What exactly is urgent care? What does it treat?
Urgent care is the medical field that address sudden acute illnesses or injuries that don’t require emergency medical attention. However, these medical needs are still urgent and include lacerations, ongoing flu and cold illnesses, and similar immediate needs.
However, many patients may not realize that urgent care also involves making sure that you have an easily accessible facility to get a variety of diagnostic exams. For example, patients can go to urgent care to get services including x-rays, lab testing, and other preventive medical appointments.
