When to Visit Urgent Care

You probably think to visit the doctor when your nagging cough has lasted for more than a few weeks, or if you had a sudden injury on the job. Your options for medical care are more than likely a visit to your primary care physician, or the emergency room.
You know booking an appointment with your primary care physician is a far stretch, but you give it a try anyways.  You call to set up an appointment, only to find out the your physician isn’t available for the next couple of weeks, so they can’t squeeze you in last minute.
Your next option is to visit the emergency room.  To avoid the cost of the ambulance, you decide to drive yourself there.  You have to suffer through the wait, as there are other patients with life-threatening ailments.  The cost of your hospital bill makes you cringe.
There is, however, a great alternative to both the ER and your PCP: urgent care.
