Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is an area of medicine that allows patients to receive prompt care for illnesses or injuries that demand treatment within 24 hours. Without urgent care, your only options when you feel unwell are to wait until your health care provider has an open appointment or to go to the emergency room. 

With urgent care services onsite, the Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC team ensures you receive quality care without the cost, time, or stress of a traditional emergency room.

How is urgent care different from visiting the emergency room?

Urgent care doesn’t deal with life-threatening emergencies. An emergency clinic can address all serious injuries and illnesses, including limb-threatening health conditions. Common reasons to visit an emergency room over an urgent care center include:

  • Severe fracture 
  • Head injuries and concussions
  • Seizures
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Full or partial paralysis
  • Fainting
  • Chest pain
  • Heart attack symptoms
  • Sudden shortness of breath
  • Bleeding that won’t stop

If you’re unsure whether you need emergency treatment or urgent care services, reach out to the team at Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC for guidance.

When should I seek urgent care?

Urgent care allows you to get same-day care for illnesses and injuries that can’t wait for treatment. The Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC team provides complete care for:

  • Wounds that require laceration repair
  • Incision and drainage (I&D) of abscesses
  • Suture and staple removal

Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC offers multiple laboratory services, as well as X-rays and other imaging scans, to diagnose your condition and relieve your symptoms as quickly as possible.

What can I expect from an urgent care visit?

When you arrive for an urgent care visit, the team checks your height and weight before checking your vitals (blood pressure, respiration rate, and temperature). Next, you meet your provider in the exam room. The team reviews your medical history, if possible, and asks questions regarding your symptoms before performing the appropriate testing.

Your provider may need blood work, urinalysis, or imaging scans to investigate your symptoms and administer the right treatment. Once they treat your illness or injury, the team may schedule a follow-up appointment.
