Why Choose Georgia Urgent Care?

We are not a regular urgent care clinic. Georgia Urgent Care is staffed by emergency medicine specialists. This means that we are better equipped to treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries than any other clinic. Most other clinic are staffed by primary care physicians who will send you to another specialist depending on your injury. This is not the case with us. Because our staff is trained in emergency medicine, we can diagnose and treat even the most severe injuries. 

 

What Services Do You Offer?

We offer a wide range of services for adults and children. We have many on site diagnostic testing services including X-rays. We can test for most illnesses including strep, flu, and urinary tract infections (UTI). Please check out our Services page for more complete list.
