Urgent Care

Urgent Care

Some situations are not emergencies but require immediate medical attention. Urgent care is great for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries. We treat patients of all ages, from pediatric (3+ months) to seniors.

Appointments: You can schedule an appointment online, or by calling our office directly: 1-415-925-8865. For the convenience of our patients, our office is pleased to offer both in-person and telehealth appointments.
