Where To Go for Your Care

All too often, illness or injury appears out of the blue. While it is always best to visit your primary care physician, there are times when your regular doctor may not be available. When these situations occur, you may be faced with uncertainty about where to go for care.

While the ER can help care for any medical emergency, costs are high, and wait times can be unusually long. If your medical need is non-life threatening, urgent care centers offer a great and convenient alternative to the ER.

When to go to the ER:

  • Any life- or limb-threatening event
  • Dislocated joints
  • Heavy, uncontrolled bleeding
  • Convulsions, seizures or loss of consciousness
  • Deep knife wounds or gunshot wounds
  • Severe burns
  • Poisoning or overdose
  • Pregnancy-related problems
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Signs of a heart attack: chest pain lasting longer than 2 minutes
  • Signs of a stroke: loss of vision, sudden numbness, weakness, slurred speech or confusion

When to go to Urgent Care:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Sprains and strains
  • Minor back pain
  • Mild to moderate asthma
  • Bleeding cuts that may or may not need stiches
  • Injuries/illnesses that may require X-Rays or lab tests
  • Eye/ear irritation
  • Fever, cold, flu
  • Vomiting, diarrhea
  • Sore throat and/or cough
  • Broken bones and fractures
