KENNESAW, Ga., (June 23, 2022) – Urgent Team Walk-in Urgent Care has opened a center today on Jiles Road next to McDonald’s.
“Whether it’s a minor injury, vaccination, sports physicals or other wellness care, it’s important for families to have a high-quality healthcare option that is comprehensive and affordable,” said Ellis Harris, Vice President of Urgent Team. “Urgent care services are a fast, cost-effective option to replace the emergency room for non-life-threatening issues, or waiting to get an appointment with your physician. Urgent Team currently has urgent care center in Rome, and another center opening in Alpharetta in mid-August.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to serve the on-demand healthcare needs of the growing Kennesaw community,” said Becker. “Our goal is to meet and exceed the increasing need for quality care delivered in a convenient location at an affordable price. We like to say, when you need more than a Band-Aid, but less than a call to 911, we can help.”
When an illness or injury can’t wait, Urgent Team will offer family care, urgent care and occupational health services seven days a week with extended hours. For added convenience, walk-ins are welcome or patients can plan a same or next day visit online with Hold My Spot® or reserve a Telemedicine visit.

- Asthma and allergies
