The urgent care facility at URGI-MED Family Medical Center is a cost effective alternative to visiting a hospital Emergency Room.
The URGI-MED vs the ER
Simply put, we treat walk-in patients with injuries and illness that aren’t serious enough to go to the ER. The URGI-MED offers high quality care and our fees are typically lower than most hospital emergency room visits.
The purpose of this center is to provide care for minor emergencies and injuries. No appointments are necessary, patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis, and depending on their medical priority. If patients have significant injuries and illnesses they may be directed to the emergency room.
URGI-MED is a great alternative to visiting an Emergency Room. You’ll be seen by a doctor with an average of 15-20 years of experience; not an intern, nurse practitioner or physicians assistant.
Typical urgent care services include:
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Wounds, abscess
- Sprains and fractures
- Insect stings
- Allergic reaction
- Abdominal pain
- Upper respiratory infection
- Falls, back and neck injuries
- Work injuries
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Ear infection
- Sore throat
- Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
If your condition warrants a higher level of care, your URGI-MED physician will make that recommendation after reviewing your condition.
