UAB Medicine Urgent Care


UAB Medicine Urgent Care offers convenient access to both UAB Medicine physicians and Advanced Practice Providers when you need to see a provider quickly for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. We offer walk-in appointments seven days a week, with lab and x-ray services available onsite. When you need to see a provider now, but it's not an emergency, choose UAB Medicine Urgent Care.

UAB eMedicine
UAB eMedicine is a new way to access the expertise of UAB clinicians from anywhere – twenty-four, seven. This service provides online diagnosis and treatment for many common conditions, such as colds, allergies, bladder infections, pink eye, and more. The online interview only takes about 5 minutes, and a diagnosis will be provided within an hour if your visit is submitted during normal eMedicine hours. You will be charged the $25 fee only if we can safely diagnose your condition; if not, you will receive a referral for additional care. It’s quick and easy and you’ll be on the road to recovery without a trip to the clinic.
