It hurts. It itches. It’s swollen. Urgent Care is a great choice when you can’t wait for an appointment with your primary care provider, or when you need medical care after hours for non-life threatening conditions. No appointment necessary— just walk right in, hop in line remotely or log in through your Valley MyChart account for a virtual visit. Wait times are typically shorter, and co-pays and out-of-pocket costs are usually lower than an ER visit.
