Why Go To Urgent Care?

Urgent care clinics offer fast and convenient medical attention for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries, saving patients time and money compared to visiting a hospital emergency room. 

Urgent care clinics are staffed by healthcare professionals trained to diagnose and treat various medical conditions, including sprains, cuts, infections, and respiratory illnesses.

Urgent care clinics often offer extended hours and weekend availability, making it easier for patients to receive medical care when their primary care physician is unavailable. 

Urgent care clinics may offer additional services such as physical exams, vaccinations, and lab tests, which can help patients stay on top of their health and prevent future medical issues. 

Urgent care clinics may offer more affordable copays and fees than emergency rooms or hospital visits, which can significantly benefit patients without insurance or with high deductible plans.
