A lot of people know that they should have a regular doctor, but some may have the misconception that their Primary Care Provider (PCP) is only there for them when they need an annual physical or a medication refill. At North Star Clinic, our goal is to be comprehensive - and that includes providing not only routine and preventative services, but also care for acute injuries and illnesses.
Here are a few examples of some of the common conditions that we treat on an urgent care basis:
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Cuts or lacerations
- Minor burns
- Insect bites
- Sprains and strains
- Back pain
- Eye irritation and foreign bodies
- Sinus infection
Unless you're having a medical emergency, save yourself a trip to the urgent care center and give North Star Clinic a call first.
