Frequently Asked Questions

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is an area of medicine that combines features of family and emergency medicine to provide prompt care for time-sensitive illnesses or injuries. Brock Family Care offers urgent care services for patients who can’t wait for a regular appointment but don’t need to go to the emergency room (ER).

By providing urgent care, Brock Family Care helps save patients time and money that they would otherwise spend at the ER.

When would I need urgent care?

Mrs. Brock recommends urgent care for patients who can’t wait at least 24 hours to seek medical attention. You may need urgent care if you experience:

  • A bad cough
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
  • Broken finger or toe
  • Wrist or ankle sprain
  • Sore throat
  • Eye irritation
  • Earache
  • Fever
  • Minor cuts or burns
  • Insect bites

You may also need urgent care if you have a chronic condition, such as diabetes, and are experiencing worsening symptoms. 

When should I visit the emergency room over urgent care?

Urgent care facilities don’t have the equipment necessary to treat life-threatening emergencies. If you experience a serious illness or injury, you should go to your nearest emergency room right away. Mrs. Brock recommends emergency care to treat:

  • Chest pain
  • Bleeding that won’t stop
  • Visibly broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Serious burns
  • Dislocated joints
  • Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
