MHM Urgent Care has a network of walk-in clinics in Southeast Louisiana offering ready access to healthcare services when hospital emergency departments or primary care physicians are out of reach. Each center is fully equipped with on-site laboratory, X-ray technology, and board-certified physicians in order to offer the highest quality treatment for a wide range of injury and illness.
What is urgent care? How is an urgent care clinic different from my primary doctor’s office?
An urgent care clinic can supplement the services your primary doctor can provide, from extended office hours and short wait times to a more comprehensive suite of services available on-site than in most primary doctor’s offices. While your primary doctor cares for multiple chronic medical issues, we treat the problems facing you today. This allows us to treat you expediently without the wait. Also, for the cases where your primary physician would have to send you to an ER for something non-life-threatening, urgent care can take out much of the waiting and expense.
