March 12, 2014

Open 365 days a year, the Saint Peter’s Urgent Care Center in Skillman continues to be the place to find prompt and convenient care for children and adults. If your doctor cannot see you and you need to see a doctor sooner than later, you can walk in; appointments are not necessary. Whether you feel sick and need to get back to
work or your child was sent home from school or needs that last-minute sports physical, you can see a physician with little to no wait time.

The facility, located at 1378 Route 206, is tucked away from street view in The Village Shoppes at Montgomery, across the street from ShopRite. It is staffed by a licensed practical nurse and a primary care physician board certified in emergency medicine. A lab technician, X-ray technician, and clinical assistant round out the Saint Peter’s Urgent Care Center team.
