Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is what you seek when you have a medical issue that needs prompt attention but isn't a life-threatening emergency. It’s the middle ground between your regular doctor's office and the emergency room, providing immediate care for time-sensitive illnesses and injuries. 

At Grace Health Services, you can walk into the clinic and receive timely care right away, ensuring your provider can address your needs as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Should I visit urgent care or wait for a regular appointment?

Whether you should visit urgent care or wait for a regular appointment depends on the nature and urgency of your medical concern. Health problems that typically require urgent care include:

  • Persistent sore throat, cough, or sinus congestion
  • Minor cuts or burns
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Ongoing diarrhea or constipation
  • Sprains and strains
  • Minor fractures 
  • Skin rashes or infections
  • Mild to moderate allergic reactions
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Eye irritation or conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Insect or animal bites
  • Earaches or minor ear injuries

Grace Health Services prioritizes your health and well-being to help you get back on your feet quickly.

When should I choose the emergency room over urgent care?

Choosing the emergency room (ER) over urgent care is appropriate in situations that require immediate medical attention due to severe or life-threatening conditions. Grace Health Services urges you to head to your nearest ER if you experience:

  • Head injuries
  • Seizures
  • Obvious fractures
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Severe allergic reaction
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden slurred speech

After an ER visit, schedule a follow-up visit with your Grace Health Services provider to ensure continuity of care and a complete recovery.
