When you come down with a non-life-threatening illness or sustain a minor injury, where do you go for urgent medical care? Certainly not the emergency room, since your condition is hardly an emergency. You may have to wait a long time at great expense to get the care you need.
Your primary care physician, if you have one, could also help, but what if it’s late in the day or the doctor’s office is closed? Your best bet is to visit an urgent care center, which is open late, even on weekends; and also provides top-notch services at affordable cost and with no need for an appointment.
Let’s take a closer look at the types of healthcare services offered at an urgent care center.
An urgent care center accommodates patients of all ages— adult and pediatric patients— with a gamut of acute, non-life-threatening medical conditions and minor injuries, including the following:
In addition to providing medical care, an urgent care center offers annual, sport, school, travel, immigration, and DOT physicals; COVID-19 testing; vaccinations; diagnostic testing, among other essential healthcare services.
