Urgent Care Q & A

San Marcos Family Medicine

What types of illnesses or injuries are appropriate for urgent care service?

Urgent care is suitable for immediate, but non-emergency healthcare problems that can't wait for an appointment with a primary care doctor. This may include:

  • Joint sprains or potential fractures
  • Fever
  • Ear infection
  • Strep throat
  • Flu
  • Pneumonia
  • Cuts requiring medical attention
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Skin rashes
  • Moderate breathing difficulties
  • Eye irritation or redness
  • Dehydration, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Back problems

For patients experiencing one of these symptoms, the team at San Marcos Family Medicine is standing by to help.

What conditions or injuries warrant a trip to the emergency room?

Some conditions aren't appropriate for urgent care treatment. Patients experiencing any of these symptoms need to go to the emergency room:

  • Severe bleeding
  • Fever in a newborn
  • Deep wounds, gunshot wounds, or knife wounds
  • Severe head or back injury
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Problems connected to pregnancy
  • Signs of heart attack or stroke
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Poisoning
  • Compound fractures
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Poisoning

Patients experiencing these symptoms need to go to the emergency room. If the problem appears life-threatening, they need to call 911. San Marcos Family Medicine can provide treatment after the emergency medical care has taken place.

Can patients who aren't insured use urgent care?

Yes, but patients may need to pay at the time of service for their medical care if they don't have insurance.

Is urgent care appropriate for children?

Yes. Because the doctors and nurse practitioners at San Marcos Family Medicine are family practice practitioners, they're well equipped to diagnose and treat children.

Are appointments necessary for urgent care visits?

No. Patients can walk into Fastlane Clinic for convenient service offered quickly with no appointment. The visits are just 15 minutes, so they can even take place over someone's lunch break. Board-certified clinicians can help patients get the diagnostics and treatment they need for minor injuries and illnesses. Extended hours through 7 pm most weeknights and on Saturday mornings help patients get the care they need.
