What is an Urgent Care Clinic?
Across the United States, urgent care clinics are staffed by physicians that offer walk-in services. They focus on helping people with acute illnesses and injuries. Common cases at urgent care clinics are minor burns, sprains, and broken bones. They provide services that traditionally used to be provided in the emergency room. So in essence, Urgent Care Clinics help prevent emergency room visits by providing care for minor illnesses and medical emergency. Urgent care clinics are, in most cases, not designed to provide life-saving measures. Urgent Care Clinics are sometimes open late hours and also on weekends when traditional doctors offices may be closed.
