Should You Go To Urgent Care or Rush To The ER?

When someone experiences a sudden illness or injury, they know they can go to the emergency department for treatment. What some people may not know, is that an Urgent Care may be able to care for their illness or injury at a lot more affordable rates and less time than a trip to the ER.

Emergency rooms are a vital, life-saving resource to our communities. However, it is important that they are used when you have a life-threatening emergency. For other non-life-threating problems, urgent care centers save time and money.

Unavoidably, illness or injury always seems to occur at the worst possible time in our lives. For many of these situations, an Urgent Care could be the right choice. It can be scary when there has been an injury or unexpected illness, and you always want to seek treatment as soon as possible so it’s important to understand your options ahead of time.

We want to give each patient a personal connection. Every patient receives a follow-up call within 24 hours of their visit.
