Urgent care is medical care that's not scheduled but which requires immediate attention. Urgent care situations are not life threatening emergencies. Situations like gunshot wounds require an immediate trip to the nearest emergency room, which situations like a severely sprained ankle can easily be handled on site at Quantum Healthcare by Dr. Yasser Salem.
Urgent care can include immediate treatment for many different types of conditions, including things such as:
One of the biggest mistakes that many patients make is minimizing their symptoms, or assuming that their symptoms will go away on their own. If you don't get treatment promptly, you're likely to spend a number of miserable hours and even days waiting for the problem to resolve. Often, the problem won't go away -- and it may even worsen. The sooner that you acknowledge the problem and get help, the sooner that you can feel better and get back to living your life.
