What’s the difference between urgent care and walk-in clinics?

Actually, there really isn’t a difference between urgent care clinics and walk-in clinics. Today, almost all urgent care clinics provide walk-in service and are also walk-in clinics.

With these clinics, patients are able to receive same-day, on-the-spot healthcare for minor emergencies. The kind of healthcare provided is primary urgent care, which is similar to what your primary doctor provides, but in some ways, more. Here are some of the services we provide at our urgent care/walk-in clinic:

  • Pediatric, adult, and geriatric care (for children, adults, and seniors)
  • Common injury care (for minor fractures, sprains, strains, dislocations, cuts, etc.)
  • Common illness care (for the flu, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, vomiting, mild food poisoning, simple skin conditions, urinary tract infections, STDs in young adults, etc.)
  • Annual physicals, sports physicals, school physicals, and more
  • Lab testing and X-rays for advanced diagnostics
  • Occupational medicine and physical rehabilitation
  • Medication for common ailments
  • An onsite pharmacy for prescription fills
  • And more!

Do you need an appointment at urgent care?

Since almost all urgent care clinics today are walk-in clinics too, you very likely won’t need an appointment for service. At East County Urgent Care, an appointment is never necessary, but patients who would prefer to make an appointment can do so online or by calling us. In fact, our clinic is so available to you that we’re open 8am – 4:00pm & S-S 9am-2:30pm. just in case you or a family member needs us after work or school, or over the weekend.

Will urgent care see you without insurance?

Yes, absolutely! Typically, urgent care clinics have self-pay options for patients without insurance, and East County Urgent Care is no exception. If you are one of these patients, then you’ll find our self-pay options affordable, and we would never turn away a patient just because he or she doesn’t have insurance.
