In a life-threatening situation or serious injuries, immediately call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency department.
WHEN TO USE URGENT CARE
Medical problems do not always happen when your primary care physician is available. Some examples of when to seek out urgent care include:
- Fever or severe sore throat
- Minor stomach pain
- Minor wounds needing stitches
- Minor injuries such as sprains or breaks
You should always notify your primary care physician of any care received in an urgent care center.
