Fast & Friendly Illness Treatment to Help You Feel Better
Usually, injuries that bring someone to urgent care are the result of trauma from an accident and require immediate attention. If your injury is non-life-threatening, the best option for quick care is an urgent care center.
At Bayside Urgent Care Center, our medical team is ready to handle injuries that are not life-threatening. Open 365 days a year, Bayside Urgent Care Center is conveniently located in Clearwater, Florida. And we are always welcoming new patients, and appointments are not necessary.

- Chest pain
- Severe head injuries

If you need a CT or MRI scan, we will refer you to one of our preferred radiologists in the area.

During your appointment, you will be evaluated by a Bayside Urgent Care Center medical professional who will ask you about the symptoms you are experiencing. They will also perform a physical exam and check your vital signs. Depending upon the kind of illness you have, they may ask for testing like bloodwork, diagnostic imaging, or get throat or nose cultures.
