It’s safe to say no one actually plans to get sick or injured — but when it happens, you want to get the care you need so you can feel better as soon as possible. At Triad Primary Care, our team understands that, and that’s why we offer walk-in urgent care in addition to our regular primary care services for patients in and around Greensboro, North Carolina.
Although urgent care is used by plenty of people, it’s still a relatively new concept, and many people don’t know what urgent care is or what issues can be treated at an urgent care visit. In this post, learn the basics about urgent care and how it can help you and your family members stay healthy and comfortable.
Quick facts about urgent care
Urgent care has grown a lot in popularity in recent years, offering treatment for medical issues that benefit from prompt care, but which aren’t serious enough to require emergency intervention. While urgent care at a clinic may help with relieving symptoms, urgent care at a primary care practice means you receive treatment from someone interested in your immediate problems as well as your long-term health needs.
During an urgent care visit, our team listens to your concerns and performs necessary evaluations for diagnosis. In addition, we take your medical history into account to ensure your treatment is safe, effective, and optimized for your health needs and your lifestyle.
After a physical evaluation, our team may prescribe X-rays or other imaging tests, lab work and other screenings, and medication or other therapies aimed at providing you with the best and most appropriate care. Better still, urgent care visits are available by appointment or simply by walking in, making it extremely convenient to get top-quality medical care.
