You've cut your thumb with a knife. It's bleeding, and a simple bandage won't do. You might even need stitches. Unfortunately, it's also Sunday afternoon, and you can't wait until Monday morning to call your doctor's office. What do you do?
Consider going to an urgent care center, such as Urgent Care in Albemarle, which provides fast medical help for situations that are not life-threatening.
When it's urgent. Urgent care centers are places where you can walk in without an appointment and be seen by a medical professional without having to wait very long. Urgent care offers a convenient alternative when your doctor's office is closed or when you can't get an appointment as quickly as you need one.
We coordinate your care by sending a detailed visit summary to your primary care physician for appropriate follow-up treatment. Walk-ins are always welcome.
When it's an emergency. Urgent care is not emergency care-it shouldn't be used for life-threatening problems.
If you think you or someone else has a true emergency, call 911 or go to an emergency department.
Our services are designed to promptly address conditions that require immediate attention, such as:
- Sprains, strains, fractures
- Minor cuts and burns
- Urinary tract infections
- Removal of foreign objects from the ear, nose or skin
- On-site x-ray
