Urgent Care Clinic

Using an Urgent Care Clinic

When you can't get in to a doctor's office, an urgent care clinic is a great alternative. According to the CDC, 80% of people who went to the emergency room for non-life threatening conditions did so because their doctor's office was closed or they had no other option.

A FastMed Urgent Care clinic is the other option: convenient, affordable, and open 365 days per year to treat common illnesses and minor injuries. When you go to the ER for a condition that needs immediate care, not emergency care, it will cost you a lot more than an urgent care clinic.
