Urgent Care Clinic in Maryland

When you’re looking for “an urgent care clinic near me,” it can be hard to know where to take your child, or yourself, for that matter, when you’re beset by an illness or condition that’s affecting you more than the run-of-the-mill headache. For example, is the emergency room appropriate for a bruise on her elbow that’s turned deep purple after a day? Where should you go for a persistent earache? Such decisions are made much more easily for Maryland residents with the establishment of Fast Track Urgent Care, which is an urgent care facility that functions as a capable bridge between a hospital emergency room and a drugstore first aid kit. You don’t have to go through the scheduling nightmare of seeing your primary physician, nor the last and costly resort of going to the emergency room.

What Kinds of Illness Can Fast Track Urgent Care Help With?

  • Wound infections – if you or your child has a cut or bruise that seems it be getting worse over time (a few days, or even just one day), then there’s no need for an emergency room – the doctors at Fast Track Urgent Care can apprise you of the situation and remedy the problem.
  • Make sure to come into our facilities if you develop a headache or migraine as a result of a wound – even if you don’t observe infection; in fact, you can come on in for any cut or bruise at all that gives you pause.
  • Ear infections – especially in younger children, can be a problem best met early. If you observe any of the tell-tale signs, such as fluid discharge, inattentiveness, or nausea, then bring the kid into one of our two walk-in offices.

This is just a short list of some of the more common problems we see in patients needing non-emergency room attention. There are many more ailments that our qualified staff is capable of resolving; come and see us even if you have chronic pain, such as with your back or other body parts.

If you reside in Kensington or Silver Spring, there’s a Fast Track Urgent Care facility mere minutes away from you. For your convenience, we have qualified medical doctors and healthcare professionals available during the weekend and evening hours.

If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, you should call 911 immediately and/or go to an emergency room.

Come to Fast Track Urgent Care when you need treatment for:

  • Animal bites – Don’t risk infection; get animal bites checked out and treated.
  • Back pain – Our doctors can examine you and let you know if your back pain is a temporary imposition or a more serious condition.
  • Bumps, cuts, and bruises – Again, don’t risk infection. If a cut is deep and/or won’t stop bleeding, get it checked out.
  • Ear or sinus pain – Our doctors and clinicians can help make you more comfortable and diagnose your problem.
  • Eye swelling or pain – Any eye problem should be examined before it worsens.
  • Infections – If you suspect infection, get it checked out.
