Urgent care Fresno CA
When dealing with an injury or on-set of illness, responding to them in a timely manner is very important.
An illness such as an upper respiratory infection for example (which many people suffer through needlessly) can, if not treated properly and quickly, lead to serious pneumonia and other illnesses.
Likewise, a serious laceration when not treated professionally can become infected and turn bad rapidly.
Having one of our highly skilled and friendly doctors conduct an examination and run a few tests can go a long way toward not only getting you better quickly, but possibly avoid something else that may be worse.
A list of the conditions we treat include the following:
Sports Induced Injury
Minor Bone Breaks
Neck Injuries and Pain
Migraines and Headaches
Flu and Cold
Minor Stomach Problems
Minor Eye Irritation
Severe nose bleed
Urinary Track Issues
Female Health Issues
Poison Ivy/Poison Oak
Work Related Physicals

A Total Health Clinic in Fresno CA
Whether you choose us or another provider for your urgent care needs, Premium Urgent Care wants to help you to have the best care possible: staying healthy in the first place!
Here are a few things you can do to keep you and your family healthy:
Stay Hydrated– Americans in our fast paced lifestyles rarely drink enough water. Staying hydrated, especially during the summer months will keep your body healthy and avoid serious health risks. Do not wait until it is too late, if you are experiencing blurred vision, rapid heart rate or extreme mouth dryness go to a cool place and drink some water. Visit your local urgent care hospital for treatment.
Stay Active– It is a known fact that exercise helps people stay healthy by reducing risk of some diseases and helping to lose weight. With today’s conveniences and busy schedules it can be difficult to find the time to exercise. Making the daily choice to exercise and stay active improves your health which can reduce doctor and hospital visits. The scientific principle that an object in motion tends to stay in motion is true with people as much as anything else!
Get Your Flu Shot– Getting your flu shot as early as September or October can go a long way towards avoiding this serious illness. Children under the age of 10, seniors and people with compromised immune systems are at a particularly high risk for influenza, and should schedule an annual, repeating Flu vaccination with their primary care physician. We offer Flu vaccinations as one of the many services we provide here at Premium Urgent Care.
Drink Coffee– Bet you weren’t expecting this one! The effects of coffee on human physiology are profound. Caffeine (in moderate doses) can stimulate your nervous system and studies have shown that it may lower you risk of Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, chronic headaches, emotional problems and more. It also contains magnesium, which promotes good blood sugar health (good for diabetics) and is naturally calorie free as long as you avoid cream, sugar and other calorie coffee additives like flavored syrups.
Get Better Sleep– Are you a hot sleeper? Many people don’t get enough sleep in our fast paced world, and the sleep they do get isn’t quality rest. One of the reasons for this is body temperature. When your body temperature is too high while you sleep your body has trouble regulating cortisol, melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals prevent aging, help with your mood and cravings and your overall health. Taking measures to be cooler at night will get you sleeping better than ever!

A Local Urgent Care Company with a Difference
Premium Urgent Care is a local company with a passion for people. Part of that passion is educating people on making good choices.
Did you know urgent facilities are much more affordable on average than typical emergency room visits? One of the reasons for that is simple: higher overhead. Paying utilities, upkeep of high tech equipment, labor costs for a staff of hundreds if not thousands of people and the costs of the treatments themselves add up.
With a much smaller staff, facility and other factors an urgent care facility like ours can charge significantly less for treating many of the same issues. Consequently, co-pays and insurance claims tend to be a great deal less than those for hospital service, making urgent care more affordable for you.
Additionally, many people have come to prefer urgent care facilities over hospital emergency rooms for treatment.
Beyond being a more affordable option, the care received at an urgent care facility is typically a more personal experience according to many of our patients. With the mention once more of a massive staff that are constantly in a hurry, most hospitals simply don’t have the time to focus too much on creating an atmosphere of care and a personal touch when it comes to treatment.
With a smaller staff and workload, our nurses and physicians take time to listen to and answer questions. This gives us an advantage in having the opportunity and privilege to really get to know our patients and make their experience in a stressful situation as pleasant as possible.
It is our hope that when you leave one of our facilities that you will feel like we really took the time and effort to treat you not just as a patient number in a waiting room or a chart on the outside of an emergency room unit. Our hope is that after being treated by the professional, personable and friendly staff at Premium Urgent Care you will feel entirely satisfied by your experience with us and be on the road to a speedy recovery.
