10 Most Common Reasons for Urgent Care Center Visits

Urgent care centers (or walk-in medical clinics) treat all non-life-threatening, non-chronic health conditions for patients 3 months and older. Each year, over 120 million U.S. patients seek medical care at an urgent care center, and these numbers continue to climb as urgent care adoption increases.

For life-threatening situations, skip the urgent care and go straight to the nearest emergency room (ER). All chronic health conditions should be treated by a primary care physician.

10 most common reasons patients visit an urgent care center for treatment:

  • Cold & Flu
  • Sprains, Strains & Fractures
  • Sore Throat
  • Lab Tests & Diagnostic Testing (including X-Rays)
  • Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
  • Covid-19 Testing
  • Gastrointestinal Upset
  • Ear Infection
  • Cuts, Scrapes & Burns
  • Skin Irritations

If you need convenient, on-demand healthcare in the Metroplex, visit the nearest Integra Urgent Care center in Las Colinas (Irving), Grand Prairie, or Weatherford.
