An urgent care facility is a place you can go to get medical care for issues that aren’t emergencies, and when you are unable to get into your primary care provider:

  • After office hours
  • On a weekend
  • On days when your provider doesn’t have appointments available and your issue can't wait until an appointment is open

Some examples of times you might visit an urgent care could include:

  • You’re sick
  • You cut yourself doing yardwork
  • Your child falls and complains of arm or leg pain

Talk to your doctor for more information about situations in which you might need to use an urgent care facility.

Are there times when I should follow up with my primary care provider after visiting an urgent care?

Most times after you visit an urgent care for treatment, it’s a good idea to follow up with your primary care doctor.

During your visit, the health care provider at an urgent care will tell you whether you need to follow up as soon as possible or make an appointment sometime in the future. 

Also, sometimes an urgent care visit for one concern – a cut on your hand, for example – could reveal an unrelated issue, such as high blood pressure. In this case, you would want to follow up with your primary care provider to make sure your hand is healing well, and for ongoing treatment for your blood pressure.

Talk to your doctor for more information about when to follow up after an urgent care visit.

Why shouldn’t I use an urgent care as a replacement for visiting my primary care provider? 

Dr. Joseph Allen discusses why you shouldn’t use an urgent care as a replacement for your primary care provider.

Urgent care facilities are a great tool available in your health care toolbox. However, it’s important to visit urgent care facilities only when your primary care provider is unavailable.

Your primary care provider doesn’t just give you quick fixes for illnesses and injuries. He or she knows your health history, provides preventive care, and can counsel you through personalized treatment and care plans as you need them.

Urgent care should be used only when necessary. Your primary care provider should be thought of as your medical home base.

Talk to your doctor for more information about why it’s important not to use an urgent care facility to replace your primary care provider.

What are the hours of Premier Health Urgent Care locations?
