Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Emergency room services are reserved for patients experiencing life-threatening, potentially fatal conditions like heart attacks and large open wounds. If you’re not at risk of further injury or death, then a trip to the emergency room will likely result in a long wait before you’re seen by a provider. Urgent care is designed to provide immediate medical services for nonlife-threatening health concerns. 

What conditions can be treated with urgent care?

Urgent care gives you prompt access to high-quality medical care. Urgent care is used to address a number of conditions including:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Back pain
  • Pneumonia
  • Flu
  • Ear infection
  • Sore throat
  • Migraine
  • Sprains
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Allergies
  • Small wounds and lacerations

Urgent care makes it easier to access timely medical services than in an emergency services setting. Grace Family Health is led by a diverse group of providers experienced in a number of different treatment methods. The team works with you to determine the best treatment for timely and effective relief. 

What should I expect during my appointment?

If you or a loved one is in need of immediate medical care, Grace Family Health provides same-day appointments. During your appointment, you and the team work together to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. Treatment for your condition begins with a diagnosis. To perform your diagnosis, your doctor starts with a physical examination and discussion of your symptoms. Depending on your initial evaluation, your doctor may perform a number of additional tests including:

  • Blood test
  • Allergy test
  • X-rays
  • Urinalysis

Grace Family Health provides on-site labs and X-rays. Once you’ve been diagnosed, your doctor determines the best treatment for your condition. 

When should I go to the emergency room?

Urgent care is appropriate for addressing most of your immediate health care needs. Although any change to your health can feel like an emergency to you, emergency room services are often overburdened and must prioritize patients with serious conditions and traumatic injuries. You should consider going to the emergency room if you or a loved one experiences conditions or symptoms like:

  • Chest pain
  • Unconciousness
  • Seizures
  • Deep lacerations or wounds
  • Major blood loss
  • Severe burns
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Persistent vomiting or diarrhea

Urgent care gives you access to convenient immediate medical care without the long wait times typical of emergency rooms. To schedule your visit, call one of the offices or book your appointment online.
