Oscar Medical Center | FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How is Urgent Care different that a trip to the ER?
Answer: Urgent care facilities are designed to treat those who need attention quickly but do not require the services of an emergency room visit. Urgent care facilities do not require appointments and typically maintain more flexible hours (including weekend and evening hours) than most doctors' offices.
Any threat to life, limb or eye sight should go to the emergency department. Chest pain, chest pressure, severe difficulty breathing, strokes, amputations, seizures, drug overdoses, severe burns, severe abdominal pain are examples of these conditions.
