SHOULD I SEEK MEDICAL CARE AT AN URGENT CARE CENTER OR EMERGENCY ROOM?
For most cases, an urgent care center is the better option for immediate emergency care at an affordable price. In fact, more than 90% of cases that end up at an ER can be treated with the same quality of care in an urgent care facility.
In addition, urgent cares like D.C. Urgent Care offer shorter wait times, so you’re more likely to receive prompt medical care as soon as you walk in. No matter your emergency, at D.C.Urgent Care, we will see you immediately. If you’re still not sure whether or not your condition warrants a trip to the urgent care or ER, we welcome you to give us a call or stop by our facility. In the rare event that your condition requires medical care beyond the scope of urgent care, we will still provide you with the treatment you need to ensure you’re stabilized before referring you to an ER or specialist.
