The Difference with America’s ER Urgent Care Center
Many urgent care facilities are not staffed by doctors, but by nurse practitioners or physician assistants. If you happen to be seen by a doctor, you have no way of knowing if that physician is trained to properly evaluate, diagnose and treat your condition. In contrast, America’s ER staffs our Urgent Care Center with the same doctors and registered nurses who work in our emergency room, so your care is always managed by experienced ER physicians.
The clinical capabilities of most urgent care centers are limited and vary widely. While many urgent care centers may have plain film x-ray and basic laboratory services, most are not equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging (such as CT and Ultrasound) or a full-service laboratory to help ensure proper diagnoses. In contrast, AER’s Urgent Care Center utilizes the same advanced diagnostic equipment and comprehensive 24-hour laboratory as our emergency room, so we are fully equipped to treat a wide spectrum of conditions that are simply beyond the capability of most urgent care centers.
Unlike other urgent care clinics which have limited hours of operation and are often closed on weekends and holidays, AER’s Urgent Care Center—like our emergency room—is always open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We’re ready to offer convenient, uncompromised care for you and your family whenever you need it.
