Urgent Care by Appointment

Early in his career, just to make ends meet, Dr. Gardner “moonlighted” in different emergency rooms and urgent care centers. He enjoyed the fast-paced, problem-solving environment and recognized the need for better urgent care services in the community. Many people are uninsured or between insurance coverage, or have a high deductible to pay before the insurance will pay for anything. A trip to a hospital-based ER can run up a bill into the thousands for simple problems like a tension or migraine headache, urinary tract infection, or flu bug.

OurĀ  staff can often accommodate an urgent-care patient within 24 hours, especially if they are already established patients. Please call 415-925-8888 to see if we can help with your particular concern.
