The role of urgent care
When you need to see a doctor and don’t have time to make an appointment, we’re here for you. Urgent care should be used for non-life threatening issues only. If you are experiencing chest pain or shortness of breath, please go to the nearest hospital emergency room or call 911.
Urgent care – minor injuries and illnesses
In general, if the illness or injury is something you’d normally see your family doctor for but you can’t get an appointment right away or it’s after hours, urgent care is the right choice.
- Sprains and strains or possible broken bones
- Sore throats and coughs
- Ear infections
- Fever or flu symptoms
- Worker’s compensation injuries
Emergent care – severe injuries and illnesses
In general, if the illness or injury seems more critical than something you’d see your family doctor for, or if you need care during the middle of the night, go to the emergency center.
- Head injuries, or sudden, very severe headache or loss of vision (could be a sign of a stroke)
- Chest pain or other heart attack symptoms – call 911
- Serious lacerations, severe bleeding, poisoning
- Intoxication, overdose or attempted suicide
- Severe abdominal pain
