If you are in need of urgent medical attention for an ailment that is not life-threatening, a walk-in clinic is a great option. At Joshua Emergicare, we have a team of caring doctors and highly-trained medical professionals that will thoroughly attend to your medical needs without need of an appointment.
What is the difference between a walk-in clinic and an emergency room?
An emergency room is an extension of a hospital that provides 24/7 care for life-threatening emergency situations. Walk-in clinics provide one-stop locations for emergency situations that are not life-threatening. They also are intended to reduce the burden on emergency rooms. Walk-in clinics also offer more affordable options for non-emergency medical situations, such as minor burns, cold and flu, sore throat, mild asthma, minor cuts and wounds, etc.
When and why should I go to a walk-in clinic?
If you have a medical emergency that is not life-threatening, and if your regular family doctor is not available for an appointment, a walk-in clinic is a convenient and quality option. For example, if you have suffered a sports injury, such as a sprained ankle or a severe but not life-threatening cut, our medical professionals at Joshua Emergicare can evaluate and treat your injury, and give you the resources you need to recover.
A visit to a walk-in clinic is also a significantly less expensive option than a visit to the emergency room for urgent medical care. Furthermore, because of the high volume of emergency room patients, you will likely have a smaller wait-time for your medical consultation than you will if you visit an emergency room for a medical emergency that is not life-threatening.
