How to Prepare for a Visit to Urgent Care

Patient talking to doctor.

Here are some tips on how to prepare for a visit to urgent care:

  1. Bring your insurance card and identification. This will help the staff process your payment.
  2. Bring a list of your medications and allergies. This will help the doctor quickly diagnose your condition.
  3. Bring a copy of your medical history, if you have one. This will help the doctor get a better understanding of your overall health.
  4. Bring a caregiver, if needed. This is especially important if you are young, elderly, or have a disability.
  5. Dress comfortably. You may be asked to change into a gown.
  6. Bring a book, magazine, or something else to keep you occupied. You may have to wait a while to be seen.
  7. Be patient and understanding. The staff at urgent care centers are working hard to see as many patients as possible.

By following these tips, you can make your visit to urgent care as smooth and efficient as possible.
