Urgent Care Medicine

Urgent Care Medicine is a specialty devoted to treating acute illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening and do not require hospitalization. Hospital emergency departments, in contrast, are designed and staffed to take care of critically ill or injured people 24 hours a day.

If you have a minor emergency, an urgent care clinic is a convenient and affordable alternative to the long waits and high costs found in most emergency departments. Urgent care clinics help relieve some of the congestion in emergency departments by taking care of patients who don’t have life threatening problems, allowing hospital ED’s to focus on those who truly need their specialized services.

What kind of medical services does Yubadocs Urgent Care provide?

We have digital X-ray, casting and splinting, suturing, ECG’s, spirometry, audiometry and basic lab services, and several prepackaged prescription medications at our clinic.  Having all these services at one location saves you time.

Here are some of the most common reasons for patient visits:

  • Simple fractures, sprains and bruises

  • Lacerations, abrasions and other wound care 

  • Acute illnesses such as flu’s, colds, fevers, and viral infections

  • Skin problems, such as rashes or boils

  • Ear infections

  • Tick bites

  • Ingrown or infected nails

  • Skin lesion biopsy or removal

  • Routine exams, including Department of Transportation, Sports and Camp Physicals

  • Women’s basic health care needs

When should I go to an Emergency Department instead of an Urgent Care Clinic?

  • If you need an ambulance

  • If you have severe chest pain

  • If you are bleeding profusely

  • If you are losing consciousness

  • Any other serious medical emergency that seems immediately life-threatening

Please call 911 immediately if you are having severe chest or abdominal pain, uncontrollable bleeding, severe allergic reaction, acute respiratory distress, significant traumatic injuries, an obstetrical emergency, or any life-threatening emergency.
