Besides treating my injuries and illnesses, what other services do you have at your urgent care center?

East County Urgent Care is equipped with a digital x-ray that can take images of your injuries to look for fractures. If you suffer a terrible fall, sprain, or strain, an x-ray is often needed to find these hidden broken bones. An undiagnosed fracture can lead to longer recovery time and more expensive medical bills. If you feel you have the flu or strep throat, we have tests available that can confirm the diagnosis. Once confirmed, the proper medications can be prescribed to help treat your illness. You can also depend on our location if you need quick, accurate, and confidential STD testing. After an x-ray or a lab test, we will review with you all images and results. Upon request, we can also send copies to a doctor of your choice.

Can I get a physical at East County Urgent Care?

Yes! Our center can also help you if you need a DOT Physical or an Immigration Physical. Doctors are certified to administer these specialized physicals. Our on-site lab allows us to process any required lab tests and we keep most of the needed vaccines onsite if they are necessary. We’ll give you a full report of your examination and can also forward it to your regular doctor upon request.

No appointment is needed for any of these physicals, making us an ideal choice if you are up against a deadline to submit a completed physical. We have helped many who needed a physical finished the day before a deadline, including many children who forgot to bring home their physical forms in the first place. We can ensure you don’t miss out on an activity and can safely participate!
