Coronavirus / COVID-19
Currently we do not have testing available at Integrative Urgent Care.
We will update the website when test kits and protective equipment for staff are available at Urgent Care. We are in process of setting up telemedicine evaluations for patients with upper respiratory infection symptoms to prevent spread to other patients and staff.
These are unprecedented times and Integrative Urgent Care is dedicated to helping our local community understand more regarding you and your family’s wellbeing. This is a dynamic process and we will provide updates as information changes.
