In brief: Clarify please

If you have a new health problem, urgent care is likely appropriate to help you for that problem (as long as it's not life threatening / emergent).
If you need ongoing health care, an urgent care may be able to recommend physicians, but an urgent care generally does not provide regular follow-up. It's a good idea to have a primary care doc - your insurance co. Or local medical society may recomm.
