Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care offers treatment for acute conditions that can’t wait for a planned doctor’s appointment. Patrick Evivie, MD, FACP, RPVI, and Hans Kwaku, MD, MPH, FACP, get you in the office to be examined, treat your condition, and help you feel better. Urgent care means you can get appropriate care when you need it.

What types of conditions need urgent care?

When you have a medical incident or illness that doesn’t quite need a trip to the emergency room but requires attention within 24 hours – urgent care is the right choice. The types of conditions seen at urgent care include:

  • Cuts that could need stitches
  • Skin rashes and infections
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Fever and flu
  • Mildly broken bones in the fingers or toes
  • Urinary tract infections
  • A severe sore throat and cough
  • Sprains and strains
  • Mild asthma attacks and breathing difficulties

At PrimeCare Medical Center, the providers address these issues immediately and effectively. You’re seen promptly, especially if you call ahead of coming in.

What issues require an emergency room visit?

If you have a serious life-threatening incident, such as symptoms of heart attack or stroke, head to the ER. Uncontrolled bleeding, deep knife wounds, gunshot wounds, or poisoning require a call to 911 and trip to the emergency room.

What are the benefits of urgent care?

PrimeCare Medical Center urgent care offers many advantages over visiting an ER or making a regular doctor’s appointment. You don’t have to wait for hours for your appointment; you’re seen the same day.

Urgent care visits are typically much less costly than ER trips. You don’t have to expose yourself to people with extreme illness or wait hours for your turn to be called.

Plus, by seeking treatment at an urgent care facility you relieve the staff of the ER to place their attention on people with life-threatening cases, but you still get the care you need.

If you have an urgent care need that can’t wait for a regular doctor’s appointment but doesn’t quite warrant a visit to the ER, call PrimeCare Medical Center or schedule an immediate appointment online.
