How does urgent care work?
An urgent medical condition is a minor health problem that requires prompt medical attention. The term “urgent” means a health problem that is minor and non-life-threatening, but it still requires immediate care. This is compared to an emergency medical condition which is a health problem that requires emergency medical attention because the condition is life-threatening.
An example of an urgent medical condition is a cut that needs stitches. Other minor injuries, as well as minor illnesses can also be urgent medical conditions. An example of an emergency medical condition is a major fracture or a heart attack.
Emergency medical conditions are treated at the ER (emergency room), while urgent medical conditions are treated at urgent care.
A walk-in clinic is a clinic for health care on a walk-in basis, and an urgent care clinic is a clinic for care on merely a prompt basis. This means some urgent care clinics may not provide walk-in services. However, we do provide walk-in service here at Doctors Urgent Care.
Urgent care provides prompt healthcare for urgent medical conditions. Remember, “urgent” means non-life-threatening, so urgent care can see you only if your health problem is minor. Most urgent care clinics provide walk-in service, so an appointment isn’t necessary in order for you to receive care. Also, most urgent care clinics provide care for people of any age, so you can take your child or an elderly parent to urgent care.
