Urgent Care

Scripps Health Urgent Care in San Diego

For an urgent, but non-life or limb-threatening health concern, urgent care is often a convenient alternative to the emergency room. Our urgent care facilities offer accessible medical evaluation and convenient treatment for minor illnesses and conditions on a walk-in basis.

Urgent care can be used for common medical conditions where emergency care is not necessary. These include:

  • Mild sprains
  • Sore throat
  • A condition with a slow onset
  • A condition where the diagnosis is known, such as a urinary tract infection

Find out the difference between the ER and urgent care and where to get the best care for your condition. If possible, check with your primary care provider before seeking treatment.

Whenever a situation is life-threatening, call 9-1-1 immediately.
