What is urgent care?

Urgent care describes medical services to address unexpected injuries or symptoms that develop suddenly and aren’t life-threatening.

The team provides diagnostic testing and customized treatment plans to address your injury or illness without delays. They also provide comprehensive primary care services to manage your overall health and lower your risk for acute illnesses, injuries, and chronic diseases.

When should I schedule an urgent care appointment?

  • High fever
  • Swelling
  • Skin rashes
  • Chronic cough
  • Unexplained pain
  • Shortness of breath

The physicians offer testing services on-site for bacterial and viral infections, X-ray and ultrasound, musculoskeletal strains and sprains, asthma, and other symptoms to provide you with an accurate diagnosis. They can also evaluate sudden behavioral changes in children and adults during an urgent care appointment. 

If you’re not sure whether you need immediate medical attention, you can contact the office to discuss your symptoms with the team.

When you have a head injury, a broken bone, loss of consciousness, or another type of serious medical issue, seek immediate help at a hospital or call 911.

What happens during an urgent care visit?

During your urgent care visit, the team spends time reviewing your symptoms. They may complete a physical exam and order diagnostic tests to confirm the cause of your symptoms.

For instance, if you have a persistent cough or shortness of breath, you might need flu or COVID-19 testing or an evaluation for asthma. The team also offers on-site ultrasounds to identify the cause of abdominal and musculoskeletal pain.

Based on the results of your physical and testing, the team customizes a treatment plan to help you feel better. They can prescribe medications and recommend home remedies you can use to relieve pain and other symptoms.

If you need additional treatment, the team can refer you to a specialist in the area. They also offer follow-up appointments to ensure that your treatment is working and that you’re recovering fully.
