New Urgent Care Medical Center Opens in Charles County
MyDoctor Urgent Care, a new walk-in medical center, is now open at 177 Saint Patricks Drive, Suite 101, in Waldorf; near the intersection of Smallwood and St. Patricks Drives, behind Saint Charles Towne Center.

The facility provides urgent care for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, such as cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, sinus infections, minor cuts and sprains. MyDoctor Urgent Care is designed to be a lower-cost alternative to an emergency room visit and to care for patients who do not have a primary care physician or unable to see a primary care physician in a timely manner.
In addition to urgent medical care, MyDoctor Urgent Care offers routine and specially required physicals and vaccinations. As an added convenience, the center offers on-site X-ray, laboratory and pharmacy services, and it is staffed by board certified physicians, nurse practitioners and radiology technicians.
The center is open seven days a week and no appointments are required. MyDoctor Urgent Care accepts most major insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.
