Planning a visit to Kauai Urgent Care is now easier. A new online self-scheduling portal allows patients to secure a time slot up to 24 hours in advance at Kauai Urgent Care, located at 4484 Pahee St. in Lihue.
While walk-ins are still welcome, reserving a spot online can help you plan ahead and is more convenient when you’re not feeling well. Reserved times are approximate and wait times may vary. The clinic can treat most conditions and illnesses that are not life-threatening, including:
- COVID-19, colds, fever or flu.
- Sprains and strains.
- Cuts, scrapes and burns.
- Eye, ear, sinus, skin or urinary tract infections.
- Strep throat.
- Sports-related injuries.
- Minor broken bones.
“Offering online self-scheduling will make it easier and more convenient for both residents and visitors to access Kauai Urgent Care.” Said Jen Chahanovich, president and CEO of Wilcox Medical Center and CEO of Kauai Medical Clinic.
Kauai Urgent Care also offers various imaging and laboratory services on-site. The clinic is staffed with board certified emergency medicine physicians and is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Urgent care clinics are ideal for situations when a patient’s primary care physician is unavailable. Patients are reminded that an urgent care clinic is not the same as an emergency department, which treats life-threatening illnesses and conditions such as stroke, heart attack and severe injuries. For emergencies, Wilcox Medical Center’s Emergency Department is open 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
