Urgent Care Medical Clinic Providing Non-Emergency Medical Services to Residents in Vestavia, AL & All Nearby Communities
Summit Express Urgent Care is the immediate care practice that residents of Vestavia, Alabama, and the surrounding communities turn to when they need to get well. We’re an urgent care facility dedicated to providing quality medical care while remaining friendly and expeditious. We understand that all non-emergency illnesses and health conditions, including the flu, strep throat, and minor lacerations, can slow you down, but you may have little time in a packed schedule to see your primary care physician, especially if you’ll need an appointment to do so. That’s precisely why we’re here: to provide you with the medical attention you need so you can get back to your busy lifestyle. We never require an appointment at our walk in clinic, and we encourage individuals of all ages to see us when they’re in a pinch for time. And though we’re an urgent family care facility, we’ll always make sure to forward your updated records to your primary care physician to avoid any gaps in your medical history.
What truly separates Summit Express Urgent Care from other walk in clinics in the Vestavia, AL, area is our outstanding staff. Our team is led by Dr. Nicol Pettway, who practiced emergency medicine from 1995 to 2013 and has been an urgent care physician since 2011. Dr. Pettway is board certified in internal medicine and has extensive experience providing emergency care services. Our other group physicians also are board certified, and we only use certified medical assistants as well, showing our level of commitment to providing exceptional medical care by trained and experienced professionals.
Summit Express Urgent Care also is committed to providing a remarkable experience for our patients. Whether you visit our walk in clinic for an annual medical check up, pediatric urgent care for your child, or even if you require emergency care for a minor surgical procedure, you’ll always be seen by either Dr. Pettway or another one of the experienced physicians on our staff, and in a timely fashion. You can rest assured that your visit to Summit Express Urgent Care will be thorough, but also fast, as we strive to have our patients in and out as quickly as possible. And, while walk-in patients are welcomed and encouraged, an appointment time can be obtained using our secure, online ZipPass®, which can further help reduce the amount of time spent at our urgent care facility. It’s just another way we try to make immediate care services as convenient as possible for residents of Vestavia AL, and the surrounding areas.
