Urgent Care Vs ER
Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room
It is essential to understand the difference between a walk-in urgent care center and the Emergency Room. Effectively using the correct medical treatment center can save you significant amounts of time and money, and most importantly help keep your life. Urgent care is for conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life. In general, if your medical issue is life-threatening call 911 or goes directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, AFC Urgent Care North Andover is an excellent alternative.
Some examples of conditions that can be treated at your local urgent care center include the following:
Accidents and falls
Asthma – mild to moderate
Bleeding caused by everyday accidents
A migraine headache
Small bone fractures
STD Tests or Treatment
Sprains and broken bones
A sore Throat
Vomiting, Diarrhea, and Dehydration
STD Testing that is Discrete:
We know that sometimes the hardest part of healthcare issues is not knowing. That’s why every AFC Urgent Care center has on-site labs and qualified diagnostic partners, so you’ll get results back on time or even before you leave. From blood workups and analysis to treatment and consultation, our trained staff will give you exactly what you’re looking for. Peace of mind.
