When a serious injury or illness strikes, many people instinctively choose to head to the nearest emergency room. While it’s an understandable decision, it’s also common to be forced to wait hours for care at the ER. Plus, the wildly expensive bill you’ll receive later might make you want to head back for additional treatment!

The ER is a smart move if you have a life-threatening or serious medical situation. Otherwise, urgent care facilities are frequently a better decision. These clinics are usually staffed with both doctors and nurses, and you can be treated faster and for much less for common conditions like:

  • Animal bites
  • Minor sprains, burns, and cuts
  • Flu and fever

  • Cough, cold, and sore throat
  • Mild asthma
  • Urinary tract infections

  • Headaches
  • Joint and back pain
  • Infections and earaches
