Fast Track Triage
Specializing in the treatment of non-emergency illnesses and injuries, our Fast Track is a walk-in option which provides the type of healthcare you expect to receive from your family physician, but after hours or on the weekends, when most physician offices aren't open. This also helps us prioritize the critical and the acute while helping keep wait times down.
