Central Illinois Urgent Care

Ear Pain

If you need to help diagnosing and treating ear pain in the Effingham, Taylorville, and Litchfield areas, turn to the professionals at Central Illinois Urgent Care. We know how frustrating ear pain can be and are committed to diagnosing the source of your problem and providing treatment to help you overcome your discomfort. Rather than struggling to find time to visit your family physician or heading to the ER when you know it isn’t really an emergency, stop by our urgent care center at your convenience and receive the medical support you need when you need it most.

The first step toward treating ear pain is to diagnose the origin of the problem. At Central Illinois Urgent Care, our team can give you a thorough examination and determine why you are experiencing pain. Then, with this information, we can walk you through your treatment options and explain what you need to do to get your discomfort under control. In some cases, this might entail the use of medication – to address a bacterial ear infection, for example – while in other instances, at-home remedies like warm compresses or even gargling salt water can provide temporary relief.

Here are some other advantages of visiting Central Illinois Urgent Care to treat your lingering ear pain:

  • We maintain extended business hours for your convenience, allowing you to stop by when you want rather than having to make an appointment with your family physician.
  • Our urgent care center is open seven days a week, so if you feel under the weather on Saturday or Sunday you know you can turn to us.
  • We have in-house lab work capabilities, allowing us to confirm the presence of infection.
  • We prioritize offering affordable care and present a much more cost-effective alternative to visiting the emergency room in a non-emergency situation.
  • No appointment is necessary to meet with a member of our team, although if you know when you’re going to visit, exactly, you can reserve your spot in line using ZipPASS®.

Patient Reviews

I have been in here several times as my family doctor is located in Springfield. I have always had an excellent experience. Highly recommend.

Friendly staff who really care about your health.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place: from the staff, the cleanliness, the professional attitudes, the no-wait time, the kind and caring Dr. Toofan, to the sticker on the way out... excellent! Very impressed.

Love love this place!! I have been taking my daughter here when she is sick since she was 3 months old! They give me what I need and if you don't need it they don't! I trust them very much! This place is a lot more money then other places in regards to my insurance coverage, but you can't buy trust!

I can't give enough stars to this AMAZING place! We got in and out within 30 minutes. Staff was so polite and nice. Dr. Beth was great with my little one. Not only was our experience in the facility a great one, but Dr. Beth personally called me the next day to check on my Baby. That meant a lot to me. I have a hard time trusting Drs that aren't our regular one, but I definitely will be revisiting here if ever needed.

I just left here and although I'm sick with BRONCHITIS my soul was happy to have Dr. Toofan, Paul MD as my provider today. He was very attentive and friendly. The staff was also amazingly friendly. The facility is absolutely gorgeous for an express care clinic!!!

My little one was sick, whilst we were out of town on a Sunday. I had seen this Urgent Care from the interstate & decided to see if they were open. They were & even opened the door a few min. early to let us in. The office was clean, & the staff was very kind & courteous. Dr. Toofan was great with my daughter (he has kids) & got us in and out very quickly. They had her RX available there, if we didn't want to go to a pharmacy. Having just received a call (just over 24 hours from the initial visit) from the Dr. (not from the receptionist or even a nurse) to see how things were going, I felt that a review was definitely deserved. This is exactly what an Urgent Care should be!

I prefer Taylorville Urgent Care over the ER. You are greeted the second you come through the door and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes, if that to be seen. The staff is very friendly, well experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. They are very thorough in their workup and treatment of your health issue. Further, medial supplies, if needed, are provided for your injuries that the hospital will not provide. The staff seems to be genuinely concerned about providing the best care possible. I consider this service to be state of the art. I'm extremely happy they are here. This care facility is definitely an asset to Taylorville.

Thank you Bethany for your help today! The options of getting prescriptions filled there was definitely cheaper on me. The staff was all great as well this was my first visit.
