Unpredictable illnesses and injuries are unavoidable. When problems like these arise and you or a loved one needs medical attention fast, where do you go? Urgent Care or Emergency Room? In recent years, Urgent Care Clinics have become extremely popular and sought after by many patients in need.
Urgent Care clinics are…
- Offer Extended Hours
- Equipped to treat non-life threatening injuries and illnesses.
- More affordable than ER visits
At urgent care facilities, doctors see patients on a walk-in, first come first serve basis. Wait times to see a doctor and get the medical attention you need are between 15 – 20 minutes and they can treat a number of different ailments. The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey estimates that 1/3 – 1/2 of all ER visits can be treated by urgent care clinics. Treating conditions like allergies, mild asthma, laryngitis, the flu, chicken pox, and urinary tract infections are only a few of the conditions urgent care clinics can treat. We serve patients locally in Laredo, Hebbronville, Zapata, Carrizo Springs, Cotulla, Eagle Pass, and throughout the state of Texas via our Telehealth option.
We treat most non-life threatening medical conditions however, if you require emergency medical attention please call 9-1-1.
