Emerson Health Virtual Urgent Care

Save Time and Stress with a Virtual Visit

Virtual visits with our licensed health care providers can save you time and stress, and help you get better faster without having to leave your home. Our experienced providers provide evaluation and treatment for urgent medical situations, including minor injuries, infections, and illnesses through a quick and easy video chat using your cell phone or computer. They can diagnose and treat you virtually and provide prescriptions. If your virtual visit determines you need to be seen in the office due to your condition, your appointment will be fast-tracked and your visit extended to in-person at no additional cost.

Schedule a virtual visit for:

  • Cold, flu, and cough
  • COVID-19 
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Mild asthma
  • Minor cuts/burns
  • New back pain (not related to an injury or a motor vehicle accident)
  • Painful urination
  • Pink eye (conjunctivitis) without vision loss/pain
  • Rash or skin infection
  • Sinus pressure
  • Tick or other insect bites
  • Tooth pain
  • Yeast infection (non- STD)


You do not need to be a patient of Emerson and your physician does not need to be affiliated with Emerson Health to be seen at our centers. Emerson Urgent Care accepts most health insurance plans. Please note, your insurance will be billed as a specialist office visit, and not an urgent care office visit.

Do I Need a Referral for My Urgent Care Visit?

Some insurance companies require you to get a referral from your primary care physician before you go to an urgent care center. We recommend you check with your insurance prior to being seen by Emerson Health Urgent Care.

Depending on your insurance health plan, if a referral is required and you do not request one from your primary care physician, then you could be responsible for all of the costs associated with your visit. Generally, the overall cost of visiting an urgent care facility is going to vary depending on the condition being treated.

Please ask our staff if you have questions about the referral process.

Experienced Healthcare Providers

The Emerson Health Urgent Care Centers are staffed by board-certified physicians, certified radiology technicians, and other medical professionals on staff at Emerson Hospital specially trained in acute care medicine for all age groups. Meet our Emerson Health Urgent Care staff.

Urgent care is not an emergency room.

If you are experiencing severe chest or abdominal pain, have sustained multiple injuries, or are unsure if your condition is serious, life threatening, or feel it may be worsening, then go directly to the nearest hospital or call 911.
