Urgent care centers are an excellent alternative to a hospital emergency room (ER) when immediate medical care is needed for non-life threatening conditions like the flu, X-rays for sprains and strains and stitches for minor cuts.
If you're unable to schedule an appointment with your PCP, these facilities are open daily with extended hours and treat walk-in patients of all ages. Heading to the nearest urgent care center for non-life threatening conditions can help you save time and money!
