When Should I Go to an Urgent Care Clinic?
An urgent care clinic provides all of the same services as your physician’s office, and more. This allows you to get all of your diagnostic and treatment needs met under one roof.
You may need to come in to First Care Medical Clinic right away if you or your child are experiencing any of the following issues:
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Hives or asthma symptoms
- Sports injuries
- Strains or sprains
- Open wounds
- Sore throat
This isn’t an exhaustive list, and there may be other urgent medical needs that bring you to the clinic. While you can certainly book a same-day appointment, you’re also welcome to walk in to the First Care Medical Clinic nearest you for immediate treatment.
What are the Benefits of an Urgent Care Clinic?
Many of the above issues are serious and warrant immediate medical intervention, but they’re not necessarily medical emergencies. First Care Medical Clinic serves as a full-service medical facility you can go to for all urgent care needs when you need to be seen right away. Visiting an urgent care clinic is beneficial because:
- All members of your family can be seen during a single visit
- It is more cost-effective than an emergency room visit
- It allows you to walk in when you need immediate care
Plus, if you’re established with the practice and already come to First Care Medical Clinic for your internal medicine or pediatric care, all of your medical records are on site. Your practitioner can evaluate your medical records so they can provide more personalized care.
