Urgent Care vs. The Emergency Room. A quick guide to choosing.
There is some overlap in the things urgent care facilities and emergency rooms can treat. Gray Urgent Care provides services you would typically expect at a doctor’s office, with the addition and convenience of x-ray machines and some lab testing. But if the situation is life-threatening or involves trauma, a trip to the emergency room—after a call to 911—is warranted. Accordingly, it will be more expensive, but it could be the difference between life and death.
Here are the basics you need to know to decide which is right for the situation at hand.
