Urgent Care

When you are sick or in pain, you should not have to wait days for an appointment or sit for hours in a busy urgent care or emergency department. At WellKC, we offer same-day appointments when you need them, and you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home (or bed)! We will provide you with the highest level of care through a prompt, convenient, virtual appointment. 

If you ever need an urgent care appointment, but don't see a same-day opening or a time that works for you on our online scheduling platform, just text us at 913-213-1352! 

 

WellKC is based in Johnson County, Kansas, but we offer virtual appointments to adults (18 and older) anywhere in the state of Kansas. Text our office or request an appointment above for a virtual appointment today! 

What happens during an Urgent Care appointment?   We will assess the urgency and severity of your condition to be sure you do not need emergency care. We will also determine if you may need lab work or other testing to verify or further evaluate your symptoms or health problem. After diagnosing the cause of your symptoms, we will decide on a treatment plan together. This may include self-care instructions, over-the-counter medications, dietary or activity modifications, or prescription medications.  Just text us or request an appointment above whenever you need a prompt urgent care appointment.

When should I seek an Urgent Care appointment?   You should seek urgent care for issues such as acute illness, minor injuries, acute pain, or chronic disease flares. During your virtual urgent care visit at WellKC, we will focus on quickly and efficiently diagnosing your issue, and we will provide treatment to ease your symptoms, prevent complications, and promote healing.

What conditions can be treated through an Urgent Care appointment? At WellKC, we provide same-day, virtual, urgent care appointments for a wide range of pressing health problems.
