You are slicing a tomato when the knife slips, and you cut your finger. Or maybe you tripped and fell, and now your knee is swollen and hurts. Or, perhaps you have a fever and sore throat, and are wondering if you have the flu. Should you try (and probably wait) to see your primary care doctor, or should you go to an urgent care center?

We have all had it happen: we sprain an ankle, our child has a high fever, a spouse is doubled over with abdominal pain…and, inevitably, these minor medical emergencies occur when your primary care physician is not available. You feel pretty certain you do not need to go to your local emergency room, but what about that Urgent Care center that just opened down the street? If you go there for treatment, can you trust the doctors there to provide you and your family with quality care and treatment? Have you ever wondered about the level of expertise the doctors staffing the Urgent Care Center have? The reality is that urgent care physicians are well-equipped to treat acute medical issues. These doctors are responsible for directly treating you and your family when you have acute illnesses or injuries.
