Urgent Care

What is Urgent Care?

Illness and accidents happen.  When they do, Bream Medical has all your urgent care needs covered!  Bream Medical offers treatments beyond what most urgent cares offer because they want to keep patients out of the Emergency Room!

When should I use Urgent Care?

Urgent Care offers many advantages over a traditional Emergency Room or Primary Care visit.  Here are just a few:

  • Quicker access for minor injuries than traditional Emergency Rooms as we work on arrival times, not triage.
  • In-house services like X-Rays allow for more rapid diagnosis than a traditional Primary Care visit.
  • No appointments necessary
