Urgent Care or emergency room?

At Accelerated Urgent Care, we have designed all of our urgent care clinics to solve some of the most common challenges and frustrations that patients have with medical care today.

But, we are not an emergency facility. If you have questions about whether or not you should go to urgent care or the emergency room, see below.

Go to emergency room if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Deadly allergic reactions such as swelling or inability to swallow
  • Symptoms of a heart attack: chest pain, shortness of breath, dizzines
  • Signs of a stroke: incomprehensible speaking, weakness in one arm, double vision
  • Life-threatening burns
  • Serious falls: greater than 6 feet
  • Severe abdominal pain or chest pain
  • Major head injury including loss of consciousness
  • Electrical shock
  • Altered mental status
  • Near drowning episodes
  • Open fractures where bone penetrates skin
  • Amputation of a body part
  • Severe choking: cannot talk or breathe
