Same-day care

During regular office hours, please call your primary care office before proceeding to an urgent care clinic.

Putting off a visit to the doctor for a cough or other symptoms shouldn’t happen because of long wait times or the inability to get an appointment that day. If you are experiencing any minor illnesses or injuries, like a sore throat or sprain, you can visit a Dignity Health office for same-day care.

To seek same-day care during regular office hours, please call your primary care physician's office first before proceeding to an urgent care clinic. A provider in your doctor's office may be able to see you quickly. However, walk-ins are accepted at some locations.

With Dignity Health, you have an alternative to in-person appointments: virtual visits. You’ll be able to talk with your provider via telephone or video chat to receive care from the comfort of your home that day.

Remember, call 911 immediately for any life-threatening emergencies.
