Urgent Care

The Doctors Center means Urgent Care, Now!

The Doctors Center Urgent Care is the Coastal Bend’s solution for quality, effective medical care, at a moment’s notice.

Urgent care is the delivery of ambulatory care in a facility dedicated to the delivery of medical care outside of a hospital emergency department, usually on an unscheduled, walk-in basis. Corpus Christi Urgent care centers are primarily used to treat patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to an emergency room. The Doctors Center urgent care facilities were started by emergency room physicians and surgeons who responded to the public need for convenient access to unscheduled medical care. A large part of why urgent care is more affordable than other medical options is the efficiency of your visit and the nature of the urgent care services we provide. Much of the growth of urgent care facilities has been fueled by the significant savings in cost and time compared to a hospital emergency department visit. Urgent care saves time and money. Urgent care providers treat immediate non-critical problems quickly and efficiently. This takes less time and keeps the cost more affordable. Many managed care organizations (MCOs) now encourage their customers to utilize the urgent care option.
