GAMC Opens New Urgent Care Center in Montrose


Adventist Health Urgent Care – Montrose is now open and accepting walk-in patients from 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am to 5 pm weekends and holidays. No appointments are necessary. 

As a limited-time introductory offer, a free health assessment will be offered to evaluate one’s risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and hypertension. Early detection of these diseases can improve both quality of life and life span. The assessments will be available only at specific times, which can be found at, the urgent care website.

The new facility is located at 1975 Verdugo Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge. 

Physicians will be on duty to treat walk-in patients with a wide range of minor emergencies and illnesses, including colds, coughs, sore throats, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fevers, flu symptoms, ear aches, eye infections, stomach aches, rashes, insect bites, cuts, scrapes, minor burns, infections, broken bones, fractures, sprains, strains, bruises, urinary tract and bladder infections and allergies.

Patients can also obtain primary care and preventive care services including annual exams, sports and school physicals, health screenings, pregnancy testing, treatment of employee injuries, lab and X-ray tests, flu shots and other immunizations, employment screenings and pre-employment physicals.

“Patients who need to see a doctor right away can get the same quality of care they’d receive at an ER for minor emergencies and illnesses—but much faster and at much lower costs,” says Arby Nahapetian, MD, chief medical officer, Adventist Health Southern California Region. “Of course, patients with more serious symptoms and conditions should always call 911 and be seen at an ER.”
