If you think that you need to talk to a doctor, then it is best to book the appointment without delay. Immediate diagnosis and treatment are recommended so you can prevent unnecessary problems that can happen.
Unfortunately, some patients are delaying general medical care, which leads to emergency situations or unnecessary problems that could have been avoided. We encourage you to be proactive with your medical care – our staff is here to assist when you need services.
When an emergency happens, the best thing you can do is call 911 or come to our emergency room as soon as possible. We offer skilled medical staff, personal protective equipment, and the on-demand emergency care that you need.
Basic medical services might be able to wait, but an emergency could lead to a life-threatening situation. If there is any reason to believe that you might be experiencing a medical emergency, we encourage you to come to our ER as soon as possible.
At iCare ER and Urgent Care, we offer an initial evaluation to determine whether urgent care services or ER services are needed. This process gives you the peace of mind to know that you won’t pay ER prices if your health concerns can be treated in the urgent care.
