Urgent Care

Urgent Care

Treatment of non-life-threatening conditions that cannot wait days for an appointment.

Should you go to Your PCP or Urgent Care?

When you’re injured or sick, deciding where to seek care may be confusing.  Should you call your primary care physician, or should you drive to an urgent care center?  Urgent care centers promise same-day appointments, but you cannot make an appointment and must wait in a busy waiting room, often for hours.  

How We Can Help

We provide urgent care at Cold Hollow Family Practice, Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  If you have an illness or injury that doesn’t seem to be life-threatening, and you want to be seen the same day, tell our helpful schedulers, and they will find you a time. 

Call us for the following kinds of symptoms and conditions:

  • Fever without a rash
  • Non-life-threatening allergic reactions
  • Ear pain
  • Painful urination
  • Persistent diarrhea
  • Sore throat
  • Vomiting
  • Cuts that may need stiches
  • Cough, cold, or flu symptoms

As our patient, we already know your medical history and the conditions you have had in the past. Cold Hollow Family Practice is your medical home for prevention, diagnosis, and chronic condition management. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to a specialist we know and trust.

Keep in mind, if you are experiencing extreme pain or anything life-threatening, you should call 9-1-1 or go straight to an emergency room.

When should you go to the emergency room?

An emergency room (ER) is part of a hospital designated for treating patients who are experiencing the most dangerous types of emergencies or trauma.
