that they don't test for those, i was met with " I don't know what they do back there, and i don't know what tests you want. URGENT CARE! PLEASE EDUCATE YOUR STAFF SO YOUR CUSTOMERS DON'T HAVE TO MAKE A SEPARATE APPOINTMENT SOMEWHERE ELSE TO GET THE OTHER HALF OF THEIR STD STATUS COMPLETED. TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME AND MONEY, NOT TO MENTION LOST TIME FROM WORK!

- Verified patient on 12/10

"Was your check-in process convenient?" YES! The wait time was terrible and there was NO information provided at check that it was going to be a long wait and there was only 5 people in the waiting room. Unknown to me people were waiting in their car! I wasn't told about that nor was I told that option or was I told how long long it would be or if I could leave and expect a text 5, 10 15 min before my turn, if I could wait in my car and get a text when it was my turn. I was not offered water. There was NOT 1 update as to how much longer it might be before I could expect to see a Dr. NO customer consideration AT ALL. 1 hour and 45 minutes I waited in the lobby in a chair to see the Dr. That was A Pleasant professional experience. Would I recommend NexCare Urgent Care ? ...... NO!

- Verified patient on 8/30

Solv made it more convenient to make an appointment, but the wait times are almost ridiculous. Waiting 30 minutes after my appointment time to get called and then sat in an exam room for like an hour. I would only recommend nexcare urgent care in rio rancho, NM if its a relatively minor issue like a uti and you have some time to spare.

I like to go to this urgent care because they are friendly & fast.

- Verified patient on 5/4

Let me start by saying that our family always comes to next care for when we need urgent care. The doctor I saw today was wonderful and did an excellent job assessing my symptoms and evaluating my problem. She was kind and gentle and explained everything she said in detail. My triage nurse, however, was extremely unprofessional. She asked what medication I was on and when I explained to her why I was taking it, she brought up politics. She went on about how the former president is an idiot. When I told her I felt the opposite and that I liked our former president, she kept at it, saying he’s not the sharpest crayon in the box and how he wouldn’t shut his mouth. I came to NextCare because I was not feeling well, not to be shamed and spoken down to. That is no place to talk politics, it is a place for care. She needs to keep those thoughts to herself and out of her bedside chit chat.

- Verified patient on 7/19

Pleasantly surprised for a walk in clinic. If I ever have another need for urgent care, this is where I will come.

- Verified patient on 9/17

I was so very impressed by this facility. Everyone was very organized and professional. I was very fortunate that there were not very many other patients. I was seen within 10 minutes of arrival. Saw the doctor within the next 10, then on my way. Clean, organized, professional. I would highly recommend and this will be my go to urgent care facility for as long as I live in Rio Rancho.

- Verified patient on 2/24

Excellent patient service overall. Highly recommend this place for urgent care. Wait time was understandable due to COVID symptoms plus other illnesses. Kudos to NP-Jacob Armijo for his patience and clear explanations of diagnosis and prescription.

- Verified patient on 1/4

This is my favorite urgent care center. Things are organized and things just feel calmer here than any other place I have been. The provider was clearly capable and had a great bedside manner. Right now without an appointment wait times though can be in the hours timeframe. The good news is that they tell you how long when you arrive so you can choose to stay or not.

Short wait, very clean, staff was polite and professional. Far exceeds the last time I was at a different urgent care in ***. Was expecting the same experience. Would highly recommend this one!

- Verified patient on 8/27

I was very disappointed when I got to the pharmacy and found that the NP prescribed my 90 year old mom a 4 times a day drug that was more expensive than the two times a day drug that does the same thing. Very bugged about it and won't go there again. I will look for another Urgent Care. I went back again to verify with the NP and she insisted it was the right one and wouldn't explain why she chose that one. The other is the most common (generic for Macrobid) and cheaper (bid). The generic for Macrodantin that she prescribed was twice the price and four times a day. That is so hard to do with an older lady. She could have explained why she chose that less common form of the drug and why she thought that was the best.

Urgent Care in Rio Rancho

Urgent care is Rio Rancho'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 Rio Rancho-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.
