Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is offered to patients who have an immediate medical need and can’t wait for care. You might seek urgent care if you wake up with pink eye, suffer a sports injury, or have a high fever.

Severe, life-threatening conditions, like a heart attack, stroke, or severe trauma, should be treated at a hospital emergency room, however. If you are unsure if your case qualifies for urgent care, call Vantage Medical Associates PC. The friendly staff can direct you to the right level of care. 

What are the benefits of urgent care?

When you have a minor emergency, urgent care is the best choice for care. You don’t have to wait hours in a crowded ER or deal with the high costs of an ER visit. Health insurance will likely cover the cost of your urgent care visit. If you don’t have insurance, you can pay with cash or a credit card.

Urgent care still affords you same-day, professional medical care. Vantage Medical Associates PC is open late and offers weekend hours. You’ll be seen immediately, even if you just walk in. A visit to urgent care can help you avoid the complications associated with your injury or illness and find quick relief.

What conditions does urgent care treat?

Vantage Medical Associates PC treats many common illnesses and injuries. These include:

  • Flu and cold symptoms
  • Lacerations
  • Minor to moderate urns
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Allergic reactions and asthma
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Pink eye
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Nose bleeds
  • Unexplained pain and swelling
  • Preoperative clearance
  • Travel health needs

If you need stitches or a brace for a sprain, the providers at Vantage Medical Associates PC can help. They can also refer you to a specialist if your symptoms suggest you have a severe illness or injury that’s outside the practice’s scope.

What happens during an urgent care appointment?

If you can, call ahead before you visit just to let the staff know you’re coming. Walk-ins are welcome, however.

At your appointment, your provider reviews your medical history and any medications you’re taking. You’ll receive a thorough exam of your injury or illness. You’ll also be asked about when the symptoms started or the incident that caused the injury.

Vantage Medical Associates PC has an onsite diagnostic imaging center. You could be sent there for X-rays or an ultrasound, depending on the nature of your complaints.

Once your provider makes a diagnosis, they relay a treatment plan, including prescription medications or antibiotics, at-home care recommendations, or stitches or splint for an injury.
