Urgent Care or ER?

It’s important to get emergency care when you need it, but it’s not your only option for after-hours care when it’s not a true emergency.

Emergency room: If a life, limb or organ is at risk, always go to the ER. See the list below for specific symptoms and conditions.

Urgent care: Go to a same-day urgent care clinic for any medical problems or everyday illnesses or injuries that you might see a primary care doctor for (if they were available). See below for common reasons to visit a walk-in clinic.
