What happens when you get injured or are sick, and your doctor isn’t available? You may consider an urgent care visit versus going to the Emergency Room. But, what is the better choice?
In the past, many people turned to emergency rooms if their primary care doctor was unavailable. However, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services, only about 15% of patients seen in emergency rooms have genuine emergencies.
Urgent care centers were developed to fill the space between hospital emergency rooms and your primary care doctor’s office. They are typically staffed with doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and technicians that are trained to treat various medical conditions.
