Urgent Care Q & A
How does urgent care differ from family medicine?
Urgent care and family medicine services are provided by doctors with the same qualifications, but urgent care services are available the same day, often without an advance appointment. Additionally, family practice doctors establish long-term relationships with their patients, treating any condition they experience throughout their life, while urgent care doctors may treat different patients every day and see many patients only once for an acute issue.
Can I make an appointment if I choose to?
Yes. While appointments aren’t required, you can make an appointment in advance if it’s more convenient for you.
What conditions can be treated in an urgent care clinic?
Urgent care clinics can treat almost any condition that isn’t life-threatening but requires immediate attention. This might include:
- Upper respiratory problems, like coughs, colds, and sinus infections
- Lower respiratory infections like bronchitis and pneumonia
- Sexually transmitted diseases, bladder infections, and yeast infections
- Strains, sprains, pulled muscles, and suspected fractures
- Ear infections, eye infections, strep throat
- Accidents, falls, and back or neck pain
- Vomiting, diarrhea, or resulting dehydration
- Fever, symptoms of the flu or other infection
- Cuts that require stitches
Any life-threatening condition should be treated in an emergency room, which is staffed and equipped to handle events like these.
Is urgent care cheaper than the emergency room?
Yes. It’s substantially less expensive to be treated in urgent care than in the emergency room. Furthermore, some insurance policies include a significant patient contribution to the cost of an ER visit; this generally doesn’t apply to urgent care visits. However, Mansfield Urgent Care and Family Medicine bills your insurance as a primary care physician.
Can urgent care clinics prescribe medication?
Yes. The doctor can prescribe medications to ensure you receive safe and effective treatment in a timely manner.
