Your 7-year old son starts throwing up late at night with his skin burning up with a fever, what do you do? What if your partner starts complaining of stomach pain so sharp they can barely stand? What would your next move be? To schedule an appointment with your pediatrician (or family doctor) for the next day? That is a lot of time for your son (or partner) to be in pain. Another option would be to visit an emergency room but since the condition may be deemed non-critical, it may be hours before you are attended to. That is hours of suffering and pain, along with the risk of the condition getting worse.
A better alternative would be to visit an urgent care facility. At one of these facilities, you can make an appointment online and see a doctor within hours. The doctors are highly trained, often with decades of experience handling all sorts of medical emergencies. Furthermore, urgent care clinics are open 24/7 every day of the week, as well as during weekends and on holidays.
