Visiting an Urgent Care Clinic When Traveling

urgent care

Our urgent care clinic treats local patients and those who are visiting the area on business or a vacation. As a tourist, it is wise to know what your options are when it comes to medical treatment. No one anticipates having an accident or becoming sick while on vacation or traveling for work. Unfortunately, this happens on a regular basis.

Urgent care when you need it

Those who are visiting for a work conference may suddenly come down with the flu or strep throat. Someone who is here on vacation may get it into an accident and suffer a sprain. The list is endless, but the reality is that the chance of falling ill or becoming hurt are just as high, if not higher, while traveling than they are when staying at home. This is because everyone is out and about and more active, creating additional opportunities for something to go wrong.

Airports and airplane travel alone can be incredibly dangerous for one’s health. All it takes is someone else on the flight to have a viral or bacterial infection and start coughing. That infection can spread throughout the plane and cause other people to start falling ill.

Naturally, this does not happen every time a person travels, but it is a real risk. Thus, it is important to know where and how to receive medical care in the event of an injury or illness.

Our urgent care clinic is here to help

We treat patients with a variety of health problems and this is a way to keep patients out of the emergency room while still delivering the care that is necessary to recover from any type of health condition. We offer a wide range of services and some of the conditions we treat are:

  • Common cold or the flu
  • Sinus infections
  • Strep throat
  • Sprains and strains
  • Injuries
  • Cuts
  • Ear infections

These are just a few of the common conditions for which we treat patients. However, it is important to note that we help patients who are suffering from all types of illnesses and injuries.

We are often the first stop to allow patients to be diagnosed and treated quickly. Then, if a tourist needs additional care, it can easily be obtained once home.

Visit our urgent care clinic

We do not require an appointment and you do not need to be a current patient to get help when needed. We invite you to visit our clinic anytime with a health issue if it is not life-threatening or need to get into the doctor at once and your regular one is not available to treat you.

When traveling, visiting our clinic provides a convenient way to get medical care without needing to visit the emergency room, which is more expensive and time-consuming. With no appointments required, all you need to do is stop by.
