Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a type of medical practice where the team can diagnose, evaluate, treat, and follow up on mild to moderate medical concerns and injuries. During a virtual urgent care visit with the team at VirtuaReal Health, the team reviews your medical history before evaluating your symptoms or reasons for making an appointment. 

Assuming you don’t need any further medical testing, the team at VirtuaReal Health then strategizes your treatment. They can prescribe medications or recommend herbal supplements. They can also offer guidance on how you recover swiftly. If you need additional care or testing, they can refer you to the appropriate specialist. 

Unlike other medical practice models, urgent care is meant to be quick and accessible right away. Many medical conditions can’t wait for days or weeks to be treated, so making an appointment with a provider might not be your best option. 

The team at VirtuaReal Health makes urgent care telehealth visits available for unpredictable medical happenings. 

When should I choose urgent care?

Many people mistakenly think that urgent care and emergency care are synonymous, but the two have key differences. 

You should forgo an urgent care visit with VirtuaReal Health and go to the emergency room instead when you’re bleeding heavily, have a suspected head injury, or experience any life-threatening events like a heart attack. 

More minor issues that aren’t life-threatening benefit from going to urgent care instead. Emergency rooms are often full of people and have long wait times for injuries and illnesses that aren’t life-threatening. 

If you begin an urgent care visit with the VirtuaReal Health team and your medical concern is particularly severe, they redirect you to emergency care. 

Which medical issues can urgent care address?

You can schedule a virtual urgent care visit with the team at VirtuaReal Health for a multitude of injuries, illnesses, and new or worsening symptoms. 

Even if you’re not sure what’s going on with your health, but you just don’t feel how you normally do, an urgent care visit can give you answers and lead you to any care you need.
