At a Cleveland Clinic Express Care® Clinic or Urgent Care Clinic, you can get walk-in convenience and the treatment you or a family member needs as soon as possible from our board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. No appointment is necessary, and we offer convenient locations throughout northeast Ohio.

Our Express Care Clinics provide easy access to cost-effective treatment for patients ages 2 years and older for common medical issues including:

  • Cold, cough, and flu symptoms, viral infections
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Diarrhea
  • Earache

  • Minor aches and pains (without serious injury)
  • Minor burns
  • Minor injuries - sprains, strains, minor joint pain
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Sinus infection
  • Skin injuries not requiring suturing*
  • Skin rashes - poison ivy, ringworm, shingles, scabies, impetigo

If you have chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, a severe headache, broken bone, or other serious problems, please go to the nearest emergency department or call 911.

Not sure where to go for care?

Express Care Clinics are not the right choice for wounds needing stitches or excessive bleeding! In that case, please visit one of our emergency rooms immediately. In non-emergency situations, you can also see a provider with a virtual visit from your laptop, tablet or smart phone using the MyClevelandClinic (TM) app.

Have questions about payment?

Most insurance plans are accepted. Payment, including co-pays, is required at time of service.

In addition to Express Care Clinics, Cleveland Clinic also offers online express care options that you can access without having to travel to a facility to see a physician in person.

MyClevelandClinic ® 

Cleveland Clinic Express Care virtual visits are simple, affordable online services that let you see a healthcare provider for nonemergency concerns via your smartphone (iOS and Android), tablet or computer. Once you are connected to your virtual visit, a healthcare provider will review your history, answer your questions and at their discretion diagnose, treat and even prescribe, when appropriate, medication. If you receive a prescription, we’ll send it straight to your pharmacy. Virtual visits on demand are available to patients who reside in Ohio, Florida or Nevada, age 2 and up.
