Making the Most of Your Visit

At Mill Creek Family Practice, we pride ourselves on providing personalized care for all members of your family and providing that care when you need it. We try our very best to balance maximizing our availability for all patients to be seen when they wish, and keeping spots open for patients who need to be seen more urgently. To do this, some appointment spots are reserved for more emergent or “urgent care” issues, particularly on evenings and weekends. Whenever possible, you will see your own care provider, but for urgent care issues you may see the physician on call for that day.

Examples of situations which require urgent care and a same day appointment:

  • Acute body pain
  • Acute diarrhea
  • Allergic reaction
  • Allergies (severe, can’t wait)
  • Any bodily injuries
  • Any swelling of body parts
