You might be asking, what does urgent care do? Urgent care is a dedicated medical facility outside of the traditional emergency room for walk-in care. These centers primarily treat injuries and illnesses that cannot wait for your regular physician and are often not serious enough for an emergency room. If your child is running a high fever or suffers from a minor cut or scrape urgent care can take care of them promptly. In most cases the urgent care wait times are much shorter than found at an ER and at West Covina Family Medical Center we make it a priority to treat our patients as timely as possible.
When does visiting our urgent care center make sense?
There are many injuries and illnesses you can be treated for at an urgent care center versus an emergency room. In fact, research shows that about 50% of everything seen in an ER could be seen at an urgent care instead. Here are a few examples:
- Cold symptoms
- Flu symptoms
- Setting and casting broken bones
- Sprains and strains
- Lab tests
- Suturing minor cuts
Whatever the case may be we want to make sure our patients know we are here to help in any situation. The professional team at West Covina Family Medical Center urgent care, provides high quality, convenient medical care for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. Most of the time severe pain, cuts, scrapes, a high fever or even a sprain may happen over the weekend and there is no possible way to see your primary care physician. These are the times when you can visit our urgent care center to be seen by our resident family doctor, Dr. Nercessian. He and his friendly staff have the experience and certification to help in these situations. Don’t wait through the weekend suffering from pain; visit our urgent care center today.
