Primary emergency care is available 24 hours a day every day of the year, for this reason, it is a great option for patients who have non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries who cannot get to their primary care doctor’s office.  For those patients who are suffering from a life-threatening condition or injury, it should be the only option, as urgent care clinics are not equipped to handle these situations.
