Urgent Care Q & A

Centric Urgent Care

What is a walk-in?

A “walk-in” refers to a clinic or healthcare provider that allows you to walk-in and see a healthcare professional without an appointment. Walk-in health care clinics are there to provide treatment for most common conditions that aren’t life-threatening in nature. This can include minor injuries, such as burns and sprains, and also minor infections, such as pink eye, sinus problems, sore throat, skin rashes, and upset stomachs.

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is available for the treatment of more serious illnesses and injuries that need to be treated in an urgent manner. This includes the administration of IVs, and the treatment of minor and moderately severe trauma for non-life-threatening conditions, such as burns, broken bones, sprains, deep lacerations, and more.

Should I choose urgent care or the ER?

Having questions about which treatment facility to go to shouldn’t be left for the last minute when you’re injured or experiencing a health issue. Knowing the facts before hand will be beneficial if faced with an emergency situation. Emergency rooms treat severe, life-threatening conditions. Urgent care centers treat complex conditions that need expedient action.

Centric Urgent Care treats:
#   Sprains
#   Flu or Cold
#   Immunizations (such as flu shots)
#   Fever, headaches, and chills
#   After-hours care
Centric Urgent Care is able to treat a wide range of urgent care issues. But if you’re ever in doubt whether you need emergency, life-saving care, go to an ER right away.

Visit an ER if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
#   Signs of stroke
#   Anaphylaxis
#   Sudden loss of vision
#   Sudden shortness of breath
#   Coughing or vomiting blood
#   Sudden and severe abdominal pain
#   Suicidal feelings
#   Spinal injuries
#   Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
#   Alcohol or drug overdose
#   Severe chest pain/pressure
#   Sudden or unexplained loss of consciousness
It’s important to follow-up with additional treatments as necessary no matter which option you choose for your care.
