Visits to Urgent Care are walk-in and services are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. We aim to see patients as quickly as possible. Urgent Care is not an emergency facility, and you should call 911 or go to the nearest hospital for any life-threatening conditions.

During times when Urgent Care reaches patient capacity, we temporarily cannot accept any new patients, and we kindly ask patients to wait until capacity reduces.

UPDATE ON WALK-IN COVID-19 TESTING UNIT: The DotHouse COVID-19 Walk-In Testing Clinic closed on Friday, January 5th, 2024.

We will continue to have COVID-19 testing available but as an Urgent Care visit. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Can I be seen if I do not have insurance?

If you do not have insurance, one of our Financial Counselors can work with you to enroll you in a program. We are able to see clients without insurance, but in that case, costs must be paid out of pocket.


Do you see children?

Yes. Patients under 18 years of age who require Urgent Care can be seen 7 days a week.


Can I be seen if I am not a DotHouse Health patient?

We are able to see non-DotHouse Health patients, provided that your insurance company allows you to be seen at outside facilities. Our financial aid and registration staff can work with you to identify eligibility.
