Skip the ER. Visit Total Access Urgent Care.

Patients with and without insurance rely on the emergency department as a source of primary care, so hospitals are often overcrowded. Dr. Matt Bruckel, emergency medicine physician, founded Total Access Urgent Care to give patients an alternative to the fundamentally broken emergency medicine system. Total Access Urgent Care (TAUC ®) provides the unique urgent care experience of a walk-in medical facility which offers many of the same services as the emergency room.
