The most important thing to consider is the type of treatment you may need, the ER is best equipped to see people with unexpected, intense and immediate symptoms or injuries, such as chest pain, difficulty breathing or serve bleeding. But many health problems can be addressed in other settings in fact, as many as one in one in four ER visits could be handled at an urgent care center. Urgent care can treat issues like sprains, fractures, and cuts that require stitches. And you’re more likely to be treated faster at urgent care- 90% of patients are out in less than an hour.

 

But urgent care isn’t the only option when you're seeking immediate treatment. For issues like a sore throat, the flu or allegories, a walk-in clinic is usually a good choice. Most neighborhood walk-in clinics are open seven days a week and ate typically staffed by certifies nurse practitioners and physician assistants. So, they can have you feeling better in no time.

 

Emergency Room: at the ER, the more severe the conditions, the sooner the patient will see a doctor.

If you experience something unexpected…

- Chest pain

- Difficulty breathing

- Serve bleeding

Go to the ER, where there’s a wider range of specialist and treatment options.

 

Urgent Care: Urgent care typically works on a first come, first served basis.

If you experience non-life-threatening symptoms like…

- Allergies

- Headache

- Rash

-Fever

 

Keep in mind, many minor conditions can also be treated at a retail clinic in your local pharmacy. Knowing where to go can save you time and money.
