Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care services address acute illnesses and injuries requiring immediate attention. Integrative Health DPC offers same-day and after-hours in-person urgent care appointments and telehealth consultations.

The practice offers on-site diagnostic testing and timely treatment to address your illness or injury so you avoid long waiting times and other problems typical of a hospital emergency room.

Why might I require urgent care?

You may benefit from the urgent care services Integrative Health DPC offers if your symptoms don’t respond to home treatment or you don’t know what’s wrong. Such symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Severe cough or sore throat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Severe or persistent headaches
  • Wheezing
  • Abdominal pain
  • Skin rash
  • Weakness and dizziness
  • Persistent vomiting and/or diarrhea

Integrative Health DPC also offers minor injury treatment for burns, cuts, abrasions, ligament sprains, and tendon or muscle strains.

More severe or potentially life-threatening symptoms require immediate hospital treatment. You should call 911 for symptoms like severe chest pain, loss of consciousness, bleeding that won’t stop, fractures, and extensive burns.

What happens at my urgent care appointment?

Your urgent care provider at Integrative Health DPC evaluates your symptoms and completes a thorough physical exam.

If you have upper respiratory tract symptoms, rapid swab testing confirms your diagnosis. Your provider can also order blood tests and/or diagnostic imaging procedures to help determine what’s causing your symptoms or the extent of your internal injuries.

What treatments are available in urgent care?

The treatment you need for an urgent care problem depends on what’s causing your symptoms and their severity.

You might need antibiotics for bacterial infections or a medicated cream for a skin rash. Respiratory tract problems might require decongestant therapies and anti-inflammatory medication; fevers benefit from acetaminophen medication and cold compresses.

Injuries like burns and cuts typically require cleaning and dressing. Some wounds might need stitches to encourage healing. Strains and sprains could benefit from strapping, using supportive equipment, and physical therapy.

If your problem relates to a chronic condition, your provider can offer short-term solutions like stronger painkillers for an arthritis flare-up and/or adjust your existing treatment. Comprehensive chronic disease management services are also available for patients with long-term health conditions.
