How is a Walk in Emergency Clinic Different from an Emergency Room?
A walk in emergency clinic provides medical care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. An emergency room (ER), on the other hand, treats major, life-threatening medical issues as well as non-life-threatening conditions. While you could visit an ER to receive treatment for a minor emergency, such as a laceration or a fever, you may find that a walk in clinic like TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track can provide more efficient medical care.
At TGH Urgent Care Center, you will not only experience a shorter wait time, on average, than you would at a major emergency medical center, but you will also likely receive more personalized care. From our hours of operation to our offices’ soothing, comfortable environments, we have designed our entire practice around our patients’ needs. That is exactly why we offer a variety of in-house diagnostic tests and procedures, such as lab draws, X-rays, EKGs, urinalysis, and glucose tests, among many others. In many cases, this prevents our patients from making a trip to an off-site laboratory or diagnostic imaging center, allowing them to receive more expedient care.
You can also hasten treatment for flu, strep throat, diarrhea, bone fractures, and other minor medical conditions by utilizing our Fast Pass system that allows you to sign in online. Click here to eliminate wait time when you visit our South Tampa, Westchase, or Carrollwood office.
