About TAUC

Emergency medicine physician, Dr. Matt Bruckel, founded Total Access Urgent Care (TAUC®) in 2008 on the brink of the world’s worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Many believed an independent urgent care would fail when competing with the mighty hospitals. Dr. Bruckel was fueled by the belief that the emergency medicine system was broken. In the ER, patients receive life-saving treatments, but are devastated by unpredictable financial burden, long waits, and impersonal care. Driven by its mission to create fast, friendly, and affordable health care in every community, TAUC has earned its ranking as the highest-rated health care team in St. Louis. In under one hour, 85 percent of patients are treated and discharged with medications in-hand. Teams at TAUC perform EKGs, x-rays, CT scans, and ultrasounds, all at an eighth of the cost of the ER. TAUC has cared for over one million patients and proudly serves the community 365 days per year.
