Scope of Practice

Urgent Care was developed for patients with acute illness needing a same-day appointment. The staff of physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can treat most minor medical problems such as cuts, bruises, simple fractures, sprains or strains, minor infections, fevers or illness. For more serious and immediate life-threatening situations like: difficulty breathing, pain or pressure in the chest, severe abdominal pain, severe burns or symptoms of a stroke, contact or go directly to the local emergency room. Urgent Care is also not intended for routine or chronic medical care. It is important to see a primary care provider for regular and preventive health services.
