Personalized Care, Without the Wait

Doctors Express offers exceptional medical care, in a way that is accessible to everyone in the St. Petersburg area. If you are suffering, don’t wait weeks to see your primary care physician. Doctors Express can treat you today.
Be Seen by a Physician
It is not difficult to see the benefits of a walk-in urgent care facility. Most people recognize the need for a treatment option that fills the gap between traditional office visits and the ER. But here’s something you may not realize – not all urgent care centers provide every patient with access to a physician. Doctors Express in St. Petersburg maintains a staff of experienced physicians so one is always available when you walk in the door. Don’t settle for being treated by a nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant. At Doctors Express, every patient will be seen by a licensed physician.
Doctors Express is also unique among urgent care providers because we offer the most advanced medical equipment available outside of a major hospital setting. We have digital X-ray, EKG, and laboratory capabilities right in our office. In fact, our state-of-the-art facility allows us to diagnose and treat ailments that most family doctors’ offices simply are not equipped to handle. We can test blood for infections, diseases, and other conditions, and we can even perform many types of minor surgery. In most cases you will be evaluated and treated all in the same visit.
Treating a Variety of Conditions
If you are experiencing non-life threatening symptoms, Doctors Express is your one-stop source for medical treatment in St. Petersburg.
We routinely treat conditions such as:
- coughs, colds, and earaches
cuts and rashes
urinary tract infections
insect and animal bites
mild asthma attacks
pink eye and eye infections
nausea and vomiting
and many other conditions
Doctors Express also performs physicals, vaccinations, screenings, and more. We encourage you to contact us before arrival with any treatment questions you may have.
Affordable, Flexible Payment Options
Staying true to our goal of making urgent care more convenient for our St. Petersburg patients, we are pleased to offer reasonable fees and several different payment options. At Doctors Express you can expect to pay significantly less than you would for the same services at the ER. We accept most insurance plans, including United Healthcare, Humana, Tricare (Standard and Prime), and many others. Student, automobile, and out-of-state insurances are also accepted. Workers compensation is honored, and self-pay cash discounts are available for those without insurance.
A Smart Alternative to the ER
Emergency rooms have an important role in the health care system. Those with serious injuries and life-threatening conditions need a place to receive immediate treatment, regardless of what it will cost. But what about less serious conditions that still require immediate attention? That is where Doctors Express provides the most value. We do not need to maintain the resources to handle severe traumas, heart attacks, and other such conditions, allowing us to strategically focus on more routine types of medical care. Our cost structure allows us to provide these services with a superb level of care, and at a considerably lower cost to our patients.
We Coordinate with your Family Doctor
At Doctors Express we will work in conjunction with your primary care physician, whether your doctor is located in St. Petersburg or someplace else. In our experience, family doctors are fully cognizant of the fact that urgent care facilities are an appropriate treatment provider for many ailments. We will work together with your doctor, to ensure he or she has full access to the records from your Doctors Express visit. We place great importance on this spirit of cooperation. The most important consideration is making sure you receive the best treatment possible.
Non-Affiliated Treatment Center
Many urgent care centers are affiliated with (and located in or alongside) a local hospital. At first, this may seem reasonable, since it would allow the two facilities to support each other’s efforts. Unfortunately, what ultimately happens is that the urgent care center becomes little more than a glorified intake station for the hospital. Doctors Express is not affiliated with any hospital in St. Petersburg. We maintain an autonomous, self-sufficient facility devoted to providing you with personalized attention in a convenient setting.
Serving the Local Community
Doctors Express is proud to call St. Petersburg home. We are part of a large network of Doctors Express locations across the United States, but we maintain strong ties to our local community and the individuals we serve. We are members of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce, and we seek out opportunities to contribute to the success of our city through the Chamber and other local organizations and events. We value our connection to the people of St. Petersburg. To us, each new patient is an opportunity to strengthen our ties with the community by doing what we love – helping people feel better.
Doctors Express in St. Petersburg is open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. We welcome walk-in patients age six months and older, with or without insurance. We look forward to providing you with exceptional medical treatment, at a time convenient to you, and at a cost you can afford.
Treatment for Non-Life Threatening Conditions
At Doctors Express we provide a wide range of urgent care services. Our physicians treat people who are sick, injured, or require testing of various kinds. We welcome adults and children over the age of 6 months. You don’t need an appointment, and we are open every day of the week.
