Urgent Care FAQs
California Urgent Care Center Answers Your Questions
California Urgent Care Center provides cutting-edge, family-friendly service in the Lodi and Stockton areas. Our urgent care practice is also opening a new location in Manteca.
We understand that seeking health care can be a confusing process. You may have questions about insurance, how to file an appointment online or how telemedicine works. Below, our California urgent care clinic answers your most common questions.
What Is an Urgent Care Center?
Urgent care centers, like ours, provide faster and less expensive medical care services than emergency rooms. Unlike an emergency room, urgent care centers treat health conditions that are non-life threatening.
Examples of health conditions we treat include falls, certain types of burns, sprains, certain asthma complications, ingrown nails, certain skin problems, broken bones and eye and ear infections. You can find out more about our services on our homepage.
Contact us if you want to determine whether we can treat your condition through a telemedicine or in-person appointment.
