Urgent care centers treat aggravating cuts, bruises, aches and pains, and emergency rooms treat traumatic, life threatening, injury and illness. It’s that simple. If you need stitches or have a rash, if your child suffered a sprain or you have a sore throat, an urgent care center can take care of you. However, if you are suffering severe chest pain, pregnancy related problems or are losing consciousness, you need to rush to your nearest emergency room.
AG Urgent Care Centers treat illnesses and injury that can’t wait until the next day. If you cut yourself in the kitchen, you don’t want to wait for stitches! If you child sprains her arm at soccer practice you want to make sure it isn’t broken. You don’t want to wait for a clinician’s appointment at the end of the week. That’s what our urgent care centers are for – to make sure that minor illnesses and injuries are diagnosed and treated without long waits.
However, if you are in a car accident, suffer a heart attack or go into early labor, you must go to the emergency room. The ER is designed to treat traumatic injury and serious conditions that require a high level of emergency care including multiple types of diagnostic imaging such as CT scans and MRIs and lab tests.
Urgent care centers are designed to avoid long wait times. Because the conditions we treat don’t require extensive imaging and we don’t care for critically ill patients who arrive by ambulance, we can treat you when you arrive.

AG Urgent Care offers a licensed nutritionist and dietician services in Brooklyn to help you learn how to navigate daily life while eating well to meet your goals.
Weight management – does anything carry more dread? Most of us need to lose weight at some point in our lives, and we avoid it because it is so difficult. Let’s face it, it’s a struggle to lose weight. It’s the last thing we want to do even though it may mean better health and a longer life. If you have tried everything from the grapefruit diet to daily jogging and still can’t get to a healthy weight, come talk to us. Our licensed nutritionist and dietician understands life and its challenges (and that even ice cream can be managed!).
Together with Our Licensed nutritionist you will candidly discuss your personal health goals and daily challenges. You will talk about the special occasions and holidays that can make it difficult to stick to an eating plan. And, in private conversations with your nutritional coach, you will be able to honestly discuss poor eating habits, indulgences and even your sweet tooth.
Then your nutritional coach will develop a personal weight management plan to guide you through each day. A spreadsheet will detail foods and eating times that fit your lifestyle and you will have materials to take home to support your efforts.
