Should I Visit a Walk in Clinic or the ER? Information for Residents of Buena Park, CA

Walk in Clinic Buena Park CAYou’ve sprained your ankle during your morning run. Do you go to the nearest walk in clinic or the hospital emergency room? If you’re unsure of the answer, you are not alone. Many people in Buena Park, California, and beyond aren’t entirely sure about where to receive care when sickness and injury strikes.

As a general rule of thumb, always go to the emergency room if you fear loss of life, limb, or vision, or if you or someone around you is experiencing any of the following problems:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Sudden change in vision
  • Severe, persistent vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • A bone fracture that has pierced the skin
  • Sharp, severe pain in the body
  • A wound with uncontrolled bleeding
  • Sudden confusion and/or difficulty speaking

Going to the hospital or calling 911 is also a good idea if you have been in a motor vehicle accident or near-drowning incident, even if you aren’t experiencing any severe pain or concerning symptoms.

For most other problems, you can probably visit a walk in clinic, which has lower costs and typically shorter wait times than a hospital ER. Marque Urgent Care in Buena Park, CA, is an excellent choice for walk-in medical care. All of our patients are treated by experienced physicians (not advanced practice clinicians), and our center is equipped with key medical technologies like a digital X-ray machine and clinical lab.
