Call Us First for Non-Life-Threatening-Emergencies

Here at MMR Healthcare in Boynton Beach, we understand how frightening non-life-threatening emergencies can be. That is why we firmly believe you should call us first.

As your healthcare provider, we hope that you trust us with all non-life-threatening emergencies. Going to the hospital is inconvenient and potentially harmful. Coming to MMR Healthcare any day of the week is your best choice.

For all non-life-threatening emergencies Monday through Friday, visit us at our main office.

On Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can visit our Walk-In Clinic.
