If you have an injury or a medical condition that requires medical attention but isn’t life-threatening, it is better to visit urgent care than ER. Urgent care offers shorter wait times and costs much less than hospital emergency rooms. However, visit an ER or call for an ambulance immediately if you’re faced with a life-threatening situation.

Appointments aren't necessary. You can walk into our urgent care clinic in Chicago, IL, to have a healthcare caregiver examine you.

Typically, we have minimal wait times to attend and treat a patient at Metro Urgent Care. However, the exact time would depend on the number of patients at the clinic, the type of illness or injury you have, and the kind of tests and treatment you require. For instance, if you require an x-ray or other diagnostic tests, the entire process of being attended to and getting the tests, diagnosis, screenings, etc., may take longer than someone who needs a rash assessed.
