Whenever you experience an injury or illness that requires medical attention, the waiting can almost be as bad as the injury or illness itself! As such, it makes sense to want to see a doctor as quickly as possible in such situations. At Restore Health Urgent Care, we can happily see you for a same-day appointment and provide prompt and effective treatment for any non-life-threatening illness or injury you experience.
Minor illnesses and injuries do not usually warrant a trip to the emergency room, especially when you consider the long wait times and high expenses of emergency room care! However, they are often serious enough to make it unrealistic to wait until an appointment opens up at your primary care clinic. Luckily, urgent care clinics were explicitly designed for situations that do not warrant a trip to the emergency room but still require urgent, same-day care! Not only do urgent care clinics accept walk-in appointments, but they are also able to see patients on a first-come, first-served basis, which significantly reduces the average time that patients spend in an urgent care waiting room. Urgent care services are also far less expensive than emergency room services.
For an excellent urgent care clinic in Palm Bay, Florida, that provides treatment for minor injuries and illnesses, you can find that and more at Restore Health Urgent Care! Our clinic is located at 1840 Eldron Blvd SE, Suite 1, in Palm Bay, FL.
Unless your work-related injury is a life-threatening medical emergency, you will likely benefit more from visiting an urgent care clinic. Urgent care clinics have shorter wait times, less expensive services, and typically accept most health insurance plans. However, urgent care clinics are not equipped to provide adequate care for life-threatening medical emergencies. As such, you should immediately go to the nearest emergency room if your work-related injury is life-threatening.
