Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room
When a healthcare need arises, what do you do when you don’t have a primary care physician or when your preferred provider is unavailable?
Instead of rushing to the emergency room, you can go to an urgent care center like Pelican Urgent Care, which is a cost-effective, time-efficient alternative when you and your loved ones need treatment. You not only get immediate treatment, but you can get it at a location that is close to home.
How can you tell if you need to go to the ER or to an Urgent Care Clinic?
