Why X-Ray Imaging Is a Critical Component of Our Urgent Care Services in Carson City, MI
Ouch Urgent Care is committed to making convenient, high-quality nonemergency health care available to our Carson City, Michigan, community. To do that, we not only staff our Carson City walk-in clinic with well-trained and certified medical practitioners, but we also provide them with a wide array of diagnostic tools, including on-site digital X-ray imaging equipment. X-ray imaging plays a critical role in helping medical practitioners detect and identify the source of discomfort for a variety of common illnesses and injuries. Examples include:
- Dislocated joints
- Bone fractures
- Fluid in the lungs
- Foreign objects in the body
Moreover, unlike many other urgent care clinics, we have a board-certified radiology technologist on staff who uses our X-ray imaging capabilities to help our medical team provide patients with accurate diagnoses and effective treatment plans. This means we’re often able to offer our walk-in patients all the services they need to get on the road to recovery without having to visit another provider.
A Better Alternative to the ER for Nonemergency Medical Treatment
In addition to X-ray imaging services, Ouch Urgent Care offers on-site medical testing that can help our practitioners diagnose a variety of non-life-threatening health conditions, including influenza, strep throat, STDs, and many others. We’re open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, which means you can seek treatment at our Carson City clinic during times when traditional doctors’ offices are typically closed. Our wait times are short, and you can use our convenient online check-in service to save your spot in line if you wish. We also offer affordable rates and accept many insurance plans, including Medicaid, making our walk-in clinic a terrific alternative to the emergency room when you need care right away but don’t have a life-threatening illness or injury.
