"With a child, urgent care facilities are such a peace of mind--and until I found Lakes, I never knew where to go. ...the staff at Lakes (owners included) made my wife and I feel so confident in their physicians. We were seen in a matter of 5 minutes which is unheard of, and I just can't explain enough how positive of an experience it was. As long as I live where I do, I'll never worry about where I'm going if urgent care is what my family needs."
