Urgent Care

At Mill Creek Family Practice, our goal is to provide you with the care you need, when you need it. That includes the treatment of minor emergencies, including illnesses and injuries.

We have extended office hours, including nights and weekends, and are open 7 days a week. During office hours, there is always one or more providers who are on-call to treat injuries and illnesses which need to be seen on the same day. Walk-in patients are also welcome.

For Major Emergencies—situations which may result in loss of life or limb—call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room immediately.
