Clinics: Convenient Care vs. Urgent Care
Medical clinics are changing the way we access healthcare. In the past, you had two choices: a doctor’s office or the emergency room. Neither one worked well for non-life-threatening illness or injury. FastMed Urgent Care offers a solutions: our locations began appearing in neighborhoods to offer quality care for common health concerns, treating ear infections, bronchitis, sprains; stitching up cuts and giving flu shots and vaccinations. FastMed Urgent Care medical clinics opened early and stayed late every day of the year – just type in your zip code to find your location.
Convenient care clinics also began to bring healthcare into the community. A convenient care clinic is normally located in a supermarket or drug store. Sometimes these private clinics have designated space to provide preventative health services. Other times, they are created for a specific purpose, like a flu shot clinic. These clinics are not normally equipped with the diagnostic tools or equipment that you would find at an urgent care clinic like FastMed.
FastMed Urgent Care clinics are more like a doctor’s office than a convenience store clinic. Our walk-in clinics deliver immediate care. Come in when you’re sick or injured to get immediate treatment from a healthcare professional. At FastMed, we can take x-rays at our clinics, and, unlike the doctor’s office, we have labs to do testing on site. That means we don’t have to send samples to an outside lab, wasting time and money.
