Urgent Care Q & A
What is urgent care?
Urgent care offers treatment for acute conditions in an expedient, effective manner. The intention is to get you into the office, treat your condition, and help you feel better so you can get on with your day. At Dr. Nama’s practice, you can walk in or make a same-day appointment so you get the treatment you need when you need it.
What conditions require urgent care treatment?
When you have a medical condition that’s not a true emergency-room emergency but needs care within 24 hours, urgent care is a good answer. The types of conditions that warrant urgent-care attention include:
- Minor broken bones in the fingers or toes
- Severe sore throat and cough
- Urinary tract infections
- Breathing difficulties, such as mild asthma
- Cuts that could need stitches
- Sprains and strains
- Skin rashes and infections
- Vomiting and diarrhea
- Fever and flu
Dr. Nama offers immediate attention to these conditions that do require medical intervention.
What is an emergency room issue?
Health concerns that should be addressed immediately at an emergency room and not at urgent care are those that endanger your life or limbs. Issues such as a heart attack, compound fracture, deep knife wounds or gunshot wounds, uncontrollable bleeding, poisoning, and stroke symptoms are examples of incidences best served by calling 911.
What are the benefits of urgent care?
Urgent care offers advantages over the emergency room and your doctor’s office. At the office of Dr. Nama, you’re seen the same day and don’t have to wait with your symptoms for several days as your condition potentially worsens.
Dr. Nama offers services at a much lower cost than emergency room visits. Unlike the ER, you make an appointment so you don’t have to sit and wait for your turn to be called.
Visits to an urgent care provider reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, which relieves the staff and facilities at ERs so they can focus on true life-threatening cases. If Dr. Nama feels you need emergency room care, she’ll transfer you there immediately.
If you have an urgent need that can’t wait days or weeks for an appointment with your primary care physician, call Dr. Nama or just walk in for your urgent care visit.
