Same-day appointments

Need an appointment today and can't wait?  We got you covered. Same-day appointments are dedicated to caring for patients who have minor conditions, injuries or illness that require attention, but are not life-threatening and not serious enough to warrant a visit to the emergency room. Same-day appointments are open 7 days a week by simply calling 715-268-8000. 

Please note: Walk-ins needing immediate, urgent or emergent care will be treated in the emergency room.
