Primary Care vs. Urgent Care vs. ER

With flu season in full swing, it is important to know when to seek medical treatment. Common cold and flu symptoms include a scratchy and sore throat, coughing, sneezing and stuffy nose, along with aches and pains. If you experience trouble breathing, chest pain, constant fever, pain when swallowing or constant severe cough, along with constant congestion and a headache, you should reach out to your Primary Care Physician.

If you cannot get in to see your Primary Care Physician, an urgent care clinic is your next best option. NARMC’s urgent care clinic, Mediquick, does not require an appointment and offers extended hours. Visit Mediquick on North Spring Street from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday, or 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Flu symptoms do not warrant a visit to the Emergency Room. ER visits should be limited to life- or limb-threatening emergencies.

Take a look at the chart below detailing when and where to go for appropriate medical care.
