What are the benefits of urgent care?
An urgent care clinic provides medical care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses on a walk-in basis. Urgent care clinics are usually open extended hours, seven days a week, and offer services including x-rays and laboratory tests. Urgent care clinics are a more convenient and less costly alternative to the emergency room for patients with non-life-threatening conditions. According to the Urgent Care Association of America, the average cost of an urgent care visit is almost nine times less expensive compared to an emergency room visit for the same treatment.

Yes, Reddy Urgent Care is currently accepting new patients for urgent care. Some urgent care clinics can become overwhelmed, resulting in longer wait times and making it harder to get the care you need. To prevent this, certain clinics will limit the amount of patients they can serve, in order to provide adequate care to all of their patients. When the time arises, urgent care doctors will accept new patients, taking on the role as their medical provider. This is beneficial in many situations, especially when it is difficult to book an appointment with a primary care physician.
Urgent care doctors have many roles and responsibilities, from treating patients to performing exams and screenings. Among their list of duties includes:
– Diagnosing the medical problems of patients
– Writing prescriptions to treat various medical problems
– Performing different medical procedures and exams
– Recording relevant information in patient records
– Providing excellent patient care
Urgent care provides a long list of benefits over other healthcare delivery approaches, including the following:
Shorter Wait Times: When you are sick or injured, the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the waiting room. Urgent care focuses on treating non-life-threatening (and therefore less severe) conditions, so patients can receive treatment quicker, and see the doctor faster.
Reduced Costs: One of the biggest benefits that urgent care provides over emergency care is the reduced healthcare costs; urgent care is often significantly less expensive—in many cases less than a quarter of the cost—compared to the ER when receiving the same treatment.
Extended Hours: In addition to this, urgent care clinics are also typically open later than primary care clinics, offering weekend and evening availability.
