What is an Urgent Care?

Scioto Urgent Care is a convenient alternative when you can’t get a timely appointment with your own physician. The urgent care is open everyday, including evenings and weekends. You do not need to be a regular Scioto Urgent care patient to enjoy our convenience and medical care. No appointment is necessary. Just walk in and receive care when you need it most.

Scioto Urgent Care is for non-emergency problems such as sore throats, ear infections, minor burns, or cuts and bruises. More serious injuries or illnesses, such as heart attack and stroke are best treated at an emergency department. Contact your primary care physician for chronic problems like depression or diabetes.

Urgent care facilities are also an important resource for individuals who may not have an established primary care physician. An example would be a new resident who has overtaxed him/herself during a move thus and comes down with a cold or flu or who sprains an ankle while moving furniture into a new home. Due to the urgency an urgent care will see a patient the same day, where some physicians may be unable to accept new patients and / or get you in for several days or even weeks.

Another benefit to an urgent care is their extended hours. Most are open later in the evening and on weekends. And for those people who realize they need a medication refill on the weekend, the urgent care physician can also order refills in most cases.
