When an injury or illness pops up unexpectedly, it’s not always clear where you should look for care first. Primary care physician? Walk-in clinic? The emergency room? In many cases, if you’re experiencing anything less than an emergency that is life-threatening, medical professionals will recommend either booking in with your family doctor or heading to urgent care.
Urgent care facilities provide a wide spectrum of services for acute and chronic conditions, however, they can also be used for preventative health care as well. This includes routine examinations, wellness checks, medical screenings, STI checks, and immunizations.
Services offered at urgent care facilities focus on diagnosing and alleviating the following conditions:
● Allergic reactions
● Back pain
● Broken bones
● Cold and flu
● Conjunctivitis (Pink eye)
● Dental abscesses
● Ear infection
● Insect bites
● Kidney stones
● Minor burns
● Minor lacerations
● Pelvic pain
● Sore throat
● Upper Respiratory Infection
It’s important to keep in mind that urgent cares function to support non-emergency medical care. If you require a higher level of care than can provide at the urgent care clinic, your attending doctor will refer you to either the nearest emergency room and/or a specialist.
Urgent care centers tend to have lower levels of volume during normal working hours (9-5). In contrast, these facilities tend to be busiest before or after working hours, as many people will go in before or after their work/school day.
However, it’s important to note that wait times for urgent care should never be excessive no matter when you go in. This is because these facilities focus on efficient and professional care, often seeing patients on a first-come-first-serve basis, which tends to speed up the rate of care. It’s one of the reasons why urgent cares are preferred by many patients: because you still get exceptional, high-level treatment without having to wait an absorbent amount of time to be seen by a doctor.
The business of an urgent care facility will vary depending on the location of the clinic, the time of year, the clinic’s hours of operation, the number of staff on hand, and what services are being offered.
Typically, urgent care centers are busiest during the days when other healthcare facilities are closed. For example, weekends tend to be much busier than weekdays, as many specialists and primary care physicians don’t work on Saturdays and Sundays. Holidays also tend to be busy as urgent care facilities tend to stay open whereas most other medical facilities (besides the ER) tend to close down.
Urgent care centers are known for being significantly more affordable than specialized or emergency care. They offer safe, cost-effective, and efficient non-emergency care for those that need it, making it the preferred choice for many patients – especially those that don’t have (1) a primary care physician and/or (2) health insurance.
In Palm Bay, Florida, the average cost of a basic urgent care visit without insurance costs will run you anywhere from $50 to $300. The pricing may vary depending on the individual rates of the clinic, the complexity and/or severity of your condition, and if you require more in-depth testing (such as bloodwork, x-rays, ultrasounds, etc.)
If you do require additional services and testing for a more complicated or complex condition, you can expect to pay anywhere between $300-$600 out of pocket.
