Urgent Care Examinations for Non-Life-Threatening Conditions
When an emergency medical situation arises, you need fast medical attention. Scheduling an appointment with your primary physician is often out of the question and wait times at hospitals could take hours – precious time that your medical condition does not have the luxury of waiting for. All these factors and more make urgent care centers a valuable alternative to emergency rooms for last minute emergency care.
Exer Urgent Care offers affordable emergency care with short wait times of minutes – not hours – and accepts most insurance plans including Kaiser and Medicare. Our ER doctors and medical professionals can perform a number of examinations, diagnostic testing, and minor surgeries for your non-life-threatening medical needs.
Should any prescription be required to treat your emergency situation, most of our facilities conveniently stock medications in-house and prescriptions can be filled with little to no wait time. Exer Urgent Care was created with our patients in mind, doing everything possible to minimize the number of trips needed to restore you to full health, and doing so as quickly as possible.
Emergency Room Alternatives: Urgent Care Clinics
Urgent care centers are a relatively new type of medical establishment. They were first introduced in the 1970s and at the time, only provided basic care for ailments like colds, flu, and other everyday diseases. Since then, urgent care centers have evolved to be sophisticated medical centers with many facilities that rival a primary doctor’s office such as X-rays, in-house labs as well as in-house medications.
Patients have been flocking to these hybrid health centers as they offer convenient and fast treatment by licensed doctors and nurses. Urgent care centers are walk-in friendly, and attractive to patients because appointments are not necessary. It is for this particular reason that many patients are turning to clinics like those of Exer Urgent Care for life’s everyday emergencies.
Urgent care clinics serve as a midway treatment option between primary care and the emergency room, offering the best of both worlds at a fraction of the cost.
Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room
Determining the severity of an injury or illness is the most influential deciding factor when deciding whether to go to the emergency room or urgent care. If your medical emergency is severe enough to warrant a call to 911, it would be safe to assume that going to the emergency room is appropriate. Traumatic injuries that would require X-rays, major surgery, or other intensive treatments are better suited for the extensive staff and high-tech equipment found at hospital emergency rooms.
When To Go to the Emergency Room
If you are experiencing a life or limb-threatening emergency, first call 9-1-1. Go to the emergency room if you or someone is experiencing symptoms such as:
- Heart attack or stroke
- Head injury
- Severe cut with bleeding,
- Loss of consciousness
- Severe burns
- Not breathing
- Inability to move
- Neck or spinal injury
- Chest pain or pressure
- Poisoning or overdose
- Electric shock or struck by lightning
- Your emergency takes place when Exer Urgent Care clinics are closed
