We know medical issues can happen anytime, not just during normal business hours. Deciding whether your sickness or injury is serious enough for the emergency room can be tough when you feel sick or are in pain. While the hospital’s emergency department is prepared for every kind of medical condition, Ochsner Lafayette General’s urgent care centers are a great place to visit for medical needs that are urgent, but not life threatening. 

Ochsner Lafayette General Urgent Care - Carencro provides treatment for common illnesses and minor injuries. Our urgent care centers see patients on a first-come, first-served basis with limited wait time. Ochsner Lafayette General has four convenient walk-in clinics in Acadiana.

When you visit Ochsner Urgent Care, you receive the support of the entire Ochsner network. Your electronic medical record is accessible to Ochsner clinicians systemwide and to you online, so that we can work together to keep you well.

Patients scheduling via Find Urgent Care Now do not skip the waiting line, nor will they be seen ahead of individuals in the waiting room or impact others' wait times. Ochsner urgent care locations operate on a first-come, first-served basis. If there are many patients with high severity emergency conditions, your projected treatment time may be delayed.
