What is Urgent Care?

In Your Time of Need, We’re Here to Heal

First and foremost, urgent care should be ready to go when you’re in need. At ConvenientMD, we’re here to serve you from 8am to 8pm – 7 days a week.

What is urgent care? That’s a question we get pretty regularly at ConvenientMD. To put it as simply as possible, urgent care centers such as ours are set up to assist you with an illness or injury that does not appear to be life threatening, but also can’t wait until the next day, or for your primary care physician to see you. When you need convenient access to medical care, or for the days and hours that the primary care physicians are closed, urgent care centers provide easy access to quality healthcare.

Urgent medical conditions that require immediate care (that are not considered life-threatening emergencies) include:

  • Colds, flus, fever, viral illnesses
  • Accidents and falls
  • Sprains and strains
  • Moderate back problems
  • Breathing difficulties (mild to moderate asthma)
  • Bleeding/cuts – (mild to moderate, perhaps requiring stitches)
  • Diagnostic services, including X-rays and laboratory tests
  • Eye irritation and redness
  • Vomiting, diarrhea or dehydration
  • Severe sore throat or cough
  • Minor broken bones and fractures
  • Skin rashes and infections
  • Urinary tract infections
