What is urgent care and how it it different from emergency department?
Urgent care is staffed by licensed medical providers who can see you for a variety of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries like the flu, cough, twisted ankle, rashes, minor cuts and scrapes. Think of urgent care as a bridge between primary care and emergency care, only you don't need to book weeks in advance or waiting the entire day in the waiting room. Instead, you can save your spot by checking in online or simply walk in to any of our centers. However, unlike an emergency department, urgent care is not an appropriate place to come if you are concerned about stroke symptoms, chest pain or if you have any condition which you feel may be life-threatening.
