Special thanks to:
- Dr. Harley Miller and his family

These individuals have donated or made available vital supplies that are currently almost impossible to get. Thanks to their work and kindness we can continue operating and assisting the public with urgent care at WUCC and via telemedicine for primary care during these challenging times.
Message For Our Patients
Our CAO Hugo De Oliveira ARNP was able to get toilet tissue for our established patients who are truly in need and are unable to obtain their own. This is directed ONLY to the elderly population of our patients that are above retirement age and those that have diagnosed immunocompromising comorbidities. We would like to supply them with a 4 pack of toilet paper rolls. What you would need to do is stop by our Urgent Care. Staff will bring the pack to your vehicle while our stock lasts. We will continue to search for more and try to continue this service and reduce exposure when possible.
** Attention **
If you are a patient in need of your regularly scheduled testosterone or B12 injection, you may either self-administer it at home after picking up from the pharmacy, or you may go to urgent care for your injection. If you need administration supplies such as the syringes and needles, please contact your provider by phone or e-mail and a prescription will be sent to your pharmacy.
Thank you for your cooperation!
