Frequently Asked Questions

Urgent care consists of providing immediate care for acute and chronic conditions. Additionally, urgent care consists of treating injuries. It’s particularly useful when a person’s primary care physician is out of town or unavailable. Seeking urgent care is oftentimes the best solution when a patient’s primary care physician’s office is closed. It differs from an emergency room since the patient doesn’t have to wait in a long line.

No, urgent care is only an outpatient treatment. This means patients aren’t admitted to the facility but may be referred to the hospital if additional treatment is needed.

No, a person still needs to see his or her primary care physician for checkups and thorough monitoring of conditions. The urgent care physician will correlate treatment based on the patient’s records, but he or she can’t rely on urgent care for all of his or her medical needs. Often, the patient is advised to follow up with his or her regular physician after urgent care is provided.

Urgent care treatment treats illnesses and symptoms like colds, flu, coughs and sore throats. Earaches, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus infections, pink eye, urinary tract infections, and vomiting are in the realm of urgent care practitioners. Urgent care also treats rashes, irritations, diarrhea, asthma, and allergies. Unlike a primary care physician, an urgent care specialist is able to treat minor broken bones and simple fractures. Flu shots and immunizations are provided under an urgent care physician as well.

Urgent care doesn’t handle serious issues like chest pain, heart attack, stroke, severe trauma, or shortness of breath. These are best handled in an emergency room. Chronic condition monitoring isn’t possible through urgent care either.
