Current Wait Time

The time you reserve is not a guarantee due to other emergencies that might arise between time of scheduling and actual arrival to the clinic

  • UNC Urgent Care Flowers will be open seven days per week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to focus on patients with acute care needs (severe but short-term needs such as congestion, cough, headache, etc.).

COVID-19 Testing

*Now Offering Rapid COVID-19 Testing*

UNC Urgent Care now has COVID-19 diagnostic testing available, including rapid testing. Testing requires a provider evaluation and generally is appropriate for individuals who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Our providers will determine if COVID testing is right for you. The COVID-19 diagnostic tests check for a current infection by detecting the genetic material of the virus in respiratory secretions. Separate billing applies.

*At this time, UNC Urgent Care does not offer COVID-19 antibody testing (which indicates whether the patient has been infected in the past).*
