There are times when you need care right away or when you aren't able to see your doctor. But, not all health issues are right for a visit to the emergency room. That's when urgent care is your best choice.
What Is Urgent Care?
Urgent care is care given to you for a health issue that needs to be treated within 24 hours or that happens outside of normal office hours, like at night or on weekends.
