Urgent Care Vs Emergency Room

No one ever plans on having a sudden illness, injury or emergency situation. Often times, these happen after-hours when your doctor is not available. Choosing the right facility for the right care can be critical to one’s health. That is why when a medical emergency happens, it is important for you to know which type of facility will provide you with the best medical care.
