What does Urgent Care mean?
Urgent care clinics treat sudden or unexpected injuries and illnesses that are not life-threatening right away. They are a good way to avoid the time and trouble of going to the emergency room and the cost of doing so. Also, you usually don’t have to make an appointment, and people of all ages can usually go to urgent care clinics.
Patients can get help for a wide range of problems, like the flu, allergies, asthma, joint pain, sprains, and STDs, often in less than an hour. Our urgent care clinic also has doctors and advanced practise providers on staff who can do x-rays, give IVs, and treat minor to moderate injuries and non-life-threatening conditions like deep cuts or broken bones, as well as provide some primary care services.
