Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a focus of health care that addresses acute illness, injuries, and other unexpected medical events. These issues often develop suddenly and require immediate medical attention to prevent additional complications.

Weekend Urgent Care offers urgent care services seven days a week to address unexpected injuries or illnesses. The providers use on-site diagnostic technologies, including COVID-19 testing and influenza testing, to identify the cause of your symptoms, so you can start the treatment you need.

When should I schedule an urgent care visit?

You should schedule an urgent care visit if you or your child has symptoms you can’t treat on your own or if your symptoms worsen, even with treatment.

Weekend Urgent Care provides on-site services to address:

  • Pain
  • High fever
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Skin rash
  • Sprains or strains
  • Minor cuts or abrasions
  • Nasal congestion or runny nose
  • Breathing difficulties or shortness of breath

If you’re not sure whether your condition warrants an urgent care visit, call Weekend Urgent Care to speak to the staff about your symptoms. They can determine if you need to visit the office for an evaluation or can recommend home remedies to relieve your symptoms. 

What happens during an urgent care visit?

During your urgent care visit at Weekend Urgent Care, the medical providers learn more about your symptoms and review your health history. They perform a thorough physical exam and may order blood work or other diagnostic tests.

For instance, if you have a sore throat, you may need a rapid test to diagnose a strep throat infection. Weekend Urgent Care also offers on-site COVID-19 testing if you have symptoms of an upper respiratory infection.

Based on your exam and testing results, the medical providers create a treatment plan to help you feel better. They can provide medications, administer wound care, and recommend home care strategies to help you feel better.

If you need additional medical attention, the providers can refer you to a specialist or local hospital and help you schedule a timely appointment, so you can avoid delays in treatment.
