Urgent care is an area of medicine that provides care for non life-threatening injuries and illnesses. It bridges the gap between emergency and routine care. If you have a medical concern that demands attention within 24 hours but is not serious enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room, urgent care can deliver the immediate attention you need.
Summitview Urgent Care provides responsive care for many illnesses and injuries. The clinic is open seven days a week and welcomes walk-ins for patients who need immediate care. Every physician on staff is emergency room-trained to deliver the highest quality of care.
Urgent and emergency care both offer extended hours and walk-in visits, but they have a few key differences:
Visiting the emergency room can be costly whether you have insurance or not. If you have a non-life-threatening injury or illness, urgent care is almost always the more affordable option.
Emergency rooms operate on triage care, meaning someone with a more severe medical condition always takes priority. As a result, you can end up waiting in the emergency room for hours before you see a doctor.
While urgent care facilities have the experience and training to provide emergency care, they may not have the equipment or resources to care for life-threatening conditions. If your life is in danger, emergency care is always the better option.
The physicians at Summitview Urgent Care routinely treat the following conditions:
The providers also perform physical exams and pregnancy tests at their clinic.
If you need urgent care, you don’t need an appointment. Bring your insurance card (if you have one) and photo identification to your visit. If you take any medications or supplements or have recently received treatment for another health concern, make sure to mention it to your provider. Summitview Urgent Care services are convenient and affordable to meet your needs.
