When you need prompt medical attention for an injury or illness that is not life-threatening and cannot wait for an appointment with your regular physician, Pardee Urgent Care locations are a great option for you and your family. They are not intended, however, for serious, life-threatening emergencies requiring the full services of a hospital. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please visit the Pardee Emergency Department or call 911.
