Urgent care when – and where – you need it
You can’t predict when you might get sick or hurt, but WVU Medicine Urgent Care can provide the help you need for non-emergency health issues.
Our team treats people of all ages for a wide range of illnesses and injuries, including: abdominal pain, broken bones, coughs, colds, flu, infections, rashes, sprains, strains, and more. No appointment is necessary at our clinics. Video visits are also available.
Days, evenings, weekends, and holidays – we’re ready to get you back on track as quickly as possible. Most of our locations are open seven days a week, with on-site lab and x-ray services, for one-stop care by our friendly, professional staff.
And because we are part of WVU Medicine, we can easily refer you for follow-up or specialty care, if needed.
Most insurance plans are accepted. Some services are not available at all locations.
Urgent Care video visits
What is a video visit?
Adults and children (all ages) can video chat with an urgent care provider via a smartphone or webcam-equipped computer. This service is for patients who have minor medical conditions, and not for emergencies. For emergencies, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency care location.
With virtual urgent care, you or your child can*:
- receive an examination, diagnosis, and treatment from a WVU Medicine provider
- be treated for a variety of minor medical concerns such as cough, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, rash, allergies, and pink eye
- receive an after-visit summary containing a care plan and any follow-up instructions, including referrals for a specialist visit or diagnostic imaging
- have us notify your primary care physician to contact you about your visit
- have prescriptions recommended by your virtual urgent care provider sent to the pharmacy of your choice
*You must be physically located within West Virginia, Pennsylvania, or Maryland at the time of your video visit, due to licensure regulation
Conditions we treat with video visits
Just as you would find at your local urgent care clinic, our providers are available to evaluate and treat many common illnesses through video chat.
Keep in mind that video urgent care visits are not intended to replace routine appointments with your regular provider for needs such as annual physicals. A referral is not needed to see a virtual urgent care provider.
