Your primary care provider may be unavailable, and an emergency room visit can take hours. At Jovive Health, we offer a faster way to get help—our urgent care clinic in Cameron Park, California, accepts walk-in visits and same-day appointments for patients of all ages, including children.

Comprehensive Urgent Care Treatment

Are you looking for a doctor for a cold, the flu, or another type of upper respiratory infection? Or, have you sustained a sprain, a break, or a muscle strain? Whatever the case may be, you can get the treatment you need at Jovive Health’s Cameron Park urgent care center. Our experienced providers offer urgent care for a wide range of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, including:

When to Seek Urgent Care Treatment

If you are injured or feeling under the weather, you may be unsure where to turn for treatment. Should you opt for urgent care, emergency care, or primary care?

Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room

When you are deciding which type of provider to visit, the first thing you will need to consider is the severity of your illness or injury. If your condition is potentially life- or limb-threatening, then you should call 911 or get to a nearby hospital as soon as possible. Emergency rooms (ERs) are typically open 24/7 and are equipped to handle medical emergencies such as:

  • Anaphylaxis
  • Head injuries
  • Heart attacks
  • Large wounds
  • Limb amputations (partial and total)
  • Overdoses
  • Poisonings
  • Seizures
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal injuries
  • Strokes

If your condition is not life- or limb-threatening, you will want to consider visiting either your primary care provider or a nearby urgent care center like Jovive Urgent Care instead. Because ERs need to prioritize treating patients with serious illnesses and injuries, they tend to have longer wait times for individuals with milder conditions. Plus, ERs generally charge higher fees than primary care practices and urgent care clinics.

Urgent Care vs. Primary Care

Once you have determined that your condition is not life- or limb-threatening, the next question will be whether to choose urgent care or primary care. This will largely depend on availability. Many primary care providers have limited office hours, while urgent care centers are more likely to be open in the early morning and evening and on weekends and holidays (Jovive Health’s Cameron Park clinic, for instance, is open seven days a week with extended hours). And while many patients cannot schedule appointments with their primary care physicians until weeks or months into the future, many urgent care clinics (including Jovive Health) offer walk-in availability.

You will also need to consider the type of illness or injury that you are experiencing. Urgent care centers are often an excellent option for acute (suddenly occurring) conditions. But because primary care providers tend to have long-standing relationships with their patients, and thus in-depth knowledge about their medical histories and medication regimens, they are often better suited to administer annual physical examinations and treat chronic (ongoing) conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Luckily, if you are in the Cameron Park area, you can rely on Jovive Health for urgent care, and we can also fill gaps for many primary care services if your regular doctor is not available.
