What Is Considered An Urgent Care Condition
Urgent Care centers are setup to assist patients with an illness or injury that does not appear to be life –threatening, but also can’t wait until the next day, or for primary care doctor to see them.
For the days and hours that primary care physicians are closed, urgent care centers provide easy access quality healthcare. At Mount Sinai, our attention to detail and commitment to patient care and satisfaction ensure that patients with urgent medical needs receive the best medical expertise days, nights, weekends and most holidays.
Urgent care is not a substitute for emergency care. In general, an emergency condition is one that can permanently impair or endanger the life of an individual.
