Playa Marina Walk In Urgent Care Center provides the following services:


Urgent Care

Urgent Care is walk-in medical service for conditions which can't wait for an appointment, but are not emergencies. Urgent Care centers do not replace long term primary physician care. If we spot serious symptoms, we will refer you to a specialist or emergency room in the area.

Urgent Care services include:

  • cuts
  • burns
  • sprains
  • colds/flu
  • ear infections
  • sore throats
  • rashes
  • sunburns
  • animal/insect bites
  • asthma
  • urinary tract infections
  • dehydration
  • back pain

Urgent Care vs. Emergency care

Urgent Care bridges the gap between primary physicians and emergency rooms. You receive the professional care of family and emergency medicine doctors without a long wait or high cost. We will also refer you to specialists if the need exists. However, if you feel that the condition is life threatening, then go to the nearest emergency room.
