Dr. Tamon and the team at LJ Medical Health and Wellness Clinic can also perform suture and staple removals during an urgent care visit.

How do urgent care and emergency care differ?

The main difference between urgent care and emergency is what the two types of care are designed to treat.

Urgent care can address countless acute injuries and illnesses that are not imminently life-threatening. In contrast, emergency care deals with life-threatening injuries and illnesses as well as serious or complex acute conditions.

Urgent care visits are more affordable than visits to the emergency room and you don’t have a long wait time. At emergency rooms, which are typically overcrowded, you may wait between three and four hours before anyone sees you. At LJ Medical Health and Wellness Clinic, you can typically see Dr. Tamon within 15 minutes.

As a rule, if your condition requires prompt or immediate attention, but it’s not life-threatening, limb-threatening, or critical, urgent care is the best choice for treatment.

Child Healthcare

Also, if you have a child younger than four months who develops a fever, take them to the emergency room for care. If you need urgent care, don’t suffer at home or spend unnecessary time and money at the emergency room. Instead, call or reach out online for urgent care services at LJ Medical Health and Wellness Clinic today.
