Facility Overview

At our Urgent Care in the Essentia Health St. Mary's-Detroit Lakes Clinic, you don’t need an appointment. Get care for illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening but may need X-rays and/or lab tests that require a blood draw. Care is provided by doctors, nurse practitioners, or physician assistants.

If you have a primary care doctor, call your clinic to see if a same-day appointment is available. If not, visit our Urgent Care without an appointment.
