Unfortunately, medical problems don’t always happen during office hours, and your primary care provider may not always be available. At some time, you may need the services of either the emergency room or an urgent care clinic. Urgent care is for illnesses or injuries that can’t wait until the next business day but do not require the resources of an emergency room.

When you come to the clinic, please bring your:
Driver’s license or photo ID
Insurance card (if you have one)*
List of your current medications

*If you do not have insurance, payment is expected at the time of service.



Cookeville Regional Urgent Care offers expert walk-in urgent care plus prevention and wellness services, DOT and sports physicals, lab services and more, with extended and weekend hours. We also offer a range of services for employers.

For your continuity of care, it is important that you have a primary care provider.* When you are sick, your primary care provider can be most helpful in that he/she has your health history and is able to make informed choices about your treatment and any testing that may be necessary.

*If you don’t have a primary care provider and would like to find one, please call the CRMC Find-A-Doctor line at 931-783-2571 or 877-377-2762 (877-DRS-CRMC).
