Whether you’re a busy professional or parent who’s always on the go, trying to find time during the week to schedule a doctor’s appointment can be difficult. Also, you shouldn’t have to wait until Monday when you’re hurting or feeling unwell over the weekend.

The good news is, if you live in the Baton Rouge area and are looking for an urgent care open on Sundays, look no further than Coastal Urgent Care of Baton Rouge. We offer quality, convenient care on both Saturdays and Sundays.

Why are urgent care clinics open on Sunday?

Urgent care clinics open on Sunday fill a vital gap when you become sick or injured, but your primary care doctor isn’t available, and you can’t wait for an appointment.

Often, primary care doctors have full schedules and can’t always make time to see people on the same day. With Baton Rouge Urgent Care, you can get the high-quality medical care you need on the same day with no appointment required.

When should I visit an urgent care clinic?

Visit your nearest urgent care clinic when you have a sudden, nonlife-threatening health care need. We offer several high-quality, affordable, and efficient medical care services 7 days a week, including:

  • Colds, flu, and fever without a rash
  • Ear infections
  • Abdominal pain associated with a bladder or urinary tract infection
  • Stitches for cuts and bruises
  • Burns
  • Sprains, strains, and fractures
  • Splinters and foreign body removal
  • IV fluid hydration (e.g., for vomiting or persistent diarrhea)
  • Physical exams for work
  • Physical exams for school
  • On-site lab, electrocardiogram (EKG), and x-ray

Rapid COVID-19 Testing

We also offer rapid testing for individuals who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Results are typically available in 1-2 business days, which allows public health officials to detect the viral infection more quickly, decrease the spread, and start contact tracing earlier.

If you’re in need of a facility that offers urgent care hours on Sunday, please contact Urgent Care of Baton Rouge. We’re conveniently located between Highland and Burbank and open for walk-in appointments every day of the week.

Though our urgent care clinic is walk-in only, you may reserve a spot in line. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the number you’re given will only be an estimate. When you arrive, please come inside and go directly to the iPad in the lobby. Click that you have a reservation. The receptionist will call you to the window when it is your turn to complete the check-in process.

You can also save time if you have your paperwork filled out ahead of time. And don’t forget to confirm we’re an in-network provider on your insurance plan, so you can save time and unexpected out-of-pocket costs.
