Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care treats non-emergency health problems that happen outside of regular practice hours — the ones that need immediate care and can’t wait until the next available appointment time.

Dr. Williams and the Gulf Club Medicine medical team have extensive training in treating a broad range of medical conditions.

When should you make an urgent care appointment?

An urgent care appointment covers all medical conditions that would usually need care within the next 24 hours. This includes the treatment of chronic diseases, like high blood pressure and diabetes, and ailments like:

  • Eye irritation
  • Allergies
  • Flu and fever
  • Rashes
  • Infections
  • Severe coughs and colds
  • Diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Accidents, including falls
  • Sprains and muscle tears or strains
  • Minor fractures, like broken toes and fingers
  • Mild respiratory issues, like asthma
  • Deeper cuts that need stitches

If you have significant breathing problems, heavy bleeding, are in severe pain, or you have any other life-threatening illness or injury, like a heart attack or head injury, go to an emergency room or call 911 immediately.

Do I need to make an appointment at an urgent care center?

In traditional urgent care centers, you don't have to make an appointment. You simply turn up. While this is convenient, you’ll have to wait to see a doctor.

The team at Gulf Club Medicine goes a step farther to provide convenient medical care without the wait. The practice offers the Gulf Club Medicine concierge service.

Concierge medicine is on-demand access to medical providers, 24/7. You can make an appointment any time that’s convenient, or in the case of urgent care, necessary, for you — even the same day — and there’s no waiting around.

When you partner with Gulf Club Medicine, you don’t have to attend an appointment or even be in the same country to receive medical care. If you can't make it into the practice, the team speaks with you over the phone and calls in your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

If you’re ready to try a new type of medical care that focuses on the doctor-patient relationship, reach out to Gulf Club Medicine. If you’d like to learn more, call Gulf Club Medicine or book an appointment online.
