Benefits of visiting an urgent care clinic

You need a walk-in clinic you can trust

An urgent care clinic is a great resource whenever you are sick.Sometimes, you have a medical problem that isn’t a full emergency and yet you need it treated sooner than you can see your primary care doctor. These are urgent medical needs and are best treated at a walk-in urgent care clinic.

An emergency situation is one in which a person’s life is threatened or the injury may cause future impairment. Urgent care clinics treat medical issues requiring care within 24 hours that are not life-threatening emergencies.

Symptoms urgent care clinics treat

At Velocity Care Urgent Treatment Center, our medical team has extensive training to care for a variety of symptoms. Urgent care clinics treat a range of medical issues from colds, earaches and urinary tract infections to broken bones, cuts and wounds. They can provide X-rays, EKGs and even stitches. There are benefits to visiting an urgent care clinic over an emergency room.

Why visit an urgent care clinic?

  1. Care. Our walk-in clinics in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Louisiana – Bossier City, Natchitoches and Shreveport – employ doctors with professional training in an emergency room setting.
  2. Convenience. We’re open seven days a week with extended evening hours to best serve your needs at any time.
  3. Cost. We’re more affordable than a visit to the ER. Many insurance companies charge more for an ER visit copay versus a visit to an urgent care facility.
  4. Close. We’re your neighborhood urgent care clinic, locally owned and operated by our doctors. Our families live in the area and are just like you. We know what it’s like to have to wait for care in the ER. That’s why we strive to provide outstanding walk-in clinics to relieve your stress and give your family the best health care options.

Our goal is to bring our more than 30 years of experience into a setting where patients can have their non-emergency medical needs taken care of quickly in a comfortable environment and receive the same care we would give our own families.

You and your family’s health are important. The benefits of visiting an urgent care clinic instead of the ER are clear. At Velocity Care Urgent Treatment Centers, we make sure you get the best care, save money and feel better sooner – without the ER wait.
