What is the difference between urgent care and primary care?


The kind of care you get from your physician is primary care, and it includes diagnosis and treatment for common health conditions, as well as ongoing care for chronic conditions like diabetes. A part of primary care is preventive care, and this includes physical exams and immunizations to help you stay healthy. All this is what primary care is, and urgent care is very similar.

With urgent care, patients get just about everything primary care offers, and more. So urgent care offers physicals, immunizations, diagnoses, treatments, and continual care, but these services are offered on a walk-in basis. This is the main difference between primary care and urgent care. Primary care sees patients on an appointment basis, while urgent care accepts both appointments and walk-ins.

Also, many urgent care doctors can provide certain services primary care doctors can’t necessarily provide, such as physicals. Urgent care clinics often have onsite labs and X-ray machines too, whereas primary care doctors usually don’t.

When should I see an urgent care doctor?


Sometimes it just isn’t convenient to go see your primary care doctor. It means making an appointment, then waiting for it, and then waiting again in the doctor’s office waiting room! With urgent care doctors, appointments are unnecessary, walk-ins are welcome, and wait times are minimal! Urgent care can see you for any minor emergency, such as minor broken bones, the flu (in children over 3 months), and common infections. They can also see you for physical exams of any kind, immunizations, and some chronic conditions.

You might be thinking that the ER (emergency room) is a good place to go for minor emergencies, but it actually isn’t. The ER is for major emergencies, health situations that are or could be life-threatening. In these situations, the ER is the only option, as urgent care cannot provide the same level of service. However, if you’re sure that the situation is minor and non-life-threatening, then urgent care is the better option, as there won’t be any wait times for patients with minor conditions. At the ER, patients with minor conditions almost always experience wait times.

Where can I see a doctor without insurance?


Another big benefit of urgent care is that they accept most major insurances, but they also accept patients without insurance. Here at League Health, we offer affordable self-pay options for these patients, so if you don’t have insurance, you can come to see us and still receive affordable urgent care.

If that sounds like the kind of healthcare you need, then we’d love to see you here at League Health. Walk-ins are more than welcome. We’d be happy to see you, and you can bring your family too, as we’re also a family clinic! Come see us soon here at League Health!
