Should I Go To Urgent Care Or An Emergency Room?

There are times when an urgent care clinic is the right fit for the medical care you need and there are times when you need a facility that can provide more comprehensive care. How do you know where to go when a medical issue comes up?

At Richards & Richards, LLP, we understand the challenges people may face regarding health care and how to make the right choices to ensure they receive proper treatment. When a medical situation presents itself, it can be difficult to know where to go for the help you need.

Below is a simple, noninclusive list of medical issues that an urgent care facility is likely well-suited to be able to help you with:

  • Colds, flu, viral illnesses
  • Earaches
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Strep throat testing
  • Less severe cuts, scrapes and burns
  • Sprains/muscle strains
  • Bone fractures
  • Asthma and allergic reactions

It is very important that you advise your primary care provider that you have been treated at an urgent care facility. Your primary care provider will have a greater understanding of your medical history. That level of personal knowledge and other factors may allow your primary care provider to make diagnoses that an urgent care facility could not.

An emergency room may be the best option for more serious medical issues such as:

  • Fever in an infant
  • Possible heart attack
  • Possible stroke
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Compound bone fractures
  • Serious burns or lacerations
  • Head, neck or spinal injuries
  • Severe chest pain or difficulty breathing
