Urgent care is not for life-threatening emergencies, such as a stroke, heart attack or serious car crash – the emergency room is the best option for these situations. Visit our page About Urgent Care, for a guide to determine whether you should go to urgent care or the emergency room. There is also an article on the subject for additional information.
The cost of urgent care is also far less than what patients pay in the emergency department, and generally the wait times are much shorter.
MedCheck Urgent Care is a great option if you need to be seen before you can get an appointment with your primary care provider. However, urgent care is a supplement to primary care, and should not be used as a replacement for your ongoing relationship with your regular doctor.
