San Diego Urgent Care Clinic - Perlman Clinic

Urgent Care in San Diego

At Perlman Clinic, we strive to be a medical home that is centered around our patients. In order to deliver high quality care to the San Diego community, we have built an infrastructure that caters to patients who want to be seen immediately, but do not have a medical problem serious enough for them to go to the emergency room. Our San Diego Urgent Care program is able to provide reliable, prompt medical treatment for minor injuries and illnesses that do not require hospitalization but still warrant immediate attention. We understand that when an individual is sick or injured, the last thing that they should worry about is where they can be treated or how long they’ll need to wait.

Why Urgent Care?

Throughout the United States, urgent-care centers have been rapidly expanding due to their accommodations of lower visit costs and shorter wait times compared to an ER visit. At Perlman Clinic, we try our best to cut all of our patients’ wait times in half, in line with our goal of providing fast and compassionate treatment. We understand that many of our patients would like to obtain the medical services that they need as quickly as possible, and by coming to our offices, they can avoid the multi-hour wait times of emergency rooms. We differentiate ourselves from other San Diego urgent care clinics by guaranteeing longer visits with our doctors so that the patient can feel comfortable and confident in the medical services that they are receiving. Perlman Clinic focuses on long-term and preventive treatment, to maintain & protect our patients’ health and prevent disease.

When to go the Emergency Room

If you are experiencing a life-threatening injury or illness, please call 911 immediately or head straight to the emergency room. We’ve listed a few of the most common injuries & illnesses that require a visit to the ER below:

  • A hard time breathing
  • Severe diarrhea or vomiting
  • Confusion
  • An onset of dizziness, vision changes, or weakness
  • Pain or pressure in the chest
  • Bleeding that can’t be controlled
  • Vomiting or coughing up blood
  • Having trouble breathing

What We Treat: Minor Injuries & Illnesses

If your injury or illness is not life-threatening, many minor medical events can be treated at an urgent care facility like Perlman Clinic, where we can provide shorter wait times and lower costs than the ER alternative. Many of these conditions develop from the everyday wear and tear, overuse, or an injury. If left untreated, these injuries sometimes can progress to serious complication.

At our clinic, patients are assessed, diagnosed, treated appropriately by a team of highly qualified and experienced doctors, specialists, & nurse practitioners.

What We Treat:
Our providers treat a wide range of urgent and acute concerns for all ages, with no appointments needed:

How It Works

Perlman Clinic provides consultations and treatment for a wide range of minor injuries. We provide fast, premium, and affordable care to our patients, both through appointments & walk-ins. If your injury is serious, follow-ups for further treatment or referrals to specialists are scheduled.

By selecting the Perlman Clinic as your urgent care clinic, you are not only selecting a doctor but also an advocate and friend. Our physicians are always on call to serve your needs in the event of a minor injury or any other related problem requiring immediate attention.

When you need medical attention as soon as possible, Perlman Clinic has three convenient locations and offers walk-in service so you can always fit superb healthcare into your schedule. Just make sure to bring a valid form of identification, your insurance card (not required), and a method of payment. Although we can see you if you arrive without an appointment, we always prefer that our patients schedule with us ahead of time to be certain we can fit you in. Please call us at (858) 554 1212 or email if you have any questions.
