What is urgent care?

Urgent care addresses on-demand health needs that cannot wait for a standard doctor appointment. Certain illnesses, injuries, and isolated symptoms are not severe enough to drive you to go to the emergency room, where you might have to wait hours before you see a physician. 

Preferred Medical Center takes walk-ins for urgent care to address your issues almost immediately.

During an urgent care visit, board-certified internist Dr. Pandya and the team work tirelessly to deliver answers about your health and how you feel. They can also provide treatment on the spot after providing any tests that are necessary to get an accurate diagnosis.

Preferred Medical Center offers standard urgent care services, and you can get them by appointment or at any time as a walk-in patient.

When should I visit for urgent care?

There are many reasons why you might need to come to Preferred Medical Center for an urgent care appointment. Urgent care diagnoses and treats many health conditions, ranging from mild to moderate, many of which need care in a timely manner. 

You should visit for urgent care if you have symptoms of:

  • A severe cold
  • Lingering cough
  • The flu
  • Strep throat
  • Sinus and allergy problems
  • A bladder infection
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Asthma
  • Stomach flu and other digestive issues

You should skip urgent care and go straight to the emergency room for any health concerns that are severe enough to threaten your life, your long-term cognitive function, or any of your limbs. 

Which services can I get during my urgent care visit?

When you make an urgent care visit at Preferred Medical Center, the team walks you through the routine of taking your measurements and vital signs before going over and updating your medical history. They ask you to provide your symptoms and any other details that could contribute to an accurate diagnosis.

The next services you get depend on your suspected reason for visiting. The team makes recommendations based on your reported symptoms. You may need:

  • Flu testing
  • Flu vaccination
  • STD testing
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Blood work

The team may recommend further testing or refer you to a specialist if they have additional questions or concerns about your health status. Once they make a diagnosis, they can recommend treatment or prescribe any necessary medications.
