Urgent care is a category of walk-in care in a dedicated medical facility outside of a traditional emergency room. Urgent care centers primarily treat injuries or illnesses that can’t wait for your regular physician, but aren’t serious enough for the ER. Urgent care centers can treat routine injuries and illnesses such as the flu, perform physical exams, take X-rays, set broken bones, and more. Urgent care center wait times are often much shorter than an ER, and traditionally cost much less.
