When to Visit Urgent Care

So let’s say you’re facing a nagging cough that’s been around for a couple of weeks, or you faced a sudden sprain at work.  It can be concerning enough that you want to seek medical attention.

The two options that come to mind might be either your primary care physician, or the emergency room.

Booking an appointment with your primary care physician can be a bit of a hassle.  You call to set up an appointment, only to find out the your physician isn’t available for the next couple of weeks, so they can’t squeeze you in last minute.

Then there’s the dreaded emergency room.  You have to suffer through the wait, as there are other patients with life-threatening ailments.  The cost of your hospital bill makes you cringe.

There is, however, a great alternative to both the ER and your PCP: urgent care.
