What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a type of medical care that can address mild to moderate medical concerns right away. Innovative Medical Clinic offers walk-in services for urgent care purposes so you don’t have to spend hours in the waiting room at an emergency room (ER) for something that isn’t necessarily an emergency.

The Innovative Medical Clinic team has the expertise to give you the detailed evaluation and prompt care you need when a sudden medical concern comes up. They have the necessary resources to diagnose and treat acute illnesses as well as many minor injuries. They follow up with you to make sure any treatment you get is effective.

Which services does urgent care provide?

Innovative Medical Clinic proudly provides a wide range of urgent care services to address many medical needs. These services are available to you with or without an appointment. Simply walk in any time for:

  • Laceration repair
  • Incision drainage
  • Joint aspirations
  • Imaging tests
  • On-site lab services
  • Foreign body removal

Innovative Medical Clinic also has an in-house mini pharmacy so you can pick up prescriptions shortly after your appointment in the very same place. This saves you the energy of a trip to another location to get the medication you need.

How is urgent care different from the emergency room?

Some people mistakenly think urgent care and the emergency room provide similar services. While both types of practice can address many of the same issues with expert evaluation and treatment, you’re better off going to an urgent care clinic for medical concerns that aren’t life-threatening.

However, you should skip urgent care and head to the ER if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Major bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Signs of a stroke
  • Signs of a heart attack
  • Seizures
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Changes in mental function
  • Vaginal bleeding or abdominal pain during pregnancy

The Innovative Medical Clinic team diagnoses and treats acute issues, which saves you time in the ER and major costs associated with ER services and ambulance rides.
