When the clock is ticking and you need help quickly, knowing how to determine whether you can come to AS Medical Group Madison Heights Urgent Care, or you need to go to the emergency room, can be a bit tricky. That’s why, we’ve broken it down by cost, wait time, and typical symptoms so you don’t have waste a single minute figuring out where you need to be.
While the cheapest option is to always go to your primary care doctor for everything you need, that’s not always possible. When sudden illness or injury strikes, there’s no time to waste, which means you need to decide if paying a lower cost is a deciding factor in where you go for care. If it is, you’ll definitely want to head over to AS Medical Group Madison Heights Urgent Care. Emergency rooms have the highest record co-pay rates, meaning you will always end up spending more for services that are virtually the same as ours!
Average Wait Times
While technically having an appointment somewhere allows you to be seen right away with “no wait,” the truth is you can still end up waiting days, potentially even weeks on months, for an appointment opening. On the other hand, going to an emergency room isn’t much better. If your situation is not dire, you might end up waiting endless hours to be seen by a doctor since there will likely constantly be more people arriving in greater need of help than you. That means, with all factors considered, coming to AS Medical Group Madison Heights Urgent Care really is the fastest way to receive care. Our average wait time is 20-30 minutes or less, and you’ll never have to worry about someone else coming in and jumping ahead of you in queue.
Symptoms & Conditions
Sometimes, all you need to do to make your choice is think rationally about the symptoms. There are of course plenty of serious signs that you might need to go to a hospital right away, but a lot of the time emotions can make us feel like whatever is happening is more serious than it actually is. For example:
