When Should I Visit an Immediate Care Center?
In many cases, our Immediate Care Centers are faster and less expensive
than an emergency room. It's important to know when they're most
appropriate, and when you truly need emergency care.
If you need urgent medical treatment for a non-life-threatening condition
and can't see your usual primary care physician-because you don't
have one, they don't have any appointments, or it's after hours
or a holiday-an Immediate Care Center is a good choice.
If, however, you (or a family member) experience any of the following symptoms,
you should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911:
- Chest pain
- Dislocation of shoulder, hip, or knee
- High fever in an infant (101° or higher in a baby under 3 months)
- Persistent or severe bleeding
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
- Severe allergic reaction
- Stroke symptoms, like weakness on one side of your body, difficulty speaking
and understanding, and loss of consciousness
- Sudden, severe abdominal pain
