Go to your doctor for preventive care, to stay on top of your chronic conditions, or for an appointment if you feel sick. It’s generally the most cost-effective option.

Having a doctor is important. Your doctor knows your medical history and can help treat illnesses or conditions before they become serious. Your doctor can also coordinate care with other doctors.

At your doctor’s office, you can also see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. You may be able to see one right away if your doctor isn’t available.

You can usually walk in to Urgent Care during hours your doctor isn’t available. Go here if you need immediate care and your situation is not life-threatening. 

Generally, the cost to you may be higher than a doctor’s office visit.

Why Urgent Care?

Urgent Care centers’ average wait time is 30 minutes or less, according to the Urgent Care Association of America.

Urgent Care centers can treat common conditions like:

  • Torceduras y esguinces
  • Rashes and minor burns
  • Síntomas de resfrío y gripe

The ER is open 24/7. Go to the ER immediately or call 911 if you are in a life-threatening situation.

It may cost you more than Urgent Care or a doctor’s office visit to go to the ER. Check your plan benefits so you are informed.

Go to the ER if you have symptoms like:

  • Dolor fuerte en el pecho
  • Dificultad para respirar
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Pérdida del conocimiento
  • Heavy bleeding that won’t stop or large open wounds
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Dolor fuerte que no mejora
  • Signs of stroke like sudden weakness, blurred vision or slurred speech
  • Moderate to severe burns
  • Serious head, neck or back injuries
  • Fractura de huesos mayores
