at urgent care centers include: sprains and strains, fractures, upper respiratory illnesses, gastrointestinal conditions such as food poisoning, lacerations, and concussions. One of the drivers for the growth of the urgent-care industry is the increasing case load of primary care physicians, which leads to difficulty scheduling appointments, longer wait times and decreased time spent with each patient. Almost two-thirds of centers employ a mix of physicians, nurse practitioners, or physician assistants, and 65% of centers have at least one physician on-site at all times. Many people choose urgent care centers for the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries because the wait time and the cost, are less than at ERs or at their primary care physician's office.
