Urgent Care Facility Orlando

GuideWell Emergency Doctors is an advanced urgent care facility in Orlando, Florida, focused on treating major and minor emergency and urgent care needs for the whole family.

Since we are a new medical facility, we wanted to share with you some information about why you should Here are the reasons why you should choose GuideWell Emergency Doctors the next time you or a member of your family has an unscheduled medical situation.

Affordable and Convenient

We are an affordable and convenient alternative to the hospital emergency room (ER) and can care for all ER related issues. We do this without the cost, wait time and hassle that come along with a typical ER environment. Our office environment is calm, clean and inviting.

Accommodate Your Schedule

GuideWell Emergency Doctors can also be used when your primary care physician can't accommodate your schedule, or if an event occurs after hours for when your primary care physician is not available. We make sure that no matter what care you receive from us, we communicate with your primary care physician every step of the way. We are open 7 days a week and on holidays.

Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians

All GuideWell Emergency Doctors Florida locations are staffed by board certified emergency medicine physicians and have the expertise to handle both major medical issues — such as chest pain, fractures, shortness of breath and internal injuries — as well as minor issues, like respiratory illnesses, ear and eye infections, and sports injuries, for adults and children of all ages.

Comfortable Facility

We also want to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible when you walk into our doors. That is why we have made sure our facility has a comfortable waiting with couches, exam rooms with space for your family and TV’s to pass the time, a children’s playroom, clean restrooms, and state-of-the-art medical and diagnostic equipment.

Friendly Staff

GuideWell Emergency Doctors has friendly staff that will greet you right away, and will assist you quickly with the check-in process. The wait times at our facility are minimal, so you will be able to be seen by one of our board certified emergency medicine physicians quickly.

Immediate Results with On-Site Testing

GuideWell Emergency Doctors not only does on-site testing with regards to lab, x-rays, CT scans and MRI’s, but since we have the right medical equipment right on site, we also have the ability to get the results immediately, resulting in getting you the right care, faster. This results in higher quality of care and saves time, as you don’t have to go to a traditional ER for testing, where it can take many hours and be very expensive to get the results you need.


All Costs are Inclusive

The difference between GuideWell Emergency Doctors versus other hospitals and ER’s is that after your visit, you will get a variety of bills, depending on the testing and care you received. You could get bills anywhere from a radiologist, from lab pathologist, from lab itself, from respiratory department, facility fees, and ER doctor professional fee.  At GuideWell Emergency Doctors, you will get only one bill, one number, and reliably one price, which is a third of the cost than an ER.  There is no money stress a month down the road when the bills roll in.


Board Certified Medical Doctors on Site

We are different from other urgent care facilities and walk-in clinics because we have doctors right on site, whereas other urgent care facilities may only have a Nurse Practitioner or Physicians Assistant. GuideWell Emergency Doctors is also AHCA, Joint Commission, and  COLA accreditation, which is a high quality standard only met by hospitals, not urgent care centers.
