What is urgent care?
Urgent care is the type of service that is between a regular, pre-scheduled doctor’s appointment, and emergency care. Calling the team at Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, ahead of your visit to explain what your condition is can be helpful for the team to provide you with the treatment you need. However, you don’t need an appointment for urgent care.
While there are certain conditions that allow you to make a previous phone call, situations such as having a child with a sore throat full of white and yellow patches, or sustaining a sports injury, are reason enough to make your way to Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, to receive the care you or your family needs. Our offices are open seven days a week to ensure the best medical care when you need it.

What’s the difference between urgent care and emergency care?
While the emergency room covers medical emergencies that put your life at risk, urgent care is aimed at less dangerous injuries and illnesses. It is important to note that you should go to the emergency room if you have any of the following conditions:
- Chest pain
- Trouble breathing
- Severe burns
- Head or eye injuries
- Broken bones
- Slurred speech
- Changes in mental state
- Facial lacerations or severe cuts
In an emergency room, patients are treated depending on the urgency of their condition, so going to the emergency room with a non-life threatening condition could result in waiting for a long time to be seen by a healthcare provider.
In addition to this, even if you have health insurance, the fees for emergency room services are significantly higher.
At Cool Springs Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, PLLC, we are here for you and your family if you have urgent medical needs. Call our practice or book an appointment online today.
