Things to Know

As the saying goes, “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” Unfortunately you can get sick and injured even by the beach, but there’s no need to let that ruin your vacation! If you need to see a doctor during your Gulf Coast getaway, there are several 30A and Destin urgent care options. Thanks to these medical professionals, you’ll hopefully be back on your feet in no time and ready to enjoy the rest of your coastal retreat. 

Doc Smiley’s Urgent Care 

Located in Seagrove Beach, Doc Smiley’s Urgent Care is a family-owned and operated clinic that offers a variety of services. They can perform minor surgical procedures, diagnose and treat broken bones, perform blood tests, X-rays and EKGs right in the office. This 30A urgent care also has an onsite pharmacy so that you don’t have to make a special trip to a drugstore. 

Since you never know when an illness or injury will happen, there’s no need to make an appointment. You can just walk in or call ahead on your way. Thankfully it’s just a short distance from many of our 30A vacation rentals! For a touch-free check-in process, patients can fill out forms online before you arrive. They accept most private and public insurance plans, plus they offer special same day discount pricing for self-pay patients and out-of-network patients.
