Services at Medhattan Urgent Care

If you’re sick or hurt, experts at NYU Langone Medhattan Urgent Care are available seven days a week to diagnose and manage illnesses and injuries.

Diagnostic Care and Exams

Conditions managed by our doctors include the flu, pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, eye infections, skin infections and abscesses, asthma, migraines, and gastroesophageal reflux.

We also treat people who have a fever, back pain, rashes, and allergies. We offer routine vaccinations, such as the flu shot, as well as travel vaccinations. All inoculations are administered by certified clinical health professionals.

We also provide referrals for substance abuse and mood disorders, such as depression and anxiety.

Physical Exams

We provide same-day annual physical exams as well as camp, school, and pre-employment physicals. Physical exams are available seven days a week for adults and children. An appointment is not required.

Please check with your insurance company regarding coverage of annual physicals performed at urgent care centers.

Injury Care

If you have a minor injury, including one that is due to a work-related incident, we provide onsite X-rays and lab testing. We treat people with sprains and strains, sports injuries, fractures, burns, and lacerations. All casting, splinting, sutures, and wound care is done by our board certified physicians and physician assistants.

Gynecologic and Urologic Care

Our physicians and physician assistants provide discreet testing and treatment of all gynecologic emergencies. This includes the treatment of vaginal infections and pregnancy testing. We also provide prescriptions and refills.

We care for women in the first trimester of pregnancy who are experiencing symptoms such as extreme morning sickness and dehydration.

We provide care to men and women who have urinary tract infections and hemorrhoids. We also offer testing for sexually transmitted diseases, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

If you prefer a female physician, please call ahead, and we will make an appointment for you.

Pediatric Care

Children age three and older are seen in a private, kid-themed exam room. We treat conditions such as strep throat, asthma, croup, ear infections, sinus infections, and conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye. We also provide nebulizer breathing treatments, ear wax removal, routine and travel vaccinations, and suturing and casting for cuts, sprains, and fractures.

Travel Medicine

We offer preventive medications and international travel vaccinations for all destinations, and we can help you figure out which vaccinations you need based on where you are going. Common vaccinations we offer include those for meningitis, polio, hepatitis A and B, tetanus, and typhoid. Medhattan Urgent Care is designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a yellow fever vaccination clinic.

Laboratory Services

Many laboratory services are available onsite, and some test results are ready in just minutes. Tests we perform include the following:

  • blood testing
  • a rapid complete metabolic panel to test for kidney and liver function
  • rapid creatine phosphokinase (CPK) testing to assess any damage to muscle tissue
  • amylase testing for pancreatitis
  • urinalysis
  • testing for the flu, HIV, strep throat, and mononucleosis

We also provide X-ray, ultrasound, and electrocardiogram (EKG) testing. An appointment or referral is not necessary.

Follow-Up Care

If your medical issue requires follow-up care with a primary care physician, gynecologist, or other specialist, we refer you to a doctor from our extensive network at NYU Langone. We can find the right doctor for you and help secure an early appointment.
