Urgent Care

What is urgent care?

Urgent care describes the kind of help you need when you have an injury or illness that needs attention the same day but isn’t serious enough to require visiting a hospital emergency room.

It’s not always easy to decide what needs emergency care and what is best dealt with using urgent care, but in general, the following need emergency attention:

  • Compound fractures where broken bones protrude from the skin
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Unconsciousness
  • Knife wounds that are bleeding heavily
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Moderate to severe burns
  • Incapacitating head or neck injuries
  • Severe back pain
  • Having difficulty breathing
  • Suspected symptoms of stroke
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Severe chest pain

If you’re feeling very unwell or have an injury that needs stitching, you may not need emergency care, but you do need to be seen by a doctor promptly. The team at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic provides same-day appointments and walk-in facilities at the offices for patients who need urgent care.

What conditions require urgent care?

Urgent care is a kind of halfway option between routine consultations and emergency care. Therefore, if your problem can’t wait for a routine appointment in a few days or weeks, but you aren’t in any imminent danger, you probably don’t need emergency care. Typical urgent care cases include:

  • Minor injuries that may need stitching
  • Asthma attacks (unless severe)
  • Pain or infection in the eyes
  • Influenza
  • Minor fractures, such as a finger or toe
  • Acute back injuries (unless severe)
  • New skin rashes
  • Severe sore throat or hacking cough
  • Acute sprains and strains
  • Migraine
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Dehydration

Receiving urgent care for these types of conditions at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic can get you fit and well with minimal fuss, and prevent minor to moderate injuries and illness from becoming worse.

How do I get urgent care when I need it?

Many primary care physicians refer patients who need prompt attention to an urgent care facility, but at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic, patients can book a same-day appointment or simply walk in for urgent care conditions. This ensures you are seen in familiar surroundings by medical professionals you know, rather than having to go elsewhere with all the additional stress involved.

The urgent care facility at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic isn’t restricted to registered patients; anyone who needs help is welcome to drop in. The team offers walk-in clinic visits at affordable prices for Medicare and uninsured patients, as well.
