When we’re sick or hurt, we often consider only two options: our primary care physician or the ER (emergency room). Our physician requires that we make an appointment, while the ER can have long wait times for non-emergency health situations. However, there is a third alternative with urgent care. Urgent care is the best choice whenever a health situation is urgent, but also non-life-threatening. For instance, a cut that needs stitches or strep throat are situations for urgent care.
One of the biggest reasons why urgent care is the best choice for urgent but minor situations is that there are virtually no wait times. Rather than waiting a week or so to see your physician or wasting hours at the ER, just go to urgent care instead where you can walk right in for service and the wait times are minimal at worst! This is often more than just convenient when a health situation requires immediate care. However, please remember that urgent care is for minor situations only. The ER is the only option for major, life-threatening situations.
An urgent care clinic like ours can treat any non-life-threatening health condition. This includes any illnesses, infections, and minor injuries. We at East County Urgent Care offer several other helpful services too, including physical exams! The many different conditions we treat and the services we offer include:
– Treatments for cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis or pneumonia, allergies and asthma, fevers, strep throat, etc.
– Treatments for minor sprains and strains, minor lacerations and burns, minor broken bones, and other minor injuries
– In-office X-rays and laboratory and testing services with immediate results (STD testing, drug screening, and more)
– Physical exams, including sports, school, and annual physicals
– Pediatric care for children and geriatric care for seniors
– And more
All of our services are available on a walk-in basis with no appointment necessary. You can just come right over to our clinic for same-day, on-the-spot service, and immediate care. Also, our services are covered by most insurance providers and plans!
