I loved the nurses aid / assistant but I felt like my experience with the doctor was a bit unprofessional.

Fast, easy, friendly and quality
Impressed with the level of professionalism of both the doctor and the nurse, also appreciated excellent bedside manners!
The doctor and all of the staff were very friendly. I did had to wait in the examination room for at least 30 minutes past my appointment time before the doctor arrived. It would have been nice to receive an explanation. Other than that, my experience was a good one and I do plan to return the next time I need immediate medical care.
Always pleasant there.

No long time wait
I do not know the names of the 3 that took care of my 3 year old daughter yesterday evening. I was so full of anxiety from no sleep in a few days and being so worried why she was so sick and in so much pain. We went to another multicare urgent care in the morning and the ARNP that was on the floor said her ears were so impacted with hardened wax he couldn’t even see if there was an infection. My daughter was visibly miserable and told me that the only option is to do an ear wash but he advised against it because it would be so painful that even adults can’t handle it and he sent us on our way with “give her some Tylenol”. Fast forward to coming to wood creek convenience care the ARNP on floor that evening, he assured me they would be able to take care of the ear wash and check for infection to get her healed up. We were in and out in a short amount of time. While the ear wash was scary for a moment, they treated her with such care she was thanking them for helping her ears feel better as they were working on it. He apologized whole heartedly for the way we were left so discouraged that morning especially since they are both multicare facilities. So please, whoever reads these reviews, please please please recognize the staff from the evening of January 15th for finally helping my baby girl. Thank you for being so kind to an overly frazzled mama. You guys are the real deal! I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. The Smithwick family
The workers were friendly. Good energy and vibes in the office.
I came in early for my appointment, so they were understanding and tried to get me in as early as possible.
Easy to get in and great staff!
The staff was very kind and respectful.
As i rated everything Five Stars - The experience was Exceptional, Fast service to Cleanliness!!! Will Select this location for all future needs.
Still waiting on Covid 19 Test results. Friendly staff and I would recommend it to whoever is traveling from Alaska to Puyallup. I am an Alaska resident visiting my babysister who lives up the street from the clinic. I would gladly visit your clinic in the future. 🤗🤗🤗
COVID-19 test went fine. But, printing out the 'summary' and my medication list using two pieces of paper stabled together calling them discharge papers was wasteful and just stupid. More paper to recycle I do not need. My printer has enough one sided copies. There was nothing to summarize. Great results showed up in My Chart 1.5 days later. Paper production was stupid.
In my opinion they need more training on insurance billing
I'm a first responder from out of state. I initially didn't feel comfortable going. But the staff was really pleasant and the MD listened to my concerns and not just try and rush me out the door
Great experience with Dr Weismann and team.
Great service. Fast turn around time getting corvid test result. Very much appreciate this!!
Wry friendly, efficient and clean
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.
