Even a minor injury or illness can be enough to ruin your day or the whole week. It can be much more difficult to get work or chores done, and sometimes it can be too hard to simply get out of bed. If your energy levels are low or if you’re distracted by discomfort, it can be difficult to get much of anything done. This is when it’s so nice to get urgent care to help you get better faster. Walking Urgent Care offers quick, convenient care for the Coral Springs area, no appointments necessary. Just walk on in for same-day service and to see a doctor right away.
Is urgent care better than the ER?
Urgent care is different from emergency room (ER) service. Urgent care centers are able to offer immediate attention for medical conditions that are not life-threatening. For medical conditions that are life-threatening, you should always dial 911 to get treated at your nearest emergency room. If you’re not sure whether your condition is life-threatening, you should still call 911.
If your condition is non-life-threatening, then urgent care can be much more convenient than emergency room care. This is because urgent care clinics, like Walking Urgent Care, provide first-come, first-serve treatment, as opposed to priority-based treatment like at the ER. If you go to the ER for a non-life-threatening ailment, you’ll be placed on a lower priority than patients suffering from a life-threatening ailment. This means you’ll have to wait for service. With urgent care, you won’t!
Urgent care is also often more convenient than going to see your doctor. To make an appointment with your doctor, you’ll have to schedule for days or even weeks ahead. With urgent care, like at our Coral Springs urgent care center, you can simply walk right in for immediate service.
What does urgent care treat?
Urgent care can diagnose and treat many illnesses and injuries.
Here at Walking Urgent Care, we have an in-house laboratory for on-site testing and screening. This helps us to diagnose urinary tract infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, strep throat, the flu, sexually transmitted diseases, and other illnesses. We can even offer our patients cholesterol or blood glucose testing, or screen for drug use. These tests help us streamline the diagnostic process quickly compared to typical doctor’s offices. Once we have a diagnosis, our professionals are fully capable of treating illnesses on the spot.
Our clinic is also able to diagnose and treat common injuries right in our office! We maintain our own digital x-ray equipment for a variety of radiology services. This allows us to look for injuries that aren’t always obvious, like minor fractures. We can also provide stitching for minor cuts, as well as treatment for sprains or dislocations.
With Walking Urgent Care, you can also get your prescriptions filled! We can fill many common prescriptions on site, such as antibiotics, insulin, some pain relievers, most allergy medications, and others.
