Why Go To An Urgent Care?
One of the biggest trends in medicine today in America is the growing usage by patients of urgent care clinics. When you have cold symptoms such as a cough or sore throat and your primary care doctor is fully booked for the next 2 weeks, patients find that urgent care clinics can provide convenient and good quality care that they need right away. Urgent care clinics also can be a cheaper and quicker option than going to the emergency room for non-emergency illnesses such as minor cuts or injuries. See the following article below:
Study: More patients are heading to urgent care centers
NEW YORK — David Weiner knew it was time to see a doctor after feeling under the weather for almost a week.
“I had a sore throat for the past few days and wanted to get checked out, and a rash on my hands and face.”
So he walked into Northwell Health-Gohealth Urgent Care in New York.
“You are seen quickly and get good service and much easier than going to my primary care doctor.”
New research in JAMA Internal Medicine found that the number of people treated at urgent care centers has more than doubled over the past eight years, while visits to primary care doctors and the emergency room for non-life threatening conditions are declining.
