What is acute urgent care?

Acute urgent care refers to getting same-day medical attention for illnesses and health problems that need fast treatment. No matter what acute problem you face, the goal of urgent acute care is to quickly diagnose the problem and help your body heal quickly.

When should I seek acute urgent care?

Our experienced providers at Aspen Integrative Medical Center offer comprehensive care for urgent problems faced by children, teens, and adults.

Though they take care of the full range of illnesses and minor injuries, Aspen Integrative Medical Center often treats:

    • Seasonal flu
    • Sore throat
    • Common colds
    • COVID-19
    • Sinus infections
    • Skin rashes
    • Earaches 
    • Severe headaches
    • Stomach aches
    • Abdominal pain
    • Vomiting or diarrhea
    • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
    • Cuts and abrasions

Many patients need urgent care when they have a flare up of chronic diseases like asthma, irritable bowel disease, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Does acute urgent care treat emergencies?

No, our providers at Aspen Integrative Medical Center take care of minor illnesses, so you should go to your local emergency room for severe injuries and life-threatening conditions. You should go to the emergency room for:

    • Seizures
    • Heavy bleeding
    • Serious burns
    • Traumatic brain injury
    • Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis)
    • Compound fractures (broken bone with open wound)
    • Known or suspected poisoning
    • Loss of consciousness
    • Heart attack – the symptoms of a heart attack include chest pain or pressure, difficulty breathing, dizziness, and pain in your jaw, shoulder, or arm. 
    • Stroke – weakness in one arm, drooping on one side of your face, and difficulty speaking or understanding others are signs of a stroke.

During a medical emergency, you should always call 911. The medical technicians begin immediate life-saving treatment on the way to the hospital.
