Berkeley Urgent Care


We provide comprehensive urgent care in one location. Staffed by physicians who have immediate access to onsite specialists, radiology and two laboratories, our location is the ideal choice for most non-life-threatening medical conditions. 

The seriousness and nature of your illness or injury determines where you should seek care. If you are concerned that you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.

Please indicate whether either of the following apply to the patient:

  1. Current respiratory symptoms (example: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, or any other new respiratory symptom).
  2. Received a positive COVID test within the past 14 days or has had close contact to a person diagnosed with COVID-19.

When To Visit Our Urgent Care Centers

The seriousness and nature of your illness or injury determines where you should seek care. While Urgent Care can handle most of the problems people come in with, some patients may end up being transferred to the Emergency Room if the clinician suspects or realizes that their symptoms may be due to a life-threatening cause or that the patient would be best cared for in the Emergency Room. Other problems may warrant a referral to specialists or back to your primary care problem as well.  

If you are concerned that you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
