Urgent Care

Urgent care is the setting where you can address unexpected illness or injury. When these issues arise, you can rely on Victor Njoku, MD, of Medvon Medical Clinic in San Antonio, Texas, for prompt and professional care. Walk-in visits are often available, and you can always call the office for guidance. Online booking is an option for less time-sensitive booking needs.  

Urgent Care Q & A

What are the benefits of urgent care?

When you or a loved one experiences a sudden illness or injury, the situation is stressful enough without having to spend time wondering where to turn for help. That’s why Dr. Njoku made the decision to offer urgent care services to his patients. 

Turning to a health practitioner whom you know and trust, and who is already familiar with your personal and family health histories, can make a difficult situation far easier to manage. 

You won’t waste time getting a new practitioner up-to-speed on your unique health background, and you won’t have to adapt to a new communication style during your visit. 

Not long ago, the only option for people who were injured or ill outside of normal business hours was to rely on hospital emergency rooms. Going to the ER is expensive, and these specialized providers are trained to prioritize the most serious cases. 

That means you can sit for hours (in a crowded waiting area full of sick people) while you wait for your turn. 


What kinds of services are available within urgent care?

Urgent care offers a fast path toward relief for a wide range of common health concerns. Some of the issues that bring people in for urgent care include:


  • Minor lacerations 
  • Strains and sprains
  • Fever 
  • Headaches
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • COVID-19 symptoms
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Allergic reactions

These are just a few of the issues that are commonly treated in an urgent care setting.


How do I know if urgent care is right for me?

It isn’t always easy to know when to seek urgent care. One way to think about it is to consider whether you can comfortably wait to be seen during a normally scheduled office visit. If the answer is no, then urgent care is probably the best fit. 

Sometimes the local emergency room is the best setting to meet your needs. If any of the following apply, seek emergency assistance right away:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Chest pain
  • Severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) 
  • Visibly broken bones
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide

If you’re unsure where to turn for help, call Medvon Medical Clinic for guidance. Walk-in visits for urgent care are available, and you can always call to check the hours. Online booking is a great fit for non-urgent scheduling needs.
