Frequently Asked Questions
How is an urgent care practice different from my primary doctor's office?
An urgent care practice can supplement the services your primary doctor can provide, from extended office hours and short wait times to a more comprehensive suite of services available on-site. While your primary doctor cares for multiple chronic medical issues, we treat the problems facing you today. This allows us to treat you expediently without the wait.
When should I not visit an urgent care practice?
Life threatening conditions such as significant chest pain, shortness? of breath, rectal bleeding, or passing out (syncope) are best treated ?in an Emergency Room at your local hospital.
Although our offices are staffed by board certified physicians, life threatening emergencies require ?hospitalization and advanced care available only at a hospital.
