Urgent and Primary Care in Atlanta, GA
To properly take care of your health, it’s important to seek out primary and immediate care when health care issues arise. Here at Perimeter Clinic, we strive to be your go-to facility for both of these services. No matter your reason for visiting our clinic, we will provide high-quality care in a timely manner.
But do you know when you should seek walk-in primary care vs. urgent care?
It’s easy to get the two confused, but we want our patients to be informed about the differences. This way, you can come into our clinic at the right time, and we can provide the most focused care possible.
When to Walk-In Seeking Urgent Care
When you get sick or injured, it’s important to seek diagnosis and treatment quickly. Our physicians at Perimeter Clinic are proud to serve your urgent care needs. So, what exactly is walk-in urgent care? Unlike primary and emergency care, these services are meant to address conditions that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening.
You might bring yourself or your child to our urgent care facility for one of the following ailments:
- Bone Fractures
- Insect Bites
- Severe Cuts
- Ear Aches
- Strep Tests
- And more…
If you or your child are in discomfort and require specific medical testing, our physicians can provide these services quickly.
However, we urge our patients to go to a hospital emergency room if you are having a life-threatening emergency such as a heart attack. Do not visit an urgent care clinic for these dangerous medical situations.
When to Seek Walk-In Primary Care
Walk-in primary care facilities offer an excellent healthcare solution for your well-being. When you don’t have time to make an appointment with your doctor, but still want to address your health concerns, our facility is here to work with you. As part of the Piedmont Clinic, we have connections with a variety of area providers and specialists. If you require additional care or an appointment with a specialist, we are happy to refer you.
When you visit our clinic for primary care, we can address both your immediate, ongoing and preventative medical needs. Our team can then run the tests and diagnostics you require to find a solution.
We recommend that you come in for primary care for the following ailments:
- Routine Physicals
- STD Testing
- Non-Serious Ailments
- Acute Pain
- Minor Sprains and Fractures
- And more…
Whether you are coming in for your annual physical, need routine tests, or have a cold that just won’t go away, we are here to provide the care you require. Our physicians will take the time to listen and recommend a treatment plan that fits your needs. And for those seeking preventative care, we are happy to discuss and form a plan around your overall health and wellness.
For both urgent and primary care needs, our staff at Perimeter Clinic look forward to helping you on your path to a healthy, vibrant life.
