Our family clinic offers walk-in services, so that you and your loved ones can save time and effort when you need fast medical attention.

  • Strep throat
  • Colds and flu
  • Cuts and bruises

If you are experiencing any life threatening symptoms, such as chest pain or heavy bleeding, it is best to go to a hospital emergency room for immediate attention.
