Experience You Can Trust

Our staff has years of experience providing high-quality care. Dr. Joseph Moore began his career 40 years ago, treating injured marines. He has also worked with elite athletes, serving as the team doctor for the USA Women’s Ice Hockey team in the 1998 Olympics. As a widely respected primary care physician, Dr. Moore is also an instructor at the UCSD School of Medicine. Because of his sports medicine background, believes in holistic medicine, starting with a comprehensive evaluation.

All too often illness or injury appear unexpectedly. Maybe you wake up with intense abdominal pain. Or you stumble on a flight of stairs. Your child spikes a high fever. Perhaps you step on a stingray while enjoying the beach. Pacific Wellness Center +Urgent Care is here for your medical emergencies.

We offer same-day care when your regular doctor is not available. Often, we see visitors to San Diego who are in need of urgent medical help. Because our staff has experience treating many medical emergencies, we are one of Southern California’s leading urgent care centers. Please call us if you have questions.

Our clinic is prepared to handle many common illnesses and injuries. For example, patients regularly see us for coughs, fevers, cuts, infections, and diseases. We treat strep throat, dehydration, nausea, and many other medical issues. If we are unable to provide the care you need, we will provide an immediate referral.

Sick Child With Thermostat

Equipped for Most Medical Needs​

Because we have our own x-ray machine, we can diagnose bone injuries. If needed, we will set and splint fractured bones. We also tend to sprain and fix dislocated joints.

Being sick is never fun. It is stressful enough without the added burden of unplanned medical expenses. To make it easier, we accept most PPO insurance plans.

And yes, we treat those painful sting ray injuries. We are just three blocks from the beach and the beautiful Pacific Beach Crystal Pier. If you are a visitor to the San Diego area, we can work with your primary doctor. We make every effort to help you feel better quickly.

Whether you live locally or are visiting San Diego, our approach is the same:

  1. Review your prior health history
