What Is An Urgent Care Center?

An urgent care center allows you to see a doctor without an appointment. You can just walk-in. Urgent care is for injuries and illnesses that need the attention of a doctor but not necessarily the emergency room. Some of the common urgent care ailments are sore throat, fever, rash, minor injury, headache as well as vomiting, flu, and respiratory symptoms such as asthma and allergies. Health Express Urgent Care also treats routine matters such as physicals and vaccinations.
