Urgent Care vs Emergency Room

Do you know the best place to go when you’re sick?

Urgent Care

Accidents and unexpected illness happen. When you need immediate treatment for non life-threatening injuries and illnesses, try an urgent care center. Liberty Urgent Care provides nearly all the services available at a traditional doctor’s office, with the added convenience of digital x-ray machines and lab testing on-site. You can use insurance, or self-pay at affordable rates.

Liberty Urgent Care can treat:

  • Cold and Flu
  • Fevers
  • Allergies and Sinus Infection
  • Cuts and Lacerations, including Stitches
  • Sprains, Strains and Broken Bones – with X-rays done On-Site
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Earaches
  • Bug Bites and Stings
  • Acute Pain
  • Minor Wounds and Burns
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Allergic Reactions
  • and more!

Emergency Room

While an Emergency Room is equipped to treat minor injuries or illnesses, you’ll likely end up waiting much longer and paying a lot more than you would at an urgent care. A visit to the emergency department should be reserved for true medical emergencies, such as trauma, surgical procedures, and life threatening situations.

Call 911 or go straight to the ER for:

  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Chest pain
  • Head injury
  • Severe trauma
  • Open fractures
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Poisoning
  • Severe burns
