Vaccination for Seasonal Flu
Our office offers seasonal vaccines that help to prevent outbreaks of influenza. We encourage our patients to get their flu vaccines at least twice a year.
5 Benefits Urgent Care Offers
1. Competitive Rates – Compared to a visit to the emergency room at the hospital, our urgent care facility in Venice is a far more affordable option.
2. Follow Up Care – When you visit Venice Urgent Care our physicians conduct follow up care to ensure you are healthy and comfortable after your initial visit.
3. Onsite Medication – At Venice Urgent Care you don’t have to make your way to a pharmacy after a visit because we provide in-house medication for prescriptions our doctors write.
4. Physicians – When you come to our urgent care in Venice you get to see an actual doctor with years of medical experience; whereas at most hospitals, you see a nurse or physician’s assistant first.
