Peninsula Urgent Care was established in 2020 by two physicians who were determined to combat the effects of the pandemic by offering the community access to convenient urgent care. Their experience with the devastating consequences of COVID-19 and the public’s limited access to healthcare in hospital emergency rooms, ICU departments, and primary care centers led them to take an active approach to serving the South Bay community.
Peninsula Urgent Care provides no-wait healthcare access to the South Bay community. Our passion for helping patients overcome health problems in an effective and efficient manner makes us a unique healthcare option. We are focused on keeping our community healthy and happy. We are proud to serve patients over the age of 12 years.
We provide more services than any other urgent care center in the area! We offer primary and urgent care, diagnostics, and aesthetic services – and much more. We are truly a one-stop shop for our patients’ healthcare and aesthetic care needs.
