Walk-in and Urgent Care

Need a healthcare provider right away? You don't need an appointment to get same-day care for minor illnesses and injuries at our convenient UC Irvine Health locations.

Our walk-in and urgent care centers treat patients who need care but are not experiencing a medical emergency. These clinical locations generally have lower co-pays than an emergency room, and patients can be seen faster.

In addition, our urgent care clinic in Tustin is open after business hours, on weekends and most holidays.

Our goal is to provide you and your children with the exceptional healthcare you expect from a leading university medical center — at times and places that meet your needs.

UC Irvine Health accepts most major insurance plans, including PPO, HMO, Medicare and private health plans. We also accept cash payments. To verify whether your insurance is accepted, call 714-456-7004.
