When should you go to the ER for a cold?
Adults should go to the ER if their cold comes with a sustained fever of over 102 degrees, difficulty breathing, severe pain in the chest or stomach, vertigo, and lightheadedness.
Children should be brought to the ER if their cold is accompanied by earache, a fever over 102 degrees, skin rash, labored breathing, and severe cough.
Can you go to the doctor for a cold?
Most colds last seven to 10 days. If it lasts longer than 10 days, you need to consult a doctor as it might be a bacterial infection that will require antibiotics.
How can you tell a cold from COVID?
While both the cold and COVID-19 infection are caused by viruses that cause similar signs and symptoms, there are a few major differences. A cold never comes with diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. It also rarely involves muscle pain, fatigue, and fever.

Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.
Can I go to urgent care for non-emergency?

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.
