URGENT CARE 101
Your doctor isn't always accessible when injury or illness strikes. Urgent care offers extended and weekend hours. Cure Urgent Care works in partnership with your primary care doctor to help bridge the gap when he or she isn't available and when an issue isn't life threatening or urgent enough to require a trip to the ER.
Cure treats a wide range of illnesses, including colds and flu, ear and eye infections, eye injuries, gastrointestinal issues and simple fractures. For a full overview of our capabilities, visit our Services page.2) When should I go to the ER?
For any issue that is life threatening, call 911 or head to the emergency room. Do not attempt to drive if you have chest pain, dizziness or confusion, a sudden severe headache, have fainted, had a seizure, heavy bleeding or have sustained a head injury.3) Can you do tests and x-rays?
