What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a broad term that covers any type of health concern that requires immediate medical attention. Different than visiting the emergency room, urgent care is not intended for life-threatening situations like a heart attack, a severe bone break, or sudden head trauma. 

At Joseph R Raccuglia, MD, an urgent care visit can save you a costly trip to the emergency room. Dr. Raccuglia understands just how overwhelming health care costs can be for the average family. That’s why he’s committed to providing comprehensive, affordable urgent care services.
