What are Urgent Care Clinics?

Urgent care clinics offer an alternative to the emergency room with the added bonus of being less expensive and usually having less waiting time.  They started in the 90s because many people were upset they could not visit their primary physician during the weekend or at night.  ER’s can do everything that an urgent care center can, but the reverse is not true.  There are specific symptoms and treatments that should only be treated at the ER.  A general rule of thumb is if it is non-life threatening, but still can’t wait till the next day or for the primary physician, urgent care is a good option.
