What is an urgent care center?
An urgent care centers provides treatment for the non-life threatening illnesses and injuries that occur on a day-to-day basis. They are equipped to serve the entire family, including children, and can handle a variety of conditions ranging from colds and fevers to lacerations and fractures. The majority of Medi-Station’s providers are Emergency Medicine/Family Medicine trained and have emergency room experience.
It is best to receive direct attention rather than waiting hours, days or weeks to be seen. Since most urgent care centers have extended evening hours beyond those of a private Doctor’s office, they are excellent options for late day, evening and weekend medical problems. Unlike most physician offices, appointments are not necessary.
