QuickCare At Lakes Regional

The QuickCare clinic provides same-day appointments with local, experienced family medicine physicians and nurse practitioners for patients with common, non-emergent health concerns such as earache, allergies, nausea, minor burns or cuts, or cold or flu symptoms. It is an excellent resource when you don’t need an emergency room or can’t get into your regular doctor.  QuickCare services are available Monday through Thursday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Although walk-in appointments may be available, it is always best to call ahead to ensure the availability of openings. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment at the QuickCare clinic, call 712-336-3750.

If you have any emergent health concerns such as those listed below, call 911 or visit the nearest Emergency Department immediately:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Major burns/cuts
  • Complications from pregnancy
