Know when to go to Urgent Care vs ER

Did you know that over 80% of Emergency Room visits can be treated at an urgent care facility?

Parents giving children piggyback rides outdoorsAt NextCare, we want our patients to be as informed as possible about their medical choices.  That’s why we strive to provide you with the most up-to-date information and methods for treating your urgent injuries and illnesses.

Emergency rooms are not the fastest or most cost effective choice when you need immediate health care, and often it takes days to get in to see a primary care physician or specialist. You could wait hours in the E.R. for less serious health concerns, and that’s too much time and money lost. That’s why NextCare Urgent Care is the ideal alternative for your health care needs. Clinics are operated by top quality medical professionals, so our patients can be confident that they’re getting the highest level of care.
