When You Should Choose an Urgent Care Facility

Urgent Care facilities provide a wide range of services performed by well-qualified medical professionals, making them an attractive alternative to your physician’s office or an emergency room. So how do you know when these types of facilities are the right choice for your health needs? Here are some reasons to choose an Urgent Care facility instead.

When you want to cut down on wait times.

When you’re ill, waiting for a doctor’s appointment can be agonizing. Even an overnight wait can be too long for an appointment, but if your condition is not life-threatening, a visit to the hospital may not be necessary. Because emergency rooms take patients with serious or life-threatening injuries first, getting treatment for a minor injury could take hours. At our facilities, you can walk in at any time to see our board-certified physicians, who are on hand to quickly diagnose and treat a wide variety of medical conditions.

When you need a sports physical.

Many sports for children require a sports physical to ensure their health before they are allowed to play. Our medical professionals are trained to address any specific needs or requirements for these physicals and your child can be on their way with their form completed the same day. We can also provide camp and school physicals.

When you need a vaccine or immunization shot.

The best way to avoid serious, preventable diseases is to receive recommended vaccinations on the proper schedule. At our facilities, we can provide the required vaccines for infant, toddler, and school-age children, along with vaccines recommended for adults and seniors.

When you’re in non-life-threatening pain.

If you are in pain, we’re here to help. Our facility is equipped to care for 80% of the reasons why people visit an emergency room. The medical professionals at our clinics are able to diagnose and treat many painful conditions, including:

  • Aches, pains, and bruises
  • Broken bones and sprains
  • Burns
  • Cuts, scrapes, and lacerations
  • STIs
  • UTIs and bladder infections
  • Allergic reactions

When you need blood work done.

Because blood tests can identify an existing problem in its earliest and most treatable stage, they are an important part of your overall health care. Blood tests are offered at our clinics as a part of our commitment to preventative care and wellness. Blood tests can be done as part of your annual physical or used to diagnose an underlying condition behind unusual, persistent symptoms.

When you just don’t feel well.

Falling ill can be a miserable experience and obtaining the right treatment is key to getting over the illness quickly. At our clinics, we are trained to care for:

  • Cold, flu, and other viral illnesses
  • Ear, throat, and nose conditions
  • Lung infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma
  • Stomach ailments, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

When you have a skin disease.

Our clinic can also care for skin conditions, including skin diseases, warts, and infections. Skin biopsies can be performed to determine the exact nature of the condition and we will provide you with a treatment plan to manage your symptoms.

When you experience a work-place injury.

Our facilities are experienced workers' compensation clinics, so our professionals can not only treat your injuries, but also help you correctly file your compensation paperwork.

When you want to save on healthcare costs.

A trip to the emergency room can be very expensive, averaging $1,233 back in 2013. Since then, costs have continued to rise. In comparison, the average cost of a visit to an Urgent Care facility is less than $150 and can be as little as $50. If you are seeking quick care for a minor injury, the clinic would be the more cost-effective option.

When you don’t have insurance.

Not having insurance should not bar you from receiving the medical care that you need. For patients without insurance, we offer flexible financing plans at a significantly discounted and fixed rate. In addition to financing plans, we also offer discounts to patients who choose to pay in cash.

The board-certified doctors at our facilities are ready and willing to help with everything short of a serious or life-threatening condition. Our doctors choose to be employed at our clinics because they enjoy helping patients return to health and wellness. We also provide patient follow-up appointments to ensure that everything is going well after visiting us.
