What is an Urgent Care Clinic & when should you go?
Urgent care is very much like going to your primary care physician, but with additional services such as on-site x-rays, rapid lab testing, drug screening and prescription medications. Although primary care doctors provide exceptional care for chronic disease management, they may not always be available when you need them. A recent survey by Merritt Hawkins showed that large cities have an average wait time of 29.3 days for an appointment with family medicine providers. City Bay Urgent Care offers same day, walk-in appointments to address this need. We also provide pediatric urgent care and walk in vaccinations.
In addition, for non-life threatening injuries and minor ailments, an immediate care may be a good alternative to going to the emergency room. In fact, most ER visits can be treated at an urgent care facility at much lower costs compared to an ER visit. If you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, or a life- or limb-threatening condition, call 911 immediately or seek treatment at your nearest ER.
Our facility is conveniently located in the Sunset District, and we're open 7 days a week and most major holidays. We accept most major insurances, Medicare, and cash.
What’s the Difference between an Urgent Care Clinic
and an Emergency Room?
You’re injured or ill. It’s after hours, and you can’t get in to see your doctor. You have two choices. You can go to an urgent care clinic or visit an emergency room. How do you make the correct decision on where to receive healthcare services?
As more patients are faced with the above decision, it’s important to know the difference between the emergency room and an urgent care—and the services they provide. While emergency rooms serve those with life- and limb-threatening injuries and illnesses, heart attacks or strokes, or traumatic injuries, an urgent care can treat those needing immediate, less serious care—and typically do it more affordably with less wait time.
