Friendly, efficient staff. Speedy treatment. In and out but I never felt rushed. They are quick and caring. I felt very comfortable here. The Doctor was super. Thank you for taking good care of me and getting me on the road to recovery with the meds I needed. Goodbye Bronchitis!

I was obviously a long way from home when I came here. My boyfriend and I were visiting family in El Cajon and had big plans to go to the SD Zoo... when I woke up this past Saturday (3/14/15), it was clear that I wasn't going anywhere. I originally got sick almost 3 weeks ago, was diagnosed with strep at an L.A.-area urgent care and given antibiotics, went home to see very little progress. Returned to a doctor to be told I probably had a random virus, was given a steroid shot, and went home to see some slightly better progress, but definitely not healthy typical me. By Saturday, I knew my initial gut feeling was right and that something was going on. Thank God the amazing nursing staff and Dr. Wolfe listened--finally, someone who really heard me when I stated that I know my body and my immune system and something was off, and all I wanted after these long weeks was a solution. Both the nurse and doctor were thorough in their evaluation, their bedside manner was remarkably friendly, yet professional all the while, and I knew that they really were concerned with getting my health back on track. I got chest X-Rays and was diagnosed with bronchitis that had been missed when previous doctors thought one diagnosis could suffice and accounted for my myriad symptoms. I was put on a proper course of treatment, and by the next day I was already 80% back to normal, progress I hadn't seen with the antibiotics, steroid, and cough medicine given to me before (by other doctors, remember). It's Monday night and I'm set to finish my course of antibiotics on Wednesday and I'm taking a cough medicine that finally quiets me and soothes my throat without knocking me out on my ass. Someone finally listened to what I had to say about my own body and found an answer we trust doctors to find. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I wish this urgent care and staff were about 100 miles south and closer to home for me because I would never again question where to go when I'm sick. So grateful for the friendly, professional, and, most importantly, effective team at East County Urgent Care. Should I ever get sick or stay sick while visiting my sister, I'll confidently go back to see Dr. Wolfe.

I had a fantastic experience at East County Urgent care. I called after 4 pm thinking I would need ti get an appoint for the next day and they said I could come on in right then. I wasn't there for more than like 25 min before the nurse called my name. Oh yeah and the initial paperwork to complete was minimal and the girl at the reception desk was very friendly and efficient. The nurse was great too, She had a great sense of humor and great attitude. Then there is Dr. Wolf, I cant say enough nice things...He is real! Very friendly, easy to talk to, explains things in words easy to understand and FUUUNNNYYYY, OMG he was really cracking me up. I left there wishing he was my own doctor. I am recommending this office to everyone in need of a doctors visit. They've really got a great staff.

I've been to this clinic three times now and each time I feel that I received great care. The wait was reasonable and the staff is very friendly. I actually prefer going here than to my primary care physician. I've even gotten a follow-up call at home.

I needed treatment on a Saturday. I made an appointment online. I arrived for my appointment and I was seen by the doctor within 5 minutes. The exam was thorough and professional. I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and given a prescription of antibiotics. After completing the prescribed medicine my symptoms were gone. They accepted my insurance. This was a very positive experience and I would return here again without hesitation.
