How an Urgent Care Appointment Works

How an Urgent Care Appointment Works

Sometimes you need to talk to a doctor right away, not in a few weeks when you can schedule an appointment. If your situation is a medical emergency, including a loss or change of consciousness, difficulty breathing, or chest pain, dial 911 for emergency help immediately.

For non-life-threatening illnesses, injuries, and other medical questions and complaints, there’s urgent care. At Monrovia Internal Medicine & Primary Care of Duarte, California, Dr. Ulin Sargeant and her team can help you handle whatever medical situation you or a loved one find yourselves in. Here’s what you need to know about urgent care appointments.

When should you seek urgent care?

Some medical situations need speedy care or evaluation to keep problems from progressing or complications from developing. Use urgent care to deal with medical conditions, illnesses, and injuries that need immediate attention but are not life-threatening emergencies.

Urgent care support can help with:

You also can get assistance with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes management.
