What is Urgent Care?
Urgent Care Medicine is defined as the immediate medical service offering outpatient care for acute and chronic illness and injury. However, urgent care does not replace the job of your primary care physician. An urgent care center is an alternative option when you are unable to see your regular physician, or when you become sick outside of regular office hours.
Of all specialties, urgent care medicine is most similar to family practice and emergency medicine, though urgent care medicine is unique in that it is a completely separate specialty with a unique knowledge base, skill set, and breadth of experience. Urgent care medicine cares for both male and female patients of all ages with any complaint, and its primary focus is on acute medical problems.
