Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a type of medical care for injury or illness that doesn’t pose an immediate danger to your life but can’t wait for a doctor’s appointment. If you or a loved one needs medical care, but it’s after hours, on the weekend, or you can’t get an appointment soon enough, urgent care at Studio City Urgent Care and Medical Center, Inc can help.

Some examples of urgent medical conditions are:

  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Flu
  • Sore throat, cough, or fever
  • Ear infections
  • Vomiting or dehydration
  • Diarrhea
  • Sprains or strains
  • Minor burns
  • Small lacerations that require stitches
  • Abscesses
  • STD testing
  • Allergic reactions
  • Mild to moderate asthma attack

What’s the difference between urgent care and the emergency room?

Urgent care is a great option for non-life-threatening conditions. If you or a loved one gets injured or comes down with an illness quickly, Studio City Urgent Care and Medical Center, Inc can quickly evaluate, diagnose, and treat many common conditions to help you heal faster. 

When you can’t wait for a regular doctor’s appointment, urgent care can give you the care you need promptly, including X-rays, and lab testing to diagnose conditions. Treatments can include antibiotics, pain medication, stitches, and more. 

If you’re facing a life-threatening condition, the emergency room is the best place to go. Emergency rooms have the facilities, staff, and equipment needed to save lives and limbs in serious medical emergency situations. 

What is a medical emergency? 

A medical emergency is a life-threatening situation that has the potential to permanently impair your life. In the case of a medical emergency, you should always call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Examples of emergency conditions include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Heart attack symptoms
  • Stroke symptoms
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Deep wounds
  • Pregnancy-related complications
  • Suicidal or homicidal feelings
