Sharp Community Medical Group CVS MinuteClinic
Convenience and care, anywhere you are.
At Sharp Community Medical Group, we understand the need for timely care when it comes to minor illness and injury. Whether you have the common cold or a child with a scraped knee, you no longer have to worry about scheduling appointments or long wait times.
We've partnered with CVS MinuteClinic® at 16 locations in San Diego County and Temecula so you can visit the clinic nearest you for the same low copay* as your primary care doctor visit, regardless of your health plan.
All MinuteClinics offer convenient evening and weekend hours and are staffed by experienced nurse practitioners who can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses, minor injuries, skin conditions and more. If you're unsure whether you require urgent care services, contact your primary care doctor.
*Deductibles and coinsurance amounts apply when applicable.

Keep in mind that MinuteClinics offer some services — such as smoking cessation and weight-loss programs — that may not be covered by your health plan. Call your health plan member services department to verify coverage.
Can I go to a MinuteClinic if I need to be seen right away and can't get a same-day appointment with my primary care doctor?
Yes. MinuteClinics offer day, evening and weekend hours where you can be seen by a nurse practitioner for common illnesses, minor injuries, skin conditions and more.
I am an SCMG patient, but I haven't had my first appointment with my primary care doctor. Can I still go to a MinuteClinic?
Yes. However, we encourage you to make an appointment with your primary care doctor, who will be able to help you manage your overall, long-term health and can best direct you to the appropriate care.

Ask your doctor if you can receive your annual flu vaccine in their office or if you should go to a SCMG authorized flu vaccine provider.
