How Does Urgent Care Work?

How Does Urgent Care Work Minden NVYou’ve probably heard of urgent care (sometimes it’s referred to as “immediate care” or “express care”), but if you’ve never been to one of these clinics before, you might be wondering exactly how urgent care works. Urgent care clinics are a great option for times when you need prompt care, but your condition isn’t life- or limb-threatening (if it is, make sure to get to an emergency room as soon as possible!). These clinics generally accept walk-in patients, so you don’t need to worry about making an appointment ahead of time, like you would with a primary care provider.
When you arrive at an urgent care clinic, you’ll check in like you would at a doctor’s office, then wait to be seen by one of the clinic’s providers. The receptionist will probably give you some forms to fill out while you’re waiting, where you’ll describe your medical history and the condition you’re currently experiencing. You’ll likely be seen by a doctor, a physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner, who will talk to you about your condition, perform an examination, and recommend a course of treatment.
Some urgent care clinics specialize in one specific area — like pediatrics or a certain type of injury — so it’s important to choose one that will serve your needs. And, if you have health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, you’ll also want to make sure that the clinic you choose accepts your plan.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
