Immediate Care Medicine & Urgent Care Q & A

What is immediate or urgent care medicine?

Immediate or urgent care medicine allows you to get immediate medical services on an outpatient basis. You might find yourself in a position where you need urgent care services if your primary physician is not available or if you have a non-life-threatening medical issue that you need to get checked out as soon as possible.

Urgent care allows you to skip the high cost or long wait of an emergency room visit. No matter your age, you’re still able to see qualified physicians and experts who can treat your symptoms.

You should always go to the emergency room or call 911 if your medical issues could be life-threatening. This includes if you’re experiencing shortness of breath, chest pain, severe abdominal pain, or severe vomiting.

What conditions are treated?

If your symptoms are uncomfortable and you can’t wait more than a day or two to receive treatment, urgent care is a good option.

At Rogers Medical, Dr. Rogers and her team can address a wide range of medical issues with immediate and urgent care services, such as:

  • Minor fractures, sprains, or broken bones
  • Back pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flu, fever, or coughs
  • Skin rashes
  • Infected wounds
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Minor bleeding or cuts
  • Diarrhea or dehydration
  • Eye irritation
  • Bladder issues
  • Minor burns
  • Mood issues like depression or anxiety
  • Cold sores
  • STDs
  • Emergency contraception
  • Earache
  • Vaccinations
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vomiting

If you’re not sure whether or not your symptoms are best-suited for an urgent care visit, contact the team at Rogers Medical so they can help you make an informed decision.

What are the benefits of immediate or urgent care medicine?

While you may already have a relationship with your primary care physician, having a physician that offers urgent care can ensure that a familiar face addresses your health concerns when you need it the most.

Urgent care is beneficial in many ways, including:

  • Cost: An urgent care visit is significantly cheaper than a trip to the emergency room.
  • Care: Urgent care physicians are trained to treat a wide range of conditions and can respond with the best care no matter what symptoms are present.

  • Convenience: With urgent care, you can get your health concerns addressed quickly, get the prescriptions you need, and have a clear follow-up plan.

You can trust Rogers Medical to provide high-quality urgent care. Please note that it’s best to call Dr. Rogers first to minimize wait time.
