If you are experiencing persistent back pain then getting checked by one of our physicians at WellCare Urgent Care would be beneficial to solve this.


“He is a dedicated doctor who understands his patients well. Very friendly & easy to get a hold of him any time there is a need. I have been very happy & highly satisfied by his treatments & prescription. I would highly recommend him.” – Praveen M.

“Dr. Varkey is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. She is very knowledgeable, very personable, and friendly. She goes out of her way to take care of me and my kid’s issues whenever I see her.” – Kate

“Dr. Varughese is the most caring, competent and responsible of physicians I have ever encountered. My husband was very sick this past summer and Dr. Varughese went out of his way to secure care for him, while I was abroad. He was concerned about post- hospital symptoms and followed through to ensure he was not in danger. I would feel more secure if other physicians were like him.” – Athena M.

“Excellent doctor in every way. Listens. Is not too quick to just give out pills. Tries to get to the source of a problem. He treats you like a human being.” – Laurie B

Should I visit Urgent Care or Emergency Room?

Urgent Care

When you have any medical condition that is non-life threatening or have general medical needs, then an Urgent Care center can take care of these. WellCare Urgent Care takes care of a variety of medical concerns such as the flu, vaccinations, physicals, allergy symptoms, and more.

WellCare Urgent care is convenient because it is quick and cost-effective.

Average visit time: 1 hour
Average cost: $150

Emergency Room

Emergency care is necessary when you are suffering from a life-threatening condition. This could be a heart attack, stroke, head injury, or other trauma that requires more advanced treatment. If you or someone you love has a life-threatening illness or injury, then you need to call 911 and get to the closest Emergency Room.

Emergency Rooms, while the best option for serious trauma, do take time and are costly.

Average Time Spent: 4.5 hours
Average Cost Per Visit: $1700
