Urgent Care Q & A

What is Urgent Care?

MyDoc Urgent Care provides immediate medical care without long wait times or the high cost of emergency room visits. Urgent care is a quicker alternative for immediate healthcare needs that aren’t life-threatening, as about 40% of patients visiting ERs do not require high-level emergency care.

At MyDoc Urgent Care, you’ll see accredited physicians and receive quality care available seven days a week.

When Should I Choose Urgent Care?

When you or a loved one has an emergency that isn’t life threatening, consider choosing MyDoc Urgent Care instead of an emergency room. You’ll receive the same quality immediate care but without long wait times or the added expense of an ER visit. Health conditions MyDoc Urgent Care treats include:

  • Asthma and allergic reactions
  • Sprains, strains, and fractures
  • Back, shoulder, and neck pain
  • Headaches and mild concussions
  • Bumps, cuts, scrapes, and animal bites
  • Mild fever, colds, cough, and sore throat
  • Eye, ear, and sinus pain
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Burning with urination
  • STDs

These non-life-threatening health problems are often easily and quickly treated at an urgent care facility with no wait time — especially when you need immediate care after regular medical office hours or on weekends.

Which treatments do urgent care doctors provide?

The treatments Dr. Salib and the staff at MyDoc Urgent Care provide depend on your illness or injury. You may require:

  • Stitches for small wounds
  • Onsite X-rays for muscle or joint injuries
  • Vaccinations
  • Prescription medications for an infection
  • An EKG to check for heart irregularities
  • IV fluids for dehydration
  • Blood tests
  • Drug tests
  • Sports or DOT physicals
  • Asthma and allergy testing and treatment

Choose MyDoc Urgent Care instead of an emergency room as a one-stop-shop for all your immediate medical needs.

When should I go to an emergency room?

If you’re having symptoms that may indicate a serious health problem, such as a heart attack or stroke, an emergency room may be your best bet. Head to an ER instead of urgent care if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Loss of consciousness or mental confusion
  • Severe chest pain or pressure
  • Severe shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Numbness on one side of your body
  • A broken bone
  • Stab wounds
  • Coughing up blood
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Severe head trauma
