When To Use Urgent Care?


Do you know the best place to go when you’re sick?

We’ve all been there: what began as a tiny cough in the morning has become a full-blown fever, headache, and sore throat overnight. You know you need to see a doctor, but your primary care provider is booked through the week. Learn how an urgent care center can help.

Emergency Room

The Emergency Room is equipped to treat minor injuries or illnesses, but you’ll likely end up waiting much longer and paying a lot more than you would at an urgent care. A visit to the emergency department should be reserved for true medical emergencies, such as trauma, surgical procedures, and life threatening situations.

  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Chest pain
  • Head injury
  • Severe trauma
  • Open fractures
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Poisoning
  • Severe burns
