If you have a cut or wound that isn’t responding to home care we can help here at Brooklyn Urgent Care. The first indication that you need to go to urgent care in Brooklyn is that the laceration is more than a quarter of an inch deep. After you have covered the cut or wound with a bandage, if the bleeding doesn’t stop within 10 minutes you may need stitches. Finally, if the cut is on the face, such as near the eyes or mouth, you want to get medical care. Also if your laceration is causing you pain, numbness, or immobility come to our Brooklyn medical facility. We will be able to treat your cut successfully while saving you money and time otherwise spent at the ER or waiting for a doctor’s appointment.
