Understand your options: Urgent Care or Primary Care?

Urgent Care is the fast, convenient way to treat urgent medical issues that arise. But if it can wait, or if you have other issues to discuss, you may want to consider calling ahead for a primary care appointment. Here’s a guide to help you get the right care.

If you answer yes to any of these questions – call us for an appointment

  • Can care wait for a day or so?
    Urgent care is more expensive than call-ahead appointments. Call your insurer for details on your out of pocket costs.
  • Important: Do you need to discuss a chronic health issue or medication refill?
    These must be treated through a primary care visit. Call for an appointment.
  • Do you have additional health concerns you plan to discuss?
    Call for an appointment. Urgent care visits are short by design, with just enough time to treat urgent medical concerns to get you in and out quickly.
  • Do you have three or more issues to discuss?
    If so, specify everything you need to discuss when you call, so that we book a longer appointment. This will incur a higher cost.
  • Do you need to see your regular doctor?
    Urgent care visits are with the first available provider, not your regular doctor.
