Many people have heard the term ‘urgent care,’ but might be uncertain about when to seek it versus emergency care. Urgent care is for treating medical conditions that are not emergencies, but still require prompt care while emergency treatment is for life-threatening conditions, such as a heart attack. An example of a condition requiring urgent care is a cut that needs to be stitched closed, but is not bleeding profusely. The Marianna primary care doctors at PanCare Health provide urgent care medical services.
