Urgent medical conditions are those not considered emergencies but still require care within 24 hours. Examples include:
- Fever without rash
- Minor trauma such as a common sprain
- Painful urination
- Persistent diarrhea
- Severe sore throat
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.
