Why Choose Urgent Care?

Injuries and illnesses often happen at inconvenient times. Minor issues like bumps and bruises can be taken care of at home, but what should you do if you require professional medical attention and your primary care physician is unavailable? A trip to see Dr. Chidi Uche at Jacksonville Total Care’s Urgent Care Clinic might be the answer for you.
