Total Access Urgent Care - TAUC

Total Access Urgent Care

Total Access Urgent Care (TAUC®) was founded by an emergency medicine physician in 2008 to provide fast, friendly, and affordable healthcare in every community. TAUC was fueled by the belief that we could provide an efficient and cost-effective alternative to an emergency room visit. In the ER, patients receive life-saving treatments but are often overwhelmed by unpredictable financial burden and frustrated by overcrowded waiting rooms. At TAUC patients spend less than an hour in the clinic on average and have access to on-site X-ray, CT imaging, ultrasound, lab testing, IV hydration, and much more – eliminating the typical exasperating emergency room experience.
