What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a service for patients who need prompt medical attention but aren’t suffering from a serious injury or illness that requires a visit to the emergency room.

AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Woodbridge provides both routine primary care appointments and urgent care facilities, ensuring you have all your non-emergency needs met in one convenient location.

How do I know whether I need the ER or urgent care?

If you aren’t sure whether you need emergency treatment or not, the chances are that urgent care is the best option. If you’re in unbearable pain, have serious bleeding, or symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, then go to the emergency room. You should also go to the emergency room if you:

  • Have a broken bone that’s sticking through the skin (compound fracture)
  • Experience a seizure or convulsion
  • Lose consciousness
  • Have been shot or stabbed
  • Are considering taking your own life
  • Have a baby under three months old who has a fever
  • Have moderate or severe burns
  • Sustain serious head or neck injuries
  • Have difficulty breathing

These are all emergencies because they could pose a risk to life.

Urgent care problems are ones that you wouldn’t want to delay getting treatment for by waiting for a routine appointment, for example:

  • Wounds that need stitching but aren’t bleeding heavily
  • Asthma attacks
  • Eye infections or irritations
  • Minor fractures of fingers or toes
  • Sprains and strains
  • Strep throat
  • New skin rashes
  • Acute back pain
  • Fever or flu
  • Ear infection
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Mild dehydration

Common sense should tell you if you need emergency treatment or urgent care, but if in doubt, call AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Woodbridge for advice.
