Urgent and Same-Day Care

When getting better can't wait

If you're sick or injured, the last thing you want to do is wait to see a doctor.

From walk-in care, same-day appointments to online visits with OnCare, we’ll take good care of you. If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 9-1-1 or visit one of our emergency rooms

1. Fairview Urgent Care, Express Care or Acute Injury Clinic
Choose Fairview Urgent Care when you need non-emergency care for minor illness or injuries, such as a broken bone, cut, sore throat, ear infection, sinus infection, minor burn, bladder/urinary tract infection (UTI), or other general illnesses and discomforts.

The clinic locations below offer urgent care services. Each site has its own hours of operation including holiday hours.

Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis, and depending on the severity of the illness or injury. You can find current estimated wait times here, as well as on the individual clinic pages. This is just an estimate and can change depending on the number of people arriving at the same time. We always do our best to see you as soon as possible.

Fairview Express Care
Fairview offers Express Care within the Elk River and Princeton Coborn's Superstores. Choose Express Care when you have non-emergency illness or injury. Express Cares offer flu, strep and UTI tests (but don't have on-site laboratories or X-rays). Most insurance accepted. Cash, checks and credit cards also welcome. See prices here.

Acute Injury Clinic  
Fairview Sports and Orthopedic Care in Blaine offers walk-in care, six days a week, for orthopedic injuries such as broken bones, strains, sprains or tears. Doctors who specialize in sports medicine will see you without an appointment. Learn more.
