When faced with a minor sprain that requires bandaging, or a burn from standing too close to the kitchen stove, or if you’re experiencing flu symptoms, you usually think to visit the emergency room.

If you’re in need of immediate medical attention and care, you probably don’t want to be stuck waiting for hours in a crowded waiting room, and you definitely want to avoid the expensive hospital bill.

Most emergency room visits that are non-life threatening injuries or illnesses can be treated with the care of a physician at an urgent care center like AFC Urgent Care Gloucester Township.

This chart can help you decide if you need urgent care or emergency room care.
