According to the American Academy of Urgent Care (AAUCM): ” Urgent Care Medicine is the provision of immediate medical service offering outpatient care for the treatment of acute and chronic illness and injury. It requires a broad and comprehensive fund of knowledge to provide such care. Excellence in care for patients with complex and or unusual conditions is founded on the close communication and collaboration between the urgent care medicine physician, the specialists and the primary physicians.”
Urgent care center medicine is not intended to replace a primary care physician. An urgent care clinic is an invaluable solution for urgent medical needs when a primary care provider is unavailable: on vacation vs booked schedule vs on maternity leave vs suffering from illness, etc. Urgent care can also fill in for those issues that occur outside of your doctor’s regular office hours like after 5pm or weekends and holidays.It can also be a faster more convenient way to seek medical care than waiting for hours upon hours in your local emergency room.
Common problems treated in an Urgent Care clinic are things like: lacerations, broken bones, dislocations, viral illnesses, urinary tract infections, low back pain, foreign bodies, eye complaints, and suture removal. Problems that often require emergency room attention are: chest Pain, seizures, loss of consciousness, head injuries, stokes, loss of vision, and major motor vehicle accidents. Use your best judgement on where to go, but always err on the side of caution as its best to end up at a higher level of care center than being tolsd your serious condition needs to be treated else where. You can always call of triage service 2541-388-7788 to discuss your condition and our ability to care for you.
