Know where to go for care


We want to help you make the best decisions when you are facing a health issue

Whenever possible, make your primary care provider your first choice, especially when you need treatment for chronic conditions or preventive care such as immunizations and check-ups. Don’t forget about taking advantage of MyLGHealth, the convenient and secure way to manage your health 24/7 using your computer or smartphone.

If your primary care provider is unavailable, such as nights, weekends or holidays, and you need medical attention for a non-life- threatening problem, LG Health Express and Urgent Care are smart alternatives. No appointment is needed and most insurances are accepted.
