Urgent Care Q&A
What does urgent care entail?
Urgent care is a field of medicine that addresses mild to moderate illness and medical situations. Generally speaking, urgent care does not handle life-threatening conditions.
However, urgent care does come in handy to provide care for issues that require attention within 24 hours.
When should I make an urgent care appointment?
You can make an urgent care appointment for various reasons, though it is important to remember that urgent care does not treat severe or chronic health issues. It is best to contact your primary care physician to discuss any treatment for ongoing medical conditions.
As a rule of thumb, urgent care visits can address any of the following symptoms:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
- Swollen glands
- Pains and aches
While potentially harmless and easily treatable, these symptoms may be a sign of a more significant condition, so the faster you book an appointment at Excel Family Medical & Urgent Care, the higher your chances of avoiding sickness. You can also walk-in, without an appointment, for urgent care services.
What conditions does urgent care treat?
If your symptoms are characteristic of a more urgent—though not life-threatening—condition, the team at Excel Family Medical & Urgent Care can provide treatment.
The three most common conditions that urgent care addresses include:
Sore throats typically come about as a result of a viral or bacterial infection. Your urgent care provider might perform a throat swab to get to the bottom of your throat soreness and check if you have strep throat.
Colds vary in intensity and can be overwhelming some days while completely manageable other days. Your urgent care provider can help you quiet down symptoms like a runny nose, headaches, and continuous sneezing and coughing.
When your airways are inflamed, you are typically more at risk of having bronchitis. Your urgent care provider can help you address the wet cough bronchitis precipitates.
