Urgent care and walk-in clinics are an important part of the healthcare system. They take a lot of unnecessary strain off of the emergency room and provide top quality care without breaking the bank. While urgent care and walk-in clinics are not as well-equipped as an emergency room, they provide many services for injuries and illnesses that are not life-threatening and are open later than a typical doctor’s office.

Is a walk in clinic the same as urgent care?

While most urgent care clinics are walk-in, as in there is no appointment necessary, a walk-in clinic is not always an urgent care. The primary differences here are what services are offered and the personnel on staff. Walk-in clinics are typically staffed by nurse practitioners or physician assistants, and thus offer less specialized services. They provide basic healthcare needs, like cold and flu symptoms and treatment for mild cuts and injuries.

As for an urgent care clinic, they are typically staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants as well, and usually have a doctor in the office or on call. Their technology and equipment is more advanced than a walk-in clinic, and can treat mild to moderate injuries and illnesses, like a minor fracture or asthma. As with both places, in severe or life-threatening situations, patients will be referred to a hospital emergency room.

Can I go to urgent care instead of the doctor?

While it is possible for anyone to go to urgent care, it is important to note that everyone should establish a relationship with a primary care physician. Having a primary contact for healthcare ensures team-based healthcare delivery led by a provider. The goal is to prevent escalation of conditions due to the lack of preventive care and to maximize health outcomes.

Without a primary contact for healthcare, patients have a greater potential to end up in life-threatening situations in an emergency room, sometimes with fatal outcomes. Other benefits include integrated and comprehensive care, a history of medical records and treatments, and most often affordability of quality care.

Do I need a referral from my doctor to go to urgent care?

While urgent care provides specialized care, there is no referral needed to visit one of these clinics. In fact, there isn’t even an appointment needed.
