Urgent care services

Urgent care is a good option when you have an urgent medical problem that should be seen by a doctor within 24 hours, but it's not life-threatening. Examples include:

  • Fever without rash
  • Minor trauma such as a common sprain
  • Painful urination
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • Severe sore throat
  • Vomiting

If your symptoms come on gradually or you already know the diagnosis, such as a urinary tract infection, you may want to try to get a same-day appointment with your primary care provider. While urgent care clinics are always available, your primary care physician will have a better picture of your overall health for a more accurate diagnosis.

Not sure whether you need to go to urgent care or the ER? Making the right choice could save your life. If you have a serious condition including stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma, call 9-1-1. Do not take a chance with anything life-threatening.
