When you’re faced with determining whether or not you need to visit an emergency room or simply visit a doctor, it can be difficult to decide which is the best option. At Banner Urgent Care we help you to determine why urgent care is the better option for non-emergency medical situations. On this page we will help you answer the questions, what does urgent care do, and what does urgent care treat?
While large hospitals are important for life-threatening emergencies, they are expensive and time consuming compared to the cheaper, quicker alternative: urgent care. Knowing what urgent care does can help you to realize that walk-in medical centers like Banner Urgent Care can provide more than “just urgent care.” From OTC medications to urgent care weight loss, from sports physicals to remedies and treatment for basic illnesses and injuries, urgent care covers it all.
What Does Urgent Care Treat?
Urgent care caters to a number of different medical situations, in addition to the common injuries and illnesses.
Physicals at urgent care are a cost-effective way to get ready for the school year or to get caught up for all necessary medical examinations prior to getting involved in an active sport. Sports physicals and regular physicals allow individuals and families to get an overview of their medical health and will allow the doctor to identify any immediate concerns while clearing them to be enrolled in school or an extracurricular activity like an active sport.
Over the Counter (OTC) Medication
Over the counter (OTC) medications are a popular medication choice for individuals all across the world. At Banner Urgent Care, you get a comprehensive list of over the counter medication to help you with basic aches and pains without needing to get a prescription from your healthcare professional. At Banner Urgent Care, our OTC medication is offered at a rate of $8.00 per package.
We provide a number of different types of medication to treat for pain, coughing or colds, allergies, abdominal pain, and other types of medication. Click here to find a list of the types of medication we provide at Banner Urgent Care.
