Overview of Our Walk-in Clinics

With a lot on your plate with family, work, and a never-ending to-do list, it’s not always easy to schedule a doctor’s visit when a sudden illness or injury occurs. In many cases, your health condition might not be bad enough to warrant a trip to the emergency room. Moreover, ERs are expensive, stressful, and usually involve hours of wait time. This is where patients choose UrgentMED because we take out the stress and high costs out of the equation, all while providing outstanding professionalism, affordability, and convenience.

We are present at numerous locations throughout California, including Anaheim, Culver City, Los Angeles, CA, and many more.

What You Should Know About Walk in Care

Should you go to the ER or an urgent care center because you have a cut on your finger or an ache in your chest? It can be confusing for sure. So we’ve made things simpler for you by offering this helpful summary of where you can get the appropriate medical assistance you may require under different circumstances.

Visit to the ER vs. Visit to an Urgent Care Clinic

A trip to the emergency department, often known as the emergency room, is usually required for life-threatening conditions such as a heart attack or significant head damage. An urgent care center should be used for any disease or injury that does not seem like a life threatening condition yet cannot wait until the next day.

When the office of your primary care doctor is closed, urgent care centers give convenient access to high quality treatment. Patients with urgent health needs receive the most outstanding level of health care at UrgentMED because of our medical expertise and our latest medical equipment and technology. Our services are available daily, including most holidays.

What Constitutes an Emergency Situation?

A life-threatening emergency medical situation has the potential to cause serious damage or pose danger to your life. If you have a medical emergency that appears to be life-threatening, visit the ER or call us right away for advice. The following are a few examples of life-threatening conditions that necessitate immediate medical attention at an ER:

  • A bone bulging through the skin, known as a compound fracture
  • Convulsions, seizures, or consciousness loss
  • Knife or bullet wounds that are deep
  • Fever or sore throat in an infant who are under 3 months of age
  • Bleeding that is uncontrollable
  • Burns ranging from moderate to severe
  • Poisoning
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Injury to the neck, head, or back that is serious
  • Breathing problems or severe chest pain
  • Weight loss complications
  • Symptoms of a heart attack, like chest pain lasting longer than two minutes
  • Symptoms of a stroke include numbness, vision loss, paralysis, slurred speech, and confusion.
  • Feelings of suicidal or murderous intent

Guide to Walk-in Care

According to surveys, patients report an average wait time of several days for consultations with their primary care doctor. Patients want and deserve more, especially when it is a matter of health and well-being. At UrgentMED, we are spread across more than 36 locations, including Los Angeles, CA, San Pedro St, Culver City, Robertson blvd, and several more. We have some of the most dedicated doctors and helpful staff in the field in our walk-in clinics. We accept most major insurance and are open every day, so come visit us and get healed in a safe, professional, and caring environment.

The Demand for Urgent Care Walk-in Clinics

We live in the era of immediacy. If you wish to watch a movie, you can download it or stream it right away. You can pick up the phone and have groceries delivered to you within an hour if you need them. Health care should be no exception!

With this philosophy and commitment, urgent care services such as UrgentMED have grown at a higher rate than almost any other type of health care. It’s also why “urgent care” is searched for almost five times more than “family doctor” or “primary care doctor” search terms by health care consumers.

When people are injured or sick, they want the same access to top-rated health care providers – after hours, on holidays, or even on weekends – without the expense and inconvenience of going to the emergency department.

How Do Walk-ins Help the Communities?

Urgent care clinics help identify and address non-emergent health care requirements such as sinus infections, strep throat, and injuries such as sprains, bone fractures, scrapes, burns, and cuts.

In addition, urgent care clinics also deliver preventative care services such as annual physical checkups, and vaccines like the flu shot. It assumes the role of primary care doctor for the tens of millions of people who don’t have one.

We also have dedicated professionals for pediatric urgent care for children between the ages of one and seventeen.

Services and Costs of Urgent Care

Patients seeking treatment for minor injuries and illness will find urgent care clinics (as a part of the health care category of walk-in clinics) to be a practical option. School and annual physicals, immunizations and seasonal flu vaccines, treatment of illnesses such as colds, stomach aches, ear, sinus infections, and more are frequently offered at an urgent care center.

You can also be treated for injuries like bites, burns, breaks, and sprains. While you might think of visiting the emergency room rather than an urgent care clinic, you will likely have a much lesser wait time, greater care and convenience, and a lower fee when you choose urgent care.

Even without an insurance card or for treatments that are not covered by insurance, your visit should cost within a reasonable price range, along with the expense of any labs, tests, or diagnostic imaging. Urgent care will be equivalent to getting consultations with a specialist with a co-pay if you have insurance.

Hours and Wait Times for Urgent Care in Your Neighborhood

Even within the same organization, separate urgent care centers may have varying service hours. A dedicated urgent care clinic such as UrgentMED will make sure that your wait times are minimized and you are able to receive the timely and effective health care you need.
