We are family-owned and operated urgent care centers started by Dr. Eric and Clara Ellis whose mission is to provide affordable, high quality, urgent care medicine as an alternative to the ever rising costs of the Emergency Department. We take pride in our work and our place in the Lincoln and Granite Bay communities. We always say we are here when you need us, and we mean it.

Lincoln Urgent Care and Granite Bay Urgent Care are fortunate to be staffed with an incredible team of PAs, nurses, and wonderfully trained medical professionals. We’re proud to have a team that is friendly, caring, dedicated, and experienced.

Our founder and lead physician, Dr. Eric Ellis, is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician. Born and raised in California, Dr. Ellis is a graduate of UCLA and the Emory School of Medicine. He completed his training in Emergency Medicine at the University of Connecticut, where after only a few winters realized there was no place like home. For 15 years, he practiced Emergency Medicine in the state of California.

Throughout his career, Dr. Ellis has always been recognized as one of the most efficient and productive physicians in his field. Decreasing patient wait times and the cost of medical care has always been an area of special interest to Dr. Ellis. This combined with an entrepreneurial spirit and desire to serve a small town where he can be part of a community and truly know his patients led to the opening of Lincoln Urgent Care and Granite Bay Urgent Care, and soon a new location in West Roseville.

Over the last 4.5 years, Dr. Ellis, his wife Clara, Diana their office manager, and crew have grown Lincoln Urgent Care and Granite Bay Urgent Care into the premier full service clinics they are today. By using his extensive experience in the ER, Dr. Ellis is able to keep many patients out of the Emergency Department, save them thousands of dollars, and countless hours. Just recently Lincoln Urgent Care was a finalist for Business of the Year in Lincoln by the Chamber of Commerce, and won Best Medical Office, Best Medical Provider, Second Place Customer Service, and Second Place Office Staff in the Best of the Best of Lincoln.

Dr. Ellis is supported by his amazing wife of 24 years, Clara, who helps with HR, and keeps the clinic feeling like a family. She has been on this journey with Dr. Ellis from the beginning and her contributions are too many to count. She wishes daily that Dr. Ellis would get a personal assistant so she does not have to be one. Together they have two wonderful daughters, one a sophomore at Boise State and the other a senior at Del Oro High School. In his free time, Dr. Ellis enjoys golf, mountain biking, skiing, flying, and spending time with his Labrador Retriever, Rosie.

As your trusted urgent care clinic, we would like to notify our patients about the Open Payments database put in place by the Medical Board of California as of January 1, 2024.

The federal Physician Payments Sunshine Act requires that detailed information about payment and other payments of value worth over ten dollars ($10) from manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, and biologics to physicians and teaching hospitals be made available to the public.
