When should you go to urgent care for stitches?

You may need to go to urgent care for stitches or other urgent care services if your wound:
1. Continues to bleed after 15 minutes of direct pressure
2. Is deeper than one-quarter inch, gaping open,
3. Is deep enough that fat, muscle, or bone are visible
4. Has a cut made by a rusty metal object, such as a nail
5. Is situated over a joint and the edges of the wound separates during movement
6. Is located on your face or a hand or finger

FAQ

Can urgent care do stitches?

This depends on how serious the cut is and where the cut is located. Urgent care clinics can provide stitches for shallow cuts that have no torn edges, not spurting bright red blood, and not exposing a joint, vein, or muscle. If the cut has those characteristics, is bleeding profusely even when pressure is applied, and is located on the face or scalp, then it is best to go to the ER.

What happens if I don’t get stitches for a cut?

If you don’t get stitches for a cut, it may take longer for the wound to close and heal. Not only is that inconvenient and bothersome, there is also a risk of infection.

Do I need stitches if it stops bleeding?

If your wound stops bleeding when you add gauze bandages, then you won’t need stitches. But if it keeps bleeding through the bandages, even with direct pressure, then you might need to get stitches.

How soon should wounds get stitched?

A wound that needs stitches should get them within six to eight hours after the injury. 

Are stitches supposed to hurt after?

It is normal for stitches to hurt. The pain should decrease as the wound heals. For deeper tissues, any pain and soreness may last another week or more.

What is the difference between emergency and urgent care?

The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.

Are urgent care centers open after hours?

Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.

Should I make an appointment for Urgent Care?

Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through Via phone or online.

Can I pay for my urgent care stitches without insurance?

If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.

The wait wasn't too long, the staff were very friendly and i walked out feeling like i got the answers i was looking for. They could've uncharged me for the other reasons i went to get checked, but my doctor referred me to more affordable clinics. Overall a great experience.

i didn't even go in this place yet and i was amazed at the telephone service i received i spoke with the sweetest nurse who went above and beyond to get me the information i needed she was so polite and had so much patience due the millions of crazy questions i asked , i believe her name was Stephanie she than transferred me to the doctor where i ask a few more crazy questions and guess what i got the help i needed over the phone so i decided to give the place a visit that same day and i will say i walked in and i was completely at ease the care i got was impeccable and so outstanding i called my wife to come and be seen the same day as well they ROCK !!!

I went to this urgent care at 3:40pm. When I entered the urgent care it was very spacious and clean. I checked in and gave all the necessary information, I was the only one in the office. Within minutes I was called to see the doctor. I was out of the office by 4:10pm. This will be my go to place when my doctors office is closed.
