Our goal is to make lives better... and Easier.
Waiting is a pain. At Dedicated Medical Center & Urgent Care, we treat every patient as promptly as possible and since we don’t treat emergencies, your wait time is considerably shorter than at the ER. Our centers specialize in family medical issues and urgent care, when your doctor is not available or when you need care that is not an emergency. We are less expensive than the ER, and our visit charges are inclusive of care. You will never receive a provider fee plus a facility fee or a fee from a physician that reviewed results or interpreted an exam. As part of the Dedicated Group, patients will have expedited access to all of our specialty practices, such as Dedicated Orthopedic Center and Dedicated MRI Center. We will refer you to the local ER, or to specialists if needed, and if your insurance permits us to do so. We will always encourage you to follow up with your primary care provider when they are available.
