What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides treatment for potentially serious but non-life-threatening medical emergencies. If you or a loved one experiences a health problem outside of normal business hours and you’re unable to contact your primary care provider, visit urgent care immediately.

The providers at Sunnylane Medical Clinic offer open scheduling and walk-in appointments. That allows them to serve a broad client base, whenever they need treatment most.

What types of health problems can benefit from urgent care?

The providers at Sunnylane Medical Clinic use urgent care to treat a variety of common health problems, including:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Cuts and lacerations that require stitches
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Eye irritation
  • Fever
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Sprains and strains
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea
  • Low back pain
  • Minor fractures

You might also benefit from urgent care if you need to undergo preventive screenings, like diagnostic imaging or laboratory testing.

What does an urgent care appointment involve?

At Sunnylane Medical Clinic, an urgent care appointment begins with a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your medical history. Afterward, your provider asks about your symptoms, including when they started, their severity, and if any activities like exercise or swallowing make them worse.

If these measures don’t provide enough insight into the source of your discomfort, your provider might recommend additional tests like lab tests or X-rays.

Following diagnosis, your provider designs a treatment plan to help you feel better. Usually, that includes healthy lifestyle changes, rest, and if necessary, prescription medication.

Should I visit urgent care instead of the emergency room?

It depends. If you’re experiencing a potentially life-threatening emergency like severe chest pain or shortness of breath, visit the emergency room right away. Emergency rooms see individuals based on their level of need and have the tools necessary to resuscitate them in the event of a heart attack or stroke.

If the symptoms you’re experiencing are mild and you’d normally contact your primary care physician, visit urgent care. Most urgent care services are covered by medical insurance, allowing you to receive high-quality care for an affordable price.

What should I bring to urgent care?

Before visiting Sunnylane Medical Clinic for an urgent care appointment, collect the following documents:

  • Health insurance card
  • Results of any recent medical tests
  • The name and contact info of your primary care physician
  • Medical device card (if you have one)
  • List of the symptoms you’re experiencing

If you regularly take prescription medication, vitamins, or supplements, bring that information as well.
