Urgent Care Q & A

What services does urgent care provide?

At The Vine Medical Clinic, urgent care provides treatment for both injuries and illnesses. It also addresses any health concerns that may come up unexpectedly. 

The urgent care team at The Vine Medical Center can treat injuries, such as sprains and cuts. Other illnesses treated by urgent care include:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pink eye
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Minor injuries

The facility also provides COVID testing and on-site testing for strep throat, the flu, and mononucleosis.

How does urgent care differ from the emergency room?

Urgent care treats several issues that can also be seen in the emergency room. However, urgent care is a more efficient and personalized way to get the treatment you need.  

The most significant difference between urgent care and an emergency room is the severity of the conditions and treated injuries. The urgent care team is for minor injuries and illnesses that require treatment. An emergency room can also treat these, but it also treats life-threatening issues and complex injuries.

You can also be evaluated quicker in an urgent care setting, especially when you’re sick and require medicine. The urgent care team also provides testing and other services at The Vine Medical Center.

Is urgent care only for injuries?

Urgent care isn’t just for injuries. In fact, the team treats several illnesses and issues at the urgent care clinic. 

Urgent care is a way for you to get a minor issue treated quickly and efficiently the day it arises. You can walk into the facility and get seen the same day, making it a go-to for treatment for conditions like a cold or a wound.

If you need quick and personalized treatment, call the office today or book an appointment online and request to be seen. 

Do you need to follow up after your visit?

At The Vine Medical Clinic, the team may recommend that you come back for an evaluation in a few weeks after your visit. That is dependent on what you’re being seen for, as some minor conditions may not require you to come back for another appointment.

However, if you’re prescribed medication for an infection or medical condition, the team recommends a follow-up in several weeks to ensure the infection has cleared. That is also true if you’re being seen for a flare-up of a chronic problem.
