Urgent Care

North Shore Urgent Care is your best option when you need immediate care but are not facing a life-threatening emergency. Our experienced, compassionate staff are led by board-certified physicians and health care providers. Our urgent care center treats all patients; you do not need to be a patient of NSMC or NSPG.

Our new online reservation system lets you reserve your spot with just a click. We’ll give you an estimated waiting time and text you when it’s time to come over.
