Long before the summer vacationing families discovered the Outer Banks as a hot tourist destination, fishermen from across the country flocked to coastal North Carolina. With no roads to navigate, and no vacation homes to stay in, anglers would brave the makeshift sandy paths that ran along thebeaches, and would set up makeshift campsites whenever there was protection from the wind and waves. They went through great efforts to visit the Outer Banks for one reason: Exceptional fishing.
The slogan for this walk-in medical clinic is “We see everyone for almost everything.” It is also the only medical facility on the Outer Banks that takes appointments on weekends. And they really do treat just about anything, from well-women check-ups to skin cancer screenings to fixing broken bones. Same for vacation mishaps, whether its sunburn, jellyfish stings, snake bites, fish-hook removal, watersports injuries, or even a scary virus, Urgent Care has you covered. The medical practitioners even offer a choice of wound closure: stitches, staples or glue. An X Ray and lab are on site, and most health insurance is accepted. The Outer Banks Hospital is located across the street, in case things turn out to worse than it initially appeared. Appointments are encouraged for routine family and wellness care at the clinic.
