The difference between urgent care and the ER

When you're having a medical emergency, you may not know where to go for help. There are distinct differences between an ER and an urgent care clinic that are important to recognize. You can come to our clinic for medical care with issues like:

  • Sprains
  • Minor cuts and burns
  • Vomiting or infections
  • Unexplained muscle pain
  • Earaches, stomachaches or skin condition flare-ups
Immediately life-threatening situations like major lacerations, potential heart attacks and broken bones must be treated at the emergency room. We can assist with these situations by calling an ambulance and connecting an EKG but cannot provide the immediate care you may need. For more information on our urgent care services, call 337-446-0555 today.
