Urgent Care

An urgent care is a type of walk-in clinic that provides medical care for illnesses and injuries that are not serious enough to require an emergency room visit but still require prompt attention. Urgent care centers are typically open seven days a week, with extended hours that include evenings and weekends, and are staffed by healthcare professionals such as physicians, nurses, and medical assistants. They often have on-site diagnostic equipment and lab services, such as x-ray machines and blood test equipment, which enables them to provide a wide range of services.

Common conditions treated in urgent care centers include:

  • Minor cuts, burns, and lacerations

  • Sprains and strains

  • Fractures (minor)

  • Cold and flu symptoms

  • Sore throat

  • Ear infections

  • Rashes and minor skin infections

  • Minor burns

  • Minor breathing difficulties

  • Gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea and vomiting

Urgent care centers can be a good option for individuals who have a medical condition that needs prompt attention but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to an emergency room. They can also be a good option for individuals who do not have a primary care physician and need to be seen quickly.
