Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Primary Care of Venice provides efficient and immediate medical care for acute health issues on the same day or as soon as possible. Urgent care addresses health problems that require prompt attention but are not critical, life-threatening, limb-threatening, or severe enough for an emergency room visit.

Why would I need urgent care?

There are several reasons for an urgent care visit, but they are primarily various illnesses that aren’t serious enough to merit an ER trip. Primary Care of Venice addresses many conditions through urgent care visits, including sprained ankles, common colds, mono, sinus infections, and strep throat.

Common cold

A viral infection affecting the upper respiratory tract, the common cold brings symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, coughing, a low-grade fever, and a sore throat.

Urinary tract infections

Primary Care of Venice handles urinary tract infections, which can cause a burning sensation during urination and a frequent urge to urinate.

Sprained ankle

Most ankle sprains involve injuries to the ligaments on the outside of the ankle, occurring when the ankle twists or turns in a way that stretches or tears ligaments.

Strep throat

A bacterial infection, strep throat manifests with symptoms such as fever, rash, headache, and a scratchy, sore throat.

What’s the difference between an emergency room and an urgent care?

Emergency rooms are for critical and life-threatening conditions like shortness of breath or chest pain.
