"What is urgent care?
An urgent care, or urgent care center, is a medical office that diagnoses and treats non-life threatening illnesses and medical emergencies.
Portland Clinic of Holistic Health proudly offers naturopathic urgent care services to our established patients, in addition to routine medical services, including laboratory work, and biopsies.
And quite often, the team can treat urgent medical needs with an all-natural, holistic approach, including Bio-Thermal Therapy.
What"s the difference between an ER and urgent care facility?
Emergency rooms treat life-threatening emergencies like heart attacks, strokes, and loss of vision. Urgent care, on the other hand, works to treat conditions that require immediate treatment but aren"t a threat to your life.
Emergency rooms also treat patients based on their level of need, so if you suffer a sprained ankle while playing a game of basketball, you may have to wait hours to see a doctor if someone ahead of you is having trouble breathing or experiencing chest pain.
What types of illnesses and injuries does urgent care treat?
Fingernail and toenail injuries
The team also performs minor surgical procedures, including casting of fractures, biopsies, and stitches. Patients can also access laboratory services such as blood testing, strep throat screenings, and sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing. If you need to see a specialist, the team can also provide you with a referral."
