Urgent Care Q &A

The Urgent Care department of Elite Medical Center provide quick, quality care on a walk-in basis for minor medical emergencies; accidents such as cuts, burns, bruises, sprains or broken bones; and illnesses like cold and flu. We see patients of all ages, beginning at 2 months old. We have on-site capabilities for X-rays, lab tests (blood work, etc.) and more.

We are here for you five days a week in Lyman with extended hours to accommodate your schedule. You’ll receive the quality care you expect from a traditional doctor’s office with the added convenience of a medical center. 

It’s important to understand when you should visit your primary care physician, when urgent care is appropriate, or when you should seek treatment in the hospital emergency department. Anyone with a life- or limb-threatening illness or injury should seek treatment at the emergency department (ED). Those suffering chest pain or symptoms of a stroke should call 911. Pregnant women should seek care with their obstetrician or, in a pregnancy-related emergency, go directly to the ED.
