Affordable and Fast Urgent Care in Gallatin
If you need urgent care during normal business hours, your primary care physician is the best place to start when you’re sick or hurt. If RightCare Family Practice is your primary care provider, then you’re already in the right place. Your PCP will know your health history, including any underlying conditions you may have. When you visit your doctor for an illness or injury, they can make informed choices about your treatment and necessary tests. And many primary care doctors have evening and weekend hours to accommodate busy schedules.
But what if you get sick or injured when your doctor’s office is closed?
If your condition isn’t life-threatening but needs to be taken care of right away, then urgent care may be the right choice for you.
Urgent care centers are usually open after normal doctor’s office business hours, including evenings and weekends. Many offer on-site diagnostic tests. And, in most situations, you’ll find that you save time and money by going to urgent care instead of an emergency room. At RightCare Family Practice the convenience of our hours and the expansive knowledge of our staff have helped us develop into a leading clinic and urgenct care facility for residents and visitors to Gallatin and Hendersonville, TN. Our combined team of Nurse Practitioners and experienced Physicians allows us to see patients with a tremendous variety of ailments while helping them avoid the chaos and commonly long waits found in an Emergency Room.
Emergency rooms are the best place for treating severe and life-threatening conditions because they’re open 24 hours, seven days a week. They have the widest range of services for emergency after-hours care, including diagnostic tests and access to specialists. That specialized care also makes it the most expensive type of care. And, depending on how critical your ailment is, you may have to wait a long time to get treated.
The important thing is to use your best judgment when choosing where to get care.
