About Urgent Care

Same Day/Next Day (SDND) Urgent Care is a convenient way to access timely medical advice and treatment if your condition requires prompt attention. Patients can be evaluated and treated timely, and still pay only their copay (compared to the cost of an outpatient urgent care). Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine offers SDND urgent care services at its locations in Derry, Windham, and Bedford, New Hampshire, where you can benefit from an expert diagnosis and fast results. To find out more about using urgent care, call the office nearest you today or walk into the clinic. Online booking is also an option, as is telehealth.

What's the difference between urgent care and a medical emergency?

Urgent care services at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine offer expert evaluation and treatment for illnesses and injuries requiring prompt attention. Medical emergencies are potentially life-threatening situations where you need to go to the hospital emergency room.

You should seek emergency medical attention for conditions such as:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sudden loss of physical or mental function
  • Compound fractures (where the bone is visible)
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Seizures
  • Bleeding knife wounds
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Moderate-to-severe burns
  • Serious head and neck injuries
  • Severe pain in your chest or abdomen
  • Suicidal impulses

Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine's offices are the best place to go for problems that require prompt attention but aren't life-threatening.

Why should I use Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine for an Urgent Care visit?

Attending Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine for urgent care is much more convenient than going to the emergency room or freestanding urgent care clinic. It's also less stressful, as you are in familiar surroundings with staff that you know.

Many primary care providers don't offer urgent care services, which means you have to visit an unfamiliar location or use costly hospital services. At Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine, you benefit from having comprehensive primary care providers and urgent care facilities at one site.
