X-rays. Urgent care clinics can perform an x-ray without a referral from a primary care physician. They offer patients the opportunity to see a doctor and obtain an x-ray in one visit. This helps to save the patient time, pain, and anxiety.
EKG. Patients may need an EKG if they are experiencing heart arrhythmias, or any other uneasy heart related issues. Urgent care gives patients access to an EKG without needing to obtain a doctor’s referral. Most providers don’t have EKG technicians or even EKG machines, so urgent care is a great option.
Strep Testing. A sore throat may be a sign of a bacteria infection that requires a rapid strep test for diagnosis. An urgent care center can administer the test within a few minutes, giving patients the information they need to obtain treatment and regain their health.
Mono: Patients experiencing symptoms of mono will need to undergo a test to diagnose their condition and obtain treatment. Waiting for a doctor’s appointment can be difficult for patients struggling with symptoms. Urgent care makes healthcare convenient and affordable.
