This urgent care is amazing! I was kindly greeted right away by Sofia and was taken back right on time for my appointment! Daisy made me feel at home while she roomed me and even made me forget about my pain for a little while. Sweet Elba came in to check to see if I was doing ok while I waited for my provider and that was very comforting. Dan Joseph was amazing! He confirmed my suspicion of infection and made sure to send me home with something that will knock it right out! Feeling better already! Thank you!!

This was the only Renown Urgent Care in Reno that had appointment availability today, so we drove a long way approx 45 minutes each way. It was a quick solution vs waiting as a “walk-in” local to us, which can be hours waiting. We were in the room 30 minutes after our appointment, the doctor was thorough, friendly, and provided the necessary medications. The staff were professional & friendly as well. I will return to this location again if we get in the predicament we faced today.

Recent patient review

Everything was fine, except for Dr. Bogart. He needs to be able to separate his political views from his medical treatment of his patients. Right off the bat, when I said I was not vaccinated, he started to reprimand me in a very unkind way. Only after he had me in tears, did he back off and apologize. Very unprofessional, and should not have happened. I wonder if he would like his grandmother to be treated in such a way, if she was very sick and went to receive medical help! I would never recommend him to anyone, nor ever be seen by him again, myself.

Urgent Care FAQs

  • How much will an urgent care visit in Carson City cost?

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

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

    Solv allows Carson City 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 Carson City who takes my insurance?

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

    Many urgent care centers, including those in Carson City, 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 Carson City?

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

The urgent care was definitely understaffed but Karla (I hope that’s her name.. she’s brunette, wears glasses, and is fairly young) did an AMAZING job at helping up front as well as in the room. She really should be recognized for her efficiency, friendliness, and cleanliness.Thank you for making the long wait a pleasant experience!

Renown Urgent Care is an excellent facility- the waiting room and patient rooms are very clean and tidy. The girl at the front desk was incredibly polite, helpful and took the time to answer all my questions. The two MA’s who roomed me were very professional and efficient. The Nurse Practitioner Amanda took all of my concerns into account and was very thorough and professional. I sincerely appreciate the care I received from this clinic.

- Verified patient on 12/21

I scheduled an appointment the same day to get a COVID test for my son. Everything was very easy. Once we arrived, we were greeted and checked in by friendly office staff. Waited in our car for a few minutes then was called to come in. We were then greeted by the nicest nurse practitioner (unfortunately I can’t remember her name!) who took my sons vitals, collected symptom info. and administered the nasal swab test. She finished with us and said that the doctor will be right in to talk to my son and further evaluate him (check, ears, eyes, throat, lungs, etc.) Within a few minutes, AJ, the doctor, came in and was just great! My 15-year old son said he was “cool”. His bedside manner was the best I’ve seen in a long time. He was very knowledgeable and informative. I would highly recommend this urgent care facility to everyone I know!

Urgent Care in Carson City

Urgent care is Carson City'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 Carson City-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.
