In a perfect world, you would be able to get in to see your primary care doctor any time you had a health concern, injury, or illness.

As we’ve detailed in previous blog posts, it’s important to have a primary care physician because they’re more intimately acquainted with your health history, able to use your complete medical record to provide more comprehensive care.

Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world. Primary care physicians are in high demand around the Washington, D.C. area, with many booked up for months to come. This is why more Americans are turning to their local urgent care centers for help.

“Though the majority of Americans have a primary care doctor, a large number also seek treatment at urgent care centers, statistics show. For many people, the centers have become a bridge between the primary care doctor’s office and the hospital emergency room,” NPR reported in early 2016.
