Finding Local Urgent Care

Finding an urgent care facility can be a real lifesaver. Below are some tips and tricks to help you find the right urgent care center for you, and a few additional things you’ll need to know.

Urgent care centers are medical facilities with extended hours, where walk-in patients can be seen by a doctor for the treatment of urgent, non-life-threatening illnesses.

Urgent care facilities usually open early and close late so that you can still be seen by a doctor when your primary care physician’s office is closed or booked.

As for time, finding an urgent care facility can save you hours. Emergency rooms are usually overcrowded, and doctors have to see the most serious cases first. So, if you walk in with a non-life-threatening illness or injury, you fall to the bottom of the barrel in terms of priority. Ultimately, this means you could spend over two hours at the emergency room (if not more) for something that would take less than 30 minutes at an urgent care center.

Many urgent care centers do not take appointments, so once you’ve found your urgent care facility, give them a call to see how busy they are. The final step is to see the doctor at your urgent care facility and seek treatment for your symptoms.

• Use Google or Yelp to search for urgent care centers.

• Call the urgent care facility to find out more information about their availability and facilities.

• Go visit your new found urgent care center for medical attention.

Finding an urgent care facility should not be a struggle. With these tips, you will be on your way to feeling good in no time, and without breaking the bank.
