Urgent care is there for you and your family when you need quick, convenient treatment for a non-life-threatening ailment. Sometimes the situation is too urgent and you just don’t have the time to wait for an appointment with your family doctor. Other times the situation isn’t so urgent, so going to the emergency room (ER) isn’t necessary. This is when you should come to an urgent care clinic instead.

What can I go to urgent care for?
One of the best things about urgent care is that it’s the perfect alternative for when going to the ER or your primary doctor just isn’t necessary or convenient. For example, you don’t have to go to the ER for a minor fracture, and you don’t have to go to your primary doctor for the flu. However, both of these situations are still urgent! You would want to be treated quickly and avoid the wait times, wouldn’t you? Urgent care is the best option in these situations.

Is urgent care cheaper than the emergency room?
Please, if your illness or injury is life-threatening, then dial 911 for emergency service and go to the ER. The ER is absolutely necessary in life-threatening instances.
In non-life-threatening instances, you can still go to the ER, but you will be considered a lower priority patient under high priority patients that are suffering from a life-threatening ailment. Lower priority patients could have to wait for service. Also, lower priority patients could end up with a bigger bill than if they had gone to an urgent care clinic instead.
Urgent care is generally less expensive than emergency care, at approximately $100 per visit, and less with insurance (costs may vary, so please contact us for more information on costs). Urgent care is also generally covered by insurance, and we accept most major insurances here at Priority Urgent Care. But remember that urgent care clinics are not properly equipped to treat patients in a life-threatening situation, so if your situation is life-threatening, go to the ER.
