You never know when an urgent medical situation can arise. But what happens if you need medical attention outside your primary care provider’s usual hours? Instead of heading for the nearest ER, consider your local urgent care center. Get to know the services they provide, and you’ll know exactly where to head for when you need medical attention fast.
Why use an urgent care center for your treatment
An urgent care facility offers treatment in time-sensitive situations which aren’t life-threatening. For example, if you don’t have access to your primary care provider, an urgent care center can provide the treatment you need in a timely fashion.
What conditions and symptoms are treated at an urgent care center?
An urgent care clinic can treat a range of non-life-threatening and common injuries and illnesses, including:
- Colds and flu
- Cuts, burns and bites
- Allergies and asthma
- Ear, nose and throat conditions
It also makes sense to visit an urgent care walk-in clinic if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Coughing and wheezing
- Diarrhea and vomiting
- Sore throat
- Rashes and itching
- Unexplained swelling or pain
What services will you find at an urgent care center?
Your urgent care clinic will provide a range of services, including preventative health, lab services, treatment procedures, and more. If you’re looking for urgent care in Naples, our walk-in clinic provides the same major services as an emergency room or your primary care provider.
These services include:
Your neighborhood walk-in clinic will help you with the symptoms of common illnesses like cold and flu or those unknown symptoms that even Dr Internet can’t diagnose. Accessing urgent care can be particularly beneficial if your immune system is compromised or you live with a chronic illness.
Our experienced team of nurses and family care practitioners are on hand to provide excellent quality care. As a result, we’re able to offer the same standard of treatment as you’ll find at your primary care physician’s office.
Minor injuries and surgeries
Head for your urgent care center with any non-life-threatening injuries, including minor burns, sprains or lacerations. Our fully trained practitioners are skilled in treating these conditions, saving you a trip to ER.
Your walk-in center may also provide a range of in-office surgical procedures, including the removal of warts and cysts, ingrown toenails and hemorrhoids.
Covid-19 vaccinations are in the news, but your urgent care clinic can also provide vaccinations for anything from seasonal flu to region-specific vaccines for international travelers. We also offer rapid PCR, antigen and antibody testing for COVID-19, plus approved vaccinations at our Naples facility.
When private practices are becoming overwhelmed or cutting services, it’s essential to still have the opportunity to develop a year-round relationship with a primary care provider. Walk-in clinics like Naples Urgent Care offer primary care services year-round, including pediatric urgent care, delivering peace of mind for your entire family.
Urgent care focuses on your health, safety and convenience, making telemedicine a valuable service during the pandemic. While many services require a face to face consultation, telemedicine provides services including consultations and necessary prescription refills on a phone-in basis.
