MINOR MEDICAL EMERGENCY TREATMENT
Medical emergencies can differ greatly but any emergency requires quick medical assistance. Not every emergency means you must go to the ER. Waiting times at a hospital can be lengthy and expensive. Instead, come to Garden City Urgent Care Walk-In Clinic for fast and affordable treatment.
Some common types of physicals we perform include:
REASONS FOR CHOOSING THE ER
Certain emergencies, such as serious physical injuries, require the attention you can only get at the ER. Some examples include a loss of consciousness, a heart attack or chest pains. If you’ve suffered a head or spinal injury, possibly due to an auto accident, you should definitely visit the emergency room.
Other situations that require a trip to the emergency room include seizures lasting longer than 3-5 minutes and severe burns from electrical shocks or lightning shocks.
WHAT IS CONSIDERED A MINOR INJURY?
For many injuries, it is understandable to wait for an appointment with your local doctor. If you think your injury or illness cannot wait, but it isn’t life-threatening, consider a walk-in visit to Garden City Urgent Care Walk-In Clinic.
Other reasons to consider urgent care are a severe cold, minor sprain, fracture, low-grade fever or an earache.
