Urgent Care - Children & Adults
The Fremont Urgent Care Center of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) provides high-quality, prompt, medical care for both children and adults.
PAMF Fremont Urgent Care offers a faster, convenient and more economical alternative to going to the emergency room for minor, non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Our doctors and nurses work closely as a team to take care of each patient.
We offer care to PAMF and non-PAMF patients, including insured patients and uninsured patients who wish to pay for services with cash, check, Visa or MasterCard. We accept most insurance plans.

We offer same-day care for adults and children. This is a convenient service if your primary care physician is temporarily unavailable. All patients are referred back to their primary care physician for follow-up care to ensure continuity of care. If you do not have a primary care physician we can assist you in locating one.
We accent cash, personal checks, Visa and MasterCard, and co-payments from most HMO, PPO and traditional indemnity insurance plans, as well as Medicare and Medicare HMOs.
