Trusted Walk-In Urgent Care Center in Hamden, CT
PhysicianOne Urgent Care brings a high level of easily accessible medical care to Hamden, Connecticut. Founded in Connecticut, our network of physician-founded immediate care centers faithfully serves adults and children with a wide array of non-life-threatening health concerns, from the common cold to broken bones and everything in between. Because we know that illnesses and injuries often strike at the most inopportune moments, we have extended hours every day – including weekends and holidays – and do not require appointments, although you can check-in online beforehand to skip the wait in the waiting room if you prefer.
The PhysicianOne Urgent Care Difference

- Our affiliation with Yale New Haven Health System allows us to make outstanding health care more accessible to residents of Hamden and surrounding communities.

COVID-19 Testing Available at Our Hamden Office
PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers COVID-19 testing for patients with or without symptoms. We offer PCR and Rapid (antigen) testing, as well as antibody testing. Simply walk in to be tested, or reserve your spot online for your test. You can also start your test with a Virtual Visit, meeting with one of our providers via telehealth first, and your subsequent in-center test will be expedited. Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, loss of taste or smell, and general malaise, but these symptoms can also be attributed to the common cold and the flu. That’s why it’s a good idea to get tested to rule out COVID-19.
Here at our urgent care center, we also offer antibody testing. This test can determine whether COVID-19 virus antibodies are present in your blood, which means you had the virus at some point in the past, even if you didn’t have any symptoms. In fact, the World Health Organization estimates that up to 80% of cases are mild or asymptomatic. Getting tested for COVID-19 antibodies helps researchers learn more about the virus’s immunity and is an important first step in learning more about this virus.
Convenient 24/7 Telemedicine Services
PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers virtual visit services to bring our world-class medical care to the comfort of your home. Using a smartphone, tablet, or computer, you can connect to a secure videoconferencing platform to speak with one of our practitioners about the health concerns you have. The provider you chat with will evaluate the symptoms you’re experiencing in order to deliver the right treatment recommendation for you.
Our telemedicine services are an ideal option if you’re suffering from a common illness or injury, such as a sore throat, cold, minor burn, UTI, rash, bug bite, eye infection, or sinus infection. We’re also available to discuss your concerns about symptoms related to COVID-19, or coronavirus. In many cases, our providers can recommend the next steps you should take based on the symptoms you’re experiencing without the need for an in-person appointment. If follow-up care is warranted, our urgent care center is open seven days per week for prompt treatment.
Virtual Visits are typically covered under health insurance plans, so we can bill for the cost of our telemedicine service. We also accept HSA and FSA cards for your convenience. The cost of the visit without health insurance is $50.
