When Bringing Minor Children for Treatment at Urgent Care

Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who can provide photo identification, current insurance, and (as required) proof of guardianship. If the minor is not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, the accompanying adult must have a notarized statement signed by the parent or guardian that authorizes treatment.

When Should You Come to Urgent Care?

Urgent care facilities, such as Fast Track, are ideal for treating the following conditions:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus infections
  • Colds or flu
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Coughs
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Diarrhea
  • Earaches
  • Minor broken bones
  • Rashes and other skin conditions
  • Sore throat
  • Sprains, strains, and fractures
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vomiting

When to Go to the Emergency Room

If you are experiencing any of the following, head to the nearest emergency room immediately:

  • Chest pain
  • Heart attack
  • Severe injury or trauma
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stroke
  • You can come in on your own schedule. Sometimes, making an appointment to see your doctor isn’t possible. Maybe you can’t miss class or don’t want to lose paid time at work. Fast Track Urgent Care’s walk-in clinics make it easy for you to get the medical care you need on your schedule—when it’s convenient for you. Both of our clinic locations are open until 9:00 p.m. on weekdays and are open on Saturday and Sunday.
  • You can use your insurance. We make our services even more convenient by accepting most major insurance plans. Check our provider page and call us if you don’t see your insurance company listed.
  • You don’t need to call ahead. There is no need to make an appointment at our walk-in clinics.
  • You can trust our staff. Our board certified doctors and clinicians provide the same level of care you would get at your own doctor’s office.
  • You won’t have to wait long. Typically, the wait at Fast Track Urgent Care is far shorter than the wait at the emergency room.
  • You can get your prescription filled while you’re here. Both of our walk-in clinics have on-site pharmacies, saving you a trip to the drugstore.
