Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care? 

Urgent care is medical support for acute illnesses and injuries. You might need urgent care for minor sprains and strains, or an illness like a sore throat. These illnesses and injuries are non-life-threatening but may require medical intervention to heal properly. 


If you have a more severe health problem like difficulty breathing, you should seek emergency care at your nearest hospital.

What conditions might require urgent care?


Some of the most common conditions that people seek urgent care include: 


  • Minor fractures, like broken toes and fingers 
  • Lacerations 
  • Small wounds 
  • Allergies 
  • Sore throat 
  • Colds and flu 
  • Minor burns 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Ear and eye infections 
  • Rashes 


If you have one of these issues, it’s important to seek urgent care. 

How are conditions treated with urgent care?


Urgent care services offer prompt, effective treatment for many acute conditions. When you arrive at Aztec Urgent Care, the team begins your care immediately to save you time and further discomfort. 


They may recommend diagnostic testing, like blood work and X-rays, to diagnose your condition and determine the best course of treatment. 


In most cases, the team can treat you right away. If you have a wound, they can clean, stitch, and dress the wound. Or, if you have the flu, they can prescribe medications like decongestants and anti-inflammatory pain relievers. 


However, if you require specialized care for more complex health problems, they can refer you to other health professionals. 

When should I go to the emergency room instead of urgent care?


While many injuries and illnesses can be treated with urgent care, some medical problems might require additional monitoring that is only available at an emergency room (ER). 


Some situations that may prompt you to seek your nearest hospital instead include: 


  • Excessive bleeding 
  • Major burns or broken bones 
  • Chest pain and shortness of breath 
  • Deep wounds 
  • Major back or spinal cord injury 


If you’re unsure whether your condition requires a trip to the emergency room, reach out to the team at Aztec Urgent Care. They can refer you to the appropriate treatments as needed.
