Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides prompt medical attention for non-life-threatening emergencies. If you or a loved one develops an illness or suffers an injury that needs attention, urgent care can assist.

Going to urgent care can save you time and money. Emergency rooms see patients based on their level of need. If you twist your ankle, you might end up waiting hours to see a doctor if someone else comes in who is having a heart attack. What’s more, most major insurers provide coverage for urgent care services, meaning you won’t have to pay out of pocket.  

What are some common problems that urgent care treats?

The team at UpcareClinics provides urgent care for medical conditions that aren’t emergencies, but require care within 24 hours. These include:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Cuts or lacerations that require stitches
  • Mild or moderate asthma attacks
  • Fevers
  • The flu
  • Moderate back problems
  • Sore throats
  • Coughs
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, or dehydration
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Ear infections

Urgent care also provides diagnostic services, including blood tests, strep throat tests, influenza tests, X-rays, and other imaging.

What should I do if I experience a medical emergency?

If you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency, such as a loss of consciousness, uncontrollable bleeding, or severe chest pain, stay calm and visit your nearest emergency room or call 911 right away. 

Urgent care facilities are unable to handle medical conditions that can permanently impair or endanger your life. 

What happens during an urgent care appointment?

At UpcareClinics, the team offers same-day urgent care appointments. Once you arrive at the office, your provider conducts a physical and neurological exam, asks about the symptoms you’re experiencing, and reviews your medical history.

If necessary, they might also order blood tests, a urinalysis, or diagnostic imaging to pinpoint the underlying cause of your symptoms or to assess an injury.

After gathering this information, your provider develops a custom care plan and makes recommendations for treatment. This might include getting rest and drinking plenty of fluids, taking prescription medications, or getting stitches. 

The team can address most urgent care needs, but if you need further care from a specialist, they can refer you to a provider in the area.
