When to Visit an Urgent Care Center

You can suffer from a surprise illness or injury at any time, often suddenly and when you cannot get an appointment with your primary care physician. When these instances happen, you have two main options for medical care: an emergency room or local urgent care. If you are experiencing a non-life-threatening medical issue, visiting an urgent care center can save both time and money, getting a diagnosis and treatment in under one hour.
