We made an appointment so the wait time was fine. My son came in and had some asthma issues with a double ear infection. We were so happy to see Natalie!!!!! She has awesome bedside manner and just very personable. Skiatook urgent care needs to keep her. Please listen to our reviews and requests. She is the only one that we care to keep!

Everything was great, like always. Except for the medical assistant/LPN who seems to have a major attitude every tine we come in. He’s very rude and unfriendly. Almost getting to the point where we will find another urgent care to go to even though that one is really close to our house. It’s happens numerous times when I’ve brought my kiddos in and also it’s happened to my boyfriend when he’s also brought our kids in.

Latest Urgent Care updates

Jun 15, 2022
Americans aged 50 and older are feeling the pressure of healthcare costs, with 4 in 10 concerned about their ability to pay for care and others forgoing treatment altogether, skipping prescriptions or cutting back on daily living expenses to afford healthcare. (Becker's)
Jun 15, 2022
BA.4 and BA.5 — "sister variants" of the original omicron strain — are gaining prevalence in the U.S. and now account for about 1 in 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases nationwide, CDC data shows. (Becker's)

Urgent Care FAQs

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

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

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

    Solv allows Tulsa 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 Tulsa who takes my insurance?

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

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

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

My nurse with the blond hair (I’m so sorry, the president could have been there and there’s a chance I may have not put 2 and 2 together) she was wonderful! Her bedside manner was on point! The only person you’d possibly receive better care from is your own mother, and unless she’s in the healthcare field we’ll just have to call it close. Thank you to dr. Daniel for being extremely time efficient, you made me feel like a person whose time mattered, you answered all questions in a manner that did not leave me with more questions than I even began with. Will be recommending, and I can say that’s honestly the first time I’ve ever said those words when “urgent care” was the topic.

This is the only urgent care facility that myself and my family have ever gone to and will continue to do so. Everyone was so kind, thorough and professional. Thank you for providing a place to go without having to go to a hospital ER.

- Verified patient on 11/11

I was there twice within a week and each time my experience was top notch. I wish i could make it my primary practice instead of an urgent care, but i ill definitely be back. Dr. Stacy was the nicest doctor. He was all by himself and was my receptionist, nurse, x-ray tech and doctor. He was wonderful and took great care of me. I have already recommended the clinic to several people.

- Verified patient on 8/9

Aside from current Covid restrictions, the service was very good. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I was pleased with the assistance received, especially from the doctor. I will be pleased to recommend this facility for urgent care.

- Verified patient on 12/10

Dr. Hunt was very friendly and informative. Appreciated his advise and care. Will definitely go to this clinic again when I am visiting from out of town if I have another need for Urgent Care.

- Verified patient on 11/18

Was my first time there and all was great. I would recommend this urgent care to all. I didn’t go in. They came to my car and checked me out. Had results in15mnts. 5 stars for my visit and ty to all are healthcare workers and first responders for all you do and go through. Truely I tell you for all you do seen and unseen there are treasure and blessings of God upon you.ty

- Verified patient on 9/24

we received excellent care at this urgent care and would highly recommend it to other families. We went in with my daughter for a Covid test and the doctor was so thorough to make sure we got excellent care to find out what actually was going on with her because she did not test positive for Covid. great quality care. I also had to call back to get a note for her school and they took care of everything

This the best urgent Care I have ever experienced. The staff was amazing and actually took the time to really help me. I will be using them from now on.

- Verified patient on 3/10

Dr.Stacy is such a great doctor! He is always reliable, available, and communicates so well. He's been our go to urgent care doctor when it comes to needing treatment. So happy we found him!

- Verified patient on 3/28

Great experience! Online appointment scheduling was excellent; waiting room was full when I arrived but was able to get in within 15 minutes of my appointment time. Additionally, the doctor who saw me had great "bedside manner" and made me feel like I wasn't a thorn during her busy day. Definitely recommend! Side Note: I had an appointment with my PCM at a different location 2 weeks prior to being seen here. The appointment was during the holidays and it was cancelled on me the day of my appointment. The earliest they could get me in was 2 weeks later. I dealt with my condition (Not Emergency Room problem) as long as I could but realized I couldn't make it another 4 days (I was miserable!) I didn't want to go to an emergency room so searched for a walk-in clinic and decided to go to MedNOW Urgent Care. I'm glad I did and will go here again if I can't get in to see my PCM in a timely manner and it's not a condition warranting an Emergency Room visit.

- Verified patient on 1/5

Short wait time, friendly staff, ability to book ahead with great messages and use of online/tech resources!! One of the best urgent care experiences I've had, and being a Mom of 4 boys, that means something!!

I have been to Access Medical Center several times with my Family or myself and have been treated excellently and timely. I highly recommend the Urgent Care on 81st off 169 Highway.

- Verified patient on 3/11

Great experience at the urgent care today. The only drawback was the waiting time. However, I loved that you can leave and one of the office staff will call you when they are getting ready to call you back into a room. I was very pleasantly surprised with my visit today.

- Verified patient on 9/17

Friendly and helpful staff. Communicative. Honest. My first visit to an urgent care. The doctor was genuine. I didn’t leave feeling like nobody really cared. I left feeling taken care of

- Verified patient on 8/5

It was frustrating not being able to come in on a “walk-in” basis. What is the point of urgent care if you can’t be seen on the same day. We had to schedule an appointment for the following day but still ended up waiting for 45 minutes until we were seen because in an “emergency” who came in before us. This is a far cry from the service we have received in the past. The staff is still amazing. But we will look at other urgent care providers in the future

- Verified patient on 8/11

Everything was great, like always. Except for the medical assistant/LPN who seems to have a major attitude every tine we come in. He’s very rude and unfriendly. Almost getting to the point where we will find another urgent care to go to even though that one is really close to our house. It’s happens numerous times when I’ve brought my kiddos in and also it’s happened to my boyfriend when he’s also brought our kids in.

- Verified patient on 2/19

My family & I have been to this location 3 times now, each time for rapid Covid testing. I appreciate that we’ve been able to stay in our car & have the staff come to us. Each one has been receptive, attentive & thorough. At our most recent visit, it was suggested my son have flu & strep testing in addition to Covid, & it’s a good thing because his strep test was positive & the doctor came out to deliver the news. I would recommend My Doctor Urgent Care to others, & I have.

- Verified patient on 10/25

I got in here quickly and was seen by the PA before I had time to finish the paperwork. Tuan was great and gave me subscriptions for bronchitis. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I'll definitely go here if I need urgent care again.

- Verified patient on 3/7

I found My Doctor Urgent Care 4-5 years ago and I have always received great, timely care when needed. Recently, I tried the virtual Visit from home instead of driving to the office and it was so easy and convenient! I highly recommend My Dr Urgent Care. I don’t use any other urgent care for myself. I also recommend downloading the SOLV app, booking an appointment when necessary, and then wait for a text message when your appointment comes up. You then click the link in the text from the physician to jump right into the call. Using virtual visits is a great way to prevent the spread of COVID and keep yourself and healthcare providers from spreading any colds/viruses/illness.

About Urgent Care

Urgent care is Tulsa'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 Tulsa-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.
