FOR A CRITICAL OR LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY
If you or a loved one are not feeling well and sure that it is not an emergency situation, the Baton Rouge Clinic Urgent Care Center is the place to receive immediate medical attention. The board-certified doctors at our award-winning medical clinic in Baton Rouge, LA, are here to treat your non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses in a prompt, compassionate way.
Why Choose an Urgent Care Center
There are many different reasons why it makes sense to visit an urgent care center for your pressing medical needs. Sometimes you are not feeling well, but cannot get an appointment with your regular primary care doctor for days. Maybe you are worried that your daughter broke her arm on the soccer field and would like to have it x-rayed. Or, perhaps you do not have the time or energy to devote several hours sitting in your doctor’s waiting room just so that you can spend a couple of minutes taking a rapid strep test.
The difference between an urgent care center and a hospital emergency room is easy to explain: an urgent care center is the ideal location when you have an illness or injury that should be immediately examined or treated but is not in any way life-threatening. It is less expensive to see a doctor at an urgent care clinic compared to the ER, as well as more expedient. Urgent care centers are the perfect places to conduct simple laboratory tests or exams for many kinds of physical injuries.
For example, you may have been running a fever and experiencing chills and would like to rule out the flu. Possibly you are having an allergic reaction to something you ate. Maybe you sliced your thumb with a sharp knife while cooking dinner and think that you could use a couple of stitches. Our urgent care center is equipped to treat all of those situations in an effective, caring way. We are able to provide laboratory tests and certain x-rays to diagnose and treat the conditions that are making you unwell.
There are many benefits to the convenience that our medical clinic in Baton Rouge can offer:
- No appointment required
- Connection to online medical records
- Open 12 hours per day on weekdays
- Open 8 hours per day on weekends and holidays
