Urgent Care Naples, FL
First Care’s urgent care center in Naples, FL, has been serving the local community since 2012. We provide urgent care services because we know that illnesses and injuries can strike at any time. We also know that it can often take days – or even weeks – to schedule an appointment to see your “regular” doctor or specialist. Of course, in these situations, a hospital emergency room is always available, but this option usually involves sitting for several hours in a waiting room filled with sick people. What’s more, ER visits are very expensive. First Care was established with all of this in mind. At our Naples walk-in clinic, it isn’t necessary to pay a significant premium to receive urgent care for a non-life-threatening illness or injury (for a true emergency, you should always call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest ER).
Consider that you can walk right into the First Care urgent care center in Naples, FL – no appointments are ever necessary – and receive prompt treatment for a variety of common, non-emergency conditions.

Why choose an Urgent Care Center instead of an Emergency Room?
If your injury is life threatening, then you should still call 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Room. However, for non-life-threatening injuries and conditions, you may be better off choosing an urgent care center. Here are three reasons why:
1. Get treated quickly
At the ER they have a duty to treat the most serious injuries first. This process is known as “triage”. This means that if your injury is less serious, that you will likely be asked to wait. By contrast, at our urgent care center in Naples, we do not treat life-threatening injuries, so we are more likely to treat your injury or condition sooner.
2. Save money
Whether you are paying by cash of via your insurance, our urgent care center is likely to be much more affordable than going to the ER. Hospitals are required to have an immense amount of expensive equipment required for complicated, life-threatening situations. Urgent care centers, by contrast, specialize in treating non-life-threatening injuries and illness, which means we can provide a high quality of care but at a more affordable price.
3. Combine it with your Primary Care
One of the great advantages of choosing First Care is that we provide both urgent care and primary care all under one roof. This means that our doctors and medical team have a more holistic, 360 degree view and understanding of your condition and past medical history, as we are likely to have treated you before. This is not only convenient for you, but also provides you with continuity of care.
