When You Should Call Urgent Care

Urgent care facilities can be great resources for medical needs that aren’t life-threatening, but still call for fast attention. Common times when people visit urgent care centers include:

  • Sprains, strains, cuts, and burns should be evaluated in order to prevent further injury and facilitate healing. 
  • While many people will just try and tough out their colds at home, there are certain situations where an urgent care center can help alleviate some of the symptoms faster than self-medicating. It's often best to get checked out by a professional, so we can diagnose any underlying issues and treat them accordingly.
  • Infections like strep throat, urinary tract infections, ear infections, and sinus infections require treatment as soon as possible, in order to prevent further complications down the line. Our Fairbanks urgent care facility has the means of diagnosing these types of common illnesses quickly and getting the right medicine into your hands. 
  • If someone experiences chest pains or difficulty breathing, that’s something that requires medical attention without delay. When you or someone you love suffers from these serious symptoms, call us right away at (832) 430-7796, or just get down to the office for a walk-in appointment. 

These are just a handful of examples of when seeking an urgent care facility is appropriate and necessary. When you or someone you love has been feeling under the weather, or has sustained an injury that requires medical attention, don't hesitate—see us today. 

Is Urgent Care Better Than the Emergency Room? 

Visiting an urgent care facility is often a better option than going to the emergency room. The benefit of visiting an urgent care center is that a patient can be seen quickly, without waiting for long hours in the emergency room, and receive personalized attention from a trained staff.

Furthermore, it’s not uncommon for wait times at an emergency room to be at least twice as long as what someone will face at our urgent care office. Of course, every day is a little bit different, but it’s fair to say that on balance, urgent care facilities—including Brazos Urgent Care—move more efficiently than what people will experience in the hospital ER. And that’s assuming a walk-in appointment—if a person is able to call ahead, they can have the security of knowing that our staff will be ready and available when they arrive. 

The cost of visits to an urgent care facility are typically lower than one would expect at a hospital’s emergency room. The fact our Fairbanks urgent care office accepts most major insurance plans can further make our care affordable for people.
