Urgent Care

Not all health care issues appear during normal clinic hours. If you are facing an immediate, but non-life-threatening, health care issue the physicians at Mizzou Urgent Care can help. Mizzou Urgent Care treats all ages, but if your child needs urgent care, consider visiting our Pediatric Urgent Care at MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Some reasons to visit urgent care include:

  • Ear infections with pain and/or fever
  • Sore or strep throat
  • Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting
  • Mild asthma attacks
  • Non-severe bleeding
  • Minor cuts or burns
  • Hives and rashes
  • Lice, scabies or ringworm
  • Pain with urination

More serious illness and injury that may require treatment at the emergency room include:

  • Serious broken bones, such as the leg or arm
  • Severe or unusual bleeding that will not stop
  • Sudden inability to see, move, or speak
  • Choking or trouble breathing
  • Possible poisoning
  • Unconsciousness
  • Fainting
  • Convulsions or prolonged, repeated seizures
  • Drug overdose
  • Major injuries
  • Severe pain
  • Suspected heart attack or stroke
