When to Head to Your Nearest Emergency Room

Urgent Care or ER: How to Identify an Emergency

In an emergency, time is of the essence. But when you’re caught off guard, it’s natural to feel shaken and unsure of whether you need emergency care.

Trust your instincts. If you experience severe pain that comes out of nowhere, if you feel a condition is life-threatening, or if you or a loved one suddenly experiences a drastic change of health — play it safe. Call 911 immediately to head to the closest emergency room. This is especially important for a suspected heart attack or stroke. We offer emergency medical treatments for many conditions and injuries, including:

  • Complicated Fractures
  • Deep Wounds
  • Extreme Difficulty Breathing
  • Major Head Injury
  • Poisoning
  • Severe Allergic Reactions
  • Severe Burns
  • Suspected Heart Attack
  • Suspected Stroke
  • Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood

Our expert emergency room team is here to help you when you need it most, so you can start feeling whole again.

What to Expect When You Visit the Carrollwood ER in Tampa, Florida

We know you have lots of questions about what’s happening right now. Count on us to answer each one patiently and thoughtfully. We’ll have a few questions, too — because the more information we have, the more quickly we can help you heal. To start off, our expert ER staff will ask for basic things like your name, birthdate, medical history, and the reason for your visit. We’ll also take your vital signs. Then we’ll decide how to best move forward.

To help minimize your stress and prepare for every possibility, you may want to consider keeping certain information on you at all times. Carrying an information card in your wallet or purse is a great way to be prepared for a sudden trip to the emergency room. Including the name and number of your primary care physician, a list of your medications and drug allergies, and any advance directives (like powers of attorney or health care proxy) can be helpful. Also consider keeping your photo ID and insurance card with you at all times, as we may ask to see these when you visit.

In our 24-hour emergency room, we use a system known as triage to help us determine the order in which patients receive care. This means a patient suffering from a suspected stroke may receive care sooner than someone not in a critical condition. Sometimes, this can mean earlier treatment for a later-arriving patient. But with an average door-to-doctor ER wait time of only 16 minutes, you can rest easy knowing we’ll do our best to treat everyone in a timely manner, and that we’re fully committed to giving you the best emergency medical treatments available.

Serving You in Our Local Urgent Care Centers

When you need care for a serious but non-critical illness or injury, you can visit one of our Tampa Urgent Care Centers. Our highly experienced staff are ready to help you find relief from a range of minor ailments, including:

  • Allergic Reactions and Hives
  • Cold, Flu, and Common Illnesses
  • Cuts That Need Stitches
  • Disease Management
  • Minor Cuts (Onsite Stitches Available)
  • Rashes
  • Sprains, Strains, and Fractures

You deserve convenient, affordable care, which is why we accept most major insurance plans and don’t ask you to schedule an appointment before visiting your local Urgent Care center. And since we’re committed to your health not only now, but in the future, our Urgent Care offers a number of preventative services, including flu shots, X-rays, EKGs, and annual physical exams. We’re helping you be proactive about your health.

Video Visits: Delivering High-Quality Care Wherever You Are

All you need is an internet connection via your smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Through Video Visits, we offer virtual appointments for a number of minor conditions, including:

  • Conjunctivitis/Pink Eye
  • Cough, Colds, Bronchitis, and Flu
  • Lower-Back Pain
  • Seasonal Allergies
  • Sinus and Upper-Respiratory Infections
  • Skin Conditions
  • Urinary Tract Infections
