Urgent Care Q & A

by Imad El Asmar, MD

When should I go to urgent care?

Patients with non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses should go to urgent care for diagnostics and treatment, especially if they’re unable to make an appointment with their primary care physician. Dr. El Asmar recommends going to the emergency room for anything that seems life threatening.

What services does urgent care provide?

Urgent care provides diagnostics and treatment for several conditions, including respiratory illnesses, fractures, allergies, minor wounds, and stomach flu. Other available services include blood work, EKGs, and other tests, as well as medical services required for workers’ compensation.

Do I need to make an appointment for urgent care?

Urgent care allows walk-in visits so patients don’t need to make an appointment, though patients can schedule a same-day appointment if they prefer. Making an appointment ahead of time might reduce wait time, while walk-in visits offer a convenient way for patients to receive medical care without having to worry about an appointment.

How long will I have to wait at urgent care?

Waiting times at urgent care vary based on how many other patients are in the office. In general, these wait times are much shorter than typical wait times in emergency rooms.

What medical information do I need to provide?

Patients who go to urgent care should provide information on their medical history, including whether or not they have underlying medical conditions. Patients also need to tell Dr. El Asmar about any medications they are currently taking.

Should I schedule a follow-up visit?

Dr. El Asmar recommends patients come in for a follow-up visit, depending on the type of medical problem are receiving treatment for. He might ask patients to visit urgent care again for a follow-up visit or schedule an appointment with their primary care physician.
