SDMG offers expanded urgent care hours

Slocum-Dickson Medical Group’s urgent care, laboratory, and radiology services are now open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.

SDMG expects that these hours, while still limited, will provide more convenience for patients (check out his comment is here) in need of urgent care services.

For added convenience and safety, patients can now check in for urgent care online by visiting and clicking on the “urgent care online check-in” button.

From there, patients will be able to select from a list of available appointment times and wait in the comfort of their own home. Patients will receive a text confirming their appointment time, as well as a reminder just prior to their reserved time.

The SDMG laboratory is also offering this same service.  Patients with lab orders will be able to schedule a time for their lab work using the online check-in system by visiting and clicking on the “Laboratory online check-in” button.

The lab provides a full range of pathology clinical services and a broad range of specialized tests to support the needs of primary care providers and specialists. The laboratory accepts orders from medical providers outside of the SDMG.

SDMG’s urgent care provides prompt, personalized medical care for individuals over 2 years old for minor (non life-threatening) health problems such as sprains, broken bones, cuts, backaches, job-related injuries, and common illnesses.

A board-certified physician is always on-site at SDMG urgent care.
