Should I Go to a Walk in Medical Clinic or an Emergency Room? Information for Families in Mission Viejo, CA

Walk in Medical Clinic Mission Viejo CAVisiting a walk in medical clinic is a convenient and easy way to receive prompt care. That’s because walk in clinics in Mission Viejo, California, typically have shorter wait times and lower costs than emergency rooms. With this said, there are certain instances where patients should visit an emergency room instead of an urgent care center. To help you determine where you should go when illness or injury strikes, here is a brief overview of what walk in centers and emergency rooms can treat.

  • Ear infections and/or pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Digestive problems

  • Sprain or strains
  • Skin rashes
  • Minor burns
  • Lacerations

In the event of a life-threatening medical condition, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room. Symptoms that may indicate a life-threatening emergency include:

  • Chest pain
  • Sudden change in vision
  • Strange or confused behavior
