What is Urgent Care?
Urgent care is the delivery of ambulatory medical care in a facility dedicated to the delivery of medical care outside of
a hospital emergency department, usually on an unscheduled, walk-in basis. 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.

Extended length visits
We schedule generous appointment times to insure that you are not rushed in and out of the office, and that all your questions are answered and concerns addressed.
Flexible appointment scheduling
The schedule is structured so you can usually be seen the same day or the next day after you call. Many of our patients are busy and time-pressured. We work diligently to accommodate your scheduling needs.
Minimal waiting times
Of course, on rare occasions emergencies do come up, but most often patients are seen right on schedule. Our waiting room has the most comfortable seating in San Ramon. Nonetheless, our staff strives to maintain an efficient schedule so that our patients can be seen quickly.
Prompt prescription refills
If you need a medication refilled, contact your pharmacy or call us. Either way, we will authorize your refills the same day, except in certain rare circumstances.
FOCUS ON WELLNESS
At Walnut Creek Urgent Care we advocate health promotion, not just the treatment of disease. We address diet, sleep, exercise, mood, and energy along with routine medical problems. We provide guidance on physical activity, vitamin and mineral supplementation, and lifestyle changes. We manage diabetes, hypertension, depression, and high cholesterol with great care and precision, using scientifically validated, research-based methods.
For your convenience, we have made all of our required forms available on-line. We encourage you to download and complete these forms prior to your scheduled visit. Forms are located on the top right of this page.
