Minor Illness Treatment in Boiling Springs, SC

All illnesses are important to treat, no matter how trivial. Whether that involves at-home remedies or visiting a health clinic, all conditions are important to address, or they could develop into more serious conditions. At AFC Urgent Care, we treat all kinds of illnesses, even ones that are considered minor. It’s always good to be on the safe side!

Can I go to urgent care for a doctor’s note?

Doctor’s notes are typically available at urgent care centers if you go there with a legitimate medical complaint. However, if you were to simply check in to get a note, that would be up to the provider’s discretion. Please be honest with your urgent care physician to help them diagnose your situation and provide the necessary treatment. It is important to be direct and clear, to avoid creating unnecessary wait times. Some places are very strict when it comes to excuses, so be sure to have a reasonable explanation for your condition.

Where to go to the doctor if you have no insurance?

First and foremost, people should not avoid going to the doctor just because of the cost. It could cost you your health and lead to more complications down the line if you postpone getting the care you need. You can still see a doctor and receive medical treatment even if you don’t have health insurance. The difficult part is finding services that are affordable. Here are the best places to start when looking for affordable health care.

Walk-in Clinics — Walk-in clinics are available for regular issues. You can see a doctor at a walk-in clinic for minor issues. However, not all of these are as affordable as others, so make sure to ask what the costs are upfront.

Hospital Emergency Room — You should go to the hospital emergency room if you have an immediate medical emergency. Emergency medical providers like hospitals usually can’t refuse care in an emergency because you don’t have health insurance. However, emergency care is the most expensive type of health care. It should only be used if it’s a true emergency. Urgent care is typically a more affordable option in non-emergency situations.

Urgent Care Centers — Urgent care centers are available for immediate, non-life-threatening emergencies and other time-sensitive medical needs. This will almost always end up being a cheaper alternative to a hospital visit, provided the clinic is able to address your medical needs. These centers are like a walk-in clinic for more serious concerns, such as broken bones, sprains, and wounds requiring stitches.

Can I go to urgent care as a minor?

States have enacted statuses, and courts have proffered an abundance of case law on the treatment of minors. There have been no reports of physicians being held liable for rendering emergent or urgent care to minors prior to obtaining parental consent.

Competency to give consent is decided in the same way for both minors and adults:

  • Does the individual understand what he or she is consenting to?
  • Can the person paraphrase the information given?
  • Can the patient think in the abstract and have an understanding of the future consequences of either accepting or refusing the treatment?
  • Is the decision entered into voluntarily, without duress?
  • Given the nature of the decision, does the patient understand the risks and benefits and its reversibility?

If a minor is legally capable of giving consent, the patient’s right of confidentiality also attaches. However, it is prudent to try to persuade the minor to allow notification of the guardian so the parent can take part in the decision-making process; this is especially preferable if the minor is seriously ill. Unless the failure to do so would place the minor in additional risk, statutes allowing minors to consent do not mandate parental notification.

If you or someone you know is experiencing an illness, even if it seems trivial, come to AFC Urgent Care today! We have a team of professional staff ready to help you with your healthcare needs. Contact our office today to get in touch with a specialist. To book an appointment, call us or visit us online!

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issue(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room.
