Why Urgent Care?
Emergency rooms are not the fastest or most cost effective choice when you need immediate health care, and often it takes days to get in to see a primary care physician or specialist. You could wait for hours in the E.R. for less serious health concerns, and that’s too much time and money lost.
An Urgent Care service fills the gap between a Primary Care Physician and a Hospital Emergency Room. It provides patients with immediate medical care without the wait and hassle typical of Hospital Emergency Room. However, life-threatening illnesses should be dealt with hospitals and routine care by Primary Care Physician.
