Frequently Asked Questions
Is it better to go to urgent care or ER?
It’s a quick decision: your body is suddenly racked with pain. But where do you go, to the doctor’s office or the emergency room? The difference between urgent care and emergency rooms is the severity of the health problem. If the condition is life-threatening, go to an emergency room. If the condition is a minor illness or injury, take advantage of the convenience and affordability of Instant Medical Care – Urgent Care Walk In Clinic has to offer!
How much is urgent care in Florida?
The fact is that urgent care clinics are very affordable alternatives to hospitals. Best of all, there’s usually no wait time and appointments aren’t needed for the most part. Anyone can walk in and get treatment. Economic reasons aside, the cost varies greatly from person to person. Urgent care typically charges you by your co-pay and the level of treatment you receive. As a rough estimate, you should expect to spend anywhere from $50 to $250 for an urgent care visit, but this really depends on several variables.

We accept cash, major credit cards and all major health insurance providers. If you want to find out more details, please feel free to call: 954-200-6001
What is the best time to go to an urgent care clinic?
The urgency of the situation may have a bigger impact on your decision as to when to visit the doctor than you expect. Most people choose an urgent care clinic over a general practitioner because they believe it will be less crowded and they can get in and out more quickly. And, for the most part, this is true. Also, consider clinics which are open particularly on Saturdays such as Instant Medical Care
