Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care gives you quick access to medical care for problems such as an acute illness, a minor injury, or a flare-up of a chronic health condition.

The team at 24/7 Doctor offers urgent care to anyone who needs immediate help, whether you’re a new or existing patient. They can also serve as your primary care provider as the team includes board-certified family physicians and specialists in general medicine.

What conditions are treated through urgent care?

The team at 24/7 Doctor has years of experience providing urgent care for many conditions. This list isn’t comprehensive, but it gives you an idea of the conditions they frequently treat:

  • Common cold
  • Flu symptoms
  • COVID-19 symptoms
  • Cough
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Fevers

When should I go to the emergency room instead of urgent care?

Any life-threatening problem or severe injury needs emergency medical attention instead of urgent care. Paramedics are trained to deliver the immediate care needed to save your life, and your emergency department is equipped for advanced treatments and surgery if needed.

As a general guideline, these conditions need emergency attention:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Fracture with broken skin
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Severe or worsening abdominal pain
  • Suspected poisoning
  • Serious head or neck injury
  • Difficulty breathing

You should also call 911 if you suspect a heart attack or stroke. The signs of a heart attack include chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, and pain that radiates to your shoulders, arm, back, or jaw.

A stroke causes numbness or weakness on one side of your face or body. For example, one side of your mouth may droop even if you try to smile or one arm is weaker than the other. Strokes can also cause difficulty speaking or make it hard to understand others when they talk.

How do I access virtual urgent care?

Virtual urgent care at 24/7 Doctor is only a phone call or mouse-click away. You can manually call or request an online video conference using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
