Our Urgent Care Services
Patients visit urgent care clinics like ours for quick treatment of acute or chronic illnesses and injuries, including on-the-job injuries and minor wound care.

At Cardinal Urgent Care, our urgent care services include:
If you have been exposed to diseases like the flu, COVID-19, mononucleosis, or more, we have tests available to pinpoint exactly what is going on so we can prescribe the correct treatment to help you heal and reduce spread of these infectious diseases.
There are different types of abrasions and different levels of burns. Visit Cardinal Urgent Care to find out which is serious enough to require care and treatment. This can help you prevent infection, blood loss, and long-term damage.
We often treat infections that have evolved into abscesses, cysts, or boils. The affected area is cut open and drained of bacterial fluid to reduce pain and allow antibiotics to be more effective.
EKG tests measure the electrical activity of the heart. Our providers may recommend an EKG to help determine or rule out potential causes of symptoms such as chest pain, heartbeat irregularities, blood flow restrictions, and other types of cardiac distress.
Medication management helps patients understand how, when, and why to take medicine for various conditions. We offer the necessary guidance, including information about dosage, timing, and route of delivery to maximize effectiveness and minimize side effects or other problems.
Our clinic is equipped with a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine to take images of structures inside the body. This can help your medical provider identify even the smallest of fractures or rule out other sources of your pain or other symptoms, foreign bodies, pneumonia, and more.
If you have a fracture, a splint or partial cast can immobilize the injured area, giving it the correct amount of support to facilitate healing in all the right places.
For those with asthma or other respiratory diseases, nebulizer treatments deliver medicine into the lungs by converting liquid medication into a mist that is breathed in through a special tube or mask.
When too much wax builds up in your ears, it can cause pain, health, and hearing problems. Cardinal Urgent Care providers can gently flush your ears to remove excess wax buildup for you.
Intravenous fluid administration is when medicine and other fluids are administered directly into the bloodstream. This can provide immediate relief and can help regulate the amount and flow of needed medication.
Knowing your sexual health status can help protect you and your loved ones. We offer a range of STD tests in a judgement-free zone.
We offer accurate pregnancy testing in a comfortable environment, so you are 100% sure if you’re pregnant or not.
