Wait In the Comfort of Your Home
For non-life-threatening emergencies, we also offer InQuicker, a convenient online waiting service. It allows you to select your estimated arrival time and wait at home until then. When you’re time arrives, just check-in with the admitting nurse and you should be able to see a doctor in around 20 minutes.
If you’re experiencing an emergency call 9-1-1 immediately.
