When it comes to STD testing Scottsdale urgent care centers might be a more appropriate place to visit than the emergency room. Urgent care centers treat conditions like sprains, fractures, respiratory illnesses, food poisoning, lacerations and concussions. On average, a child catches between six and ten colds each year. They can be an alternative for the 48 percent of patients who go to the ER because their doctor’s office is closed. Urgent care started in the United States, but it has grown as a model for the world as well and some of them have point of care prescription dispensing services.

For STD testing Scottsdale medical centers have a number of options available. The walk in clinic Scottsdale provides can be useful for people who need immediate service. The same is true for Phoenix urgent care center and Paradise Valley medical centers.

There are thousands of urgent care centers in the United States. Most of these centers that provide services like the STD testing Scottsdale residents benefit from stand in free standing buildings. They are certified by the American Association of Urgent Care Providers and, therefore, reasonably reliable. For this reason, and because they are significantly cheaper than an ER visit, they will probably continue to grow in popularity in the future.
