Call Us First.

Coastal Medical offers Saturday sick appointments so you don't have to sit in the emergency room or walk-in clinic for hours when you are sick.

In a non-urgent situation, always call your Coastal Medical primary care physician when you are sick. Your physician knows you and your health better than anyone, he or she can evaluate your symptoms and give you the best advice, or ask you to come in for an appointment. 

If you need lab work or imaging, such as an an x-ray, CT scan or an ultrasound, we can also provide those services on a Saturday. Coastal Medical Imaging and Laboratory are open to serve all patients on Saturday. 

The most important message we want to share with you is to always call your Coastal Primary Care doctor first, doing so can:

  • Save you time
  • Save you money
  • Avoid misdiagnosis 
  • Keep you from having multiple costly and invasive tests
  • Ensure better end results for your health.

In a non-urgent situation, always call us first.

In an actual emergency, always call 911 or go to the emergency room.
