5 Questions to Ask Your Urgent Care Clinic

Urgent care clinics can be a highly convenient place to receive quick and thorough medical care! At Minit Medical Urgent Care, our medical providers proudly provide a diverse range of medical services to our valued patients.

Do I need an urgent care appointment?

Since urgent care clinics accept walk-in appointments, they are an excellent option for anyone experiencing an injury or illness that is not life-threatening but requires same-day medical attention. In this way, they differ from most primary care clinics, which typically require appointments to be made in advance.

With that in mind, you do not need to make an appointment in advance to receive medical care at an urgent care clinic! All you need to do is visit an urgent clinic, and a medical doctor or professional will provide you with medical attention in a short amount of time.

While both urgent care clinics and emergency rooms conduct patient evaluations when individuals first arrive at the clinic, urgent care clinics typically have shorter wait times than emergency rooms because they do not treat life-threatening medical emergencies. As a result, urgent care clinics can often see patients on a first-come, first-served basis, except for those who require immediate treatment as determined via the initial patient evaluation.

What type of provider will see me?

You can expect to encounter several different medical professionals at an urgent care clinic, including medical doctors, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and other healthcare professionals. Depending on the particular care you require, you will be seen by one of such medical providers at an urgent care clinic.

At Minit Medical Urgent Care, our team of medical professionals includes doctors with board certifications and specialties in family medicine, emergency medicine, dermatological medicine, osteopathic medicine, and occupational medicine, as well as certified physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, and physical therapists.