General Care Services
General care includes treatment of common illnesses such as colds and the flu. If you or someone in your care is suffering from a fever or experiencing body aches, sneezing and coughing, a runny nose, or abnormal fatigue, we encourage you to come in. We also treat allergies, sinus infections, and earaches. Conjunctivitis is another illness we encounter on a regular basis. Also known as “pink eye,” conjunctivitis is extremely contagious and if you are suffering from red, burning eyes we urge you not to delay seeking treatment. Our general care services also include things like suture removal, pregnancy testing, and screening for exposure to sexually transmitted diseases.
Accidents are a part of life. Doctors Express specializes in providing immediate care to those suffering from wounds and other acute conditions. Our physicians and staff are prepared to treat:
- muscle strains and bruising
- sprained joints
- stings and bites
- abrasions and minor burns
- poison ivy
- bone fractures
- respiratory problems
- sudden inflammation
- work injuries
- and more
If you are experiencing a medical issue that requires immediate attention, Doctors Express is available to treat a variety of non-life threatening conditions quickly and affordably.
Doctors Express is dedicated to helping people be healthy. Preventive treatment plays an important part in achieving this goal. Each year we provide flu shots to a great many patients, and we offer vaccinations to prevent other diseases in children and adults as well. We perform diabetes screening, blood pressure checks, and hearing and vision testing. And because we have a laboratory on-site, we can quickly perform blood work to detect anemia, clotting problems, risk of heart disease, and other conditions.
The urgent care services at Doctors Express offer a cost-effective alternative to the ER. Wait times are minimal, and every patient is seen by a physician. If you have any questions about the services we provide, please contact our office.
Whether you need a physical for work, school, or just to stay healthy, Doctors Express is here to help. Our physicians will conduct the exam and provide you with the necessary documentation to show it was performed. We offer physicals every day of the week, including evenings and weekends. You don’t even need an appointment.
Many occupations require physical exams. The purpose of these exams is to check the general wellbeing of job candidates, and to ensure they are physically suited to perform the duties of the position. At Doctors Express, we routinely perform physicals for all types of government and private employers. We work closely with employers to offer an examination that meets their needs and that provides a positive experience for the potential employees. Exams can include medical history questionnaires, drug and alcohol testing, physical ability assessments, and more.
Undergoing surgery places great stress on your body. You may suffer from conditions that are manageable or that even go unnoticed during every day living, but that can cause serious complications during surgery. If your medical provider has instructed you to have a pre-op physical, you can turn to Doctors Express to perform the exam and to make sure you are safe for surgery. Your exam will be handled by a board-certified physician, and any necessary lab work or EKG testing can be completed on-site. We will visit with the primary provider responsible for the surgery, and forward our results directly that their office if you would like.
Physical Exams for School, Sports, and Camp
Some urgent care centers treat child physicals as a bureaucratic requirement that simply needs to be complied with once a year. At Doctors Express we take a different approach. We recognize that young people are exposed to strenuous conditions during sports and other recreational activities, and they must be in a physical condition that is safe for them to participate. Doctors Express uses the latest medical equipment and examination practices to identify health issues that could be a concern. We know parents take these exams seriously, and so do we.
When it’s time for your next physical, you don’t need to wait for an appointment or pay more than you should. Doctors Express offers physical exams that are convenient for you, your family, or your employees.
Travel Medicine and Vaccinations
Florida has always been a popular departure point for international travel. Whether you are a local resident planning a trip overseas, or a traveler from somewhere else making a stop-over, Doctors Express can ensure you are prepared to ward off disease and infection during your trip abroad. We also offer medical care for foreign travelers who become ill or injured while vacationing here.
Routine Vaccinations for Travel
When traveling to other countries, you will be exposed to a broad range of health concerns not present in the United States. Many diseases that have generally disappeared from among our population are still present in other regions of the world. For this reason, heath officials strongly recommend travelers stay current with routine vaccines such as influenza, tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps, rubella, and others. Doctors Express provides routine vaccinations without an appointment (although vaccines should ideally be administered 4-6 weeks prior to departure).
Destination-specific Preventive Care
Every country presents a unique risk for contracting an infectious disease based on factors involving the natural environment and human population. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) maintains an exhaustive list of recommended – and in some cases mandatory – vaccinations and preventive medicine organized by destination. At Doctors Express, we will consult with you about the preventive care you need based on the country to which you will be traveling. You may require vaccination for hepatitis A or B, typhoid, yellow fever, or other diseases. We can also make sure you are prepared with the anti-diarrheal and other medications you need.
