Urgent Care vs. Primary Care

 

Lowcountry Urgent care is a commonplace to use for acute issues when you are sick, have an accident, injury, or need quick care without having to plan an appointment. We can help you with primary care needs when you may be between providers, unable to get an appointment with your PCP, or don’t have a PCP. We can manage a variety of medical conditions and are happy to help you maintain your health.

 

How can I pay for my visit?

 

We accept all debit/credit cards, cash, or check. We also accept major insurances, medicare, and in-state Medicaid!
