Urgent Care Needs Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is the immediate treatment for conditions that aren’t life-threatening but are best treated right away. Life-threatening conditions should be treated at a hospital emergency room. However, for conditions that need immediate attention, Plantation Medical Clinic offers same-day appointments so patients can receive immediate attention.

What conditions should receive urgent care?

Same-day appointments are available for:

  • A cut or wound requiring stitches or sutures
  • Treatment and/or prescriptions for colds or flu
  • Diagnosis and prescriptions for urinary tract infections or bladder infections
  • Asthma attack or difficulty breathing
  • High fever
  • Nausea/vomiting, prolonged diarrhea, or dehydration
  • Sprains
  • Swelling resulting from an injury, bite, or infection
  • Ear infections
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

If someone is unconscious, has possible broken bones, is bleeding profusely, experiencing seizures or convulsions, has a neck or back injury, or is experiencing chest pain, then calling 911 or going to the nearest hospital emergency room is the safest course of action. Severe burns and pregnancy complications should also be treated at the hospital, as well as concussions or slurred speech.

Unsure whether to go to the hospital or Plantation Medical Clinic, or questioning whether or not an urgent care visit is necessary? You can call and ask the staff at Plantation Medical Clinic if you’re unsure whether or not your condition requires urgent care.

How can I get an urgent care appointment?

When you call Plantation Medical Clinic, the staff can arrange for the earliest available appointment. While calling is the best option — and it can prevent patients from waiting for a long time — patients who arrive without calling will also be seen as quickly as possible. The staff always does its best to accommodate patients in need of prompt medical attention.

Don’t wait and suffer when a medical condition requires immediate attention. Plantation Medical Clinic is there for you whenever you need them. Waiting to treat certain conditions can result in worse symptoms, and possibly make them harder to treat.

Let the professionals at Plantation Medical Clinic treat urgent care needs as soon as they arise. Call the office or visit to get the medical attention you need right away.
