Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care offers a way to receive a prompt diagnosis and treatment for acute illnesses or injuries. Absolute Healthcare strives to provide you with quality urgent care so you can recover and feel better faster. 

Some of the conditions they treat with urgent care include: 

  • Colds and the flu
  • Acute bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Strep throat
  • Acute back pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Ear infections
  • Urinary tract infection (UTIs)

When you’re not feeling well or have pain from an acute injury, immediate medical attention can help make the healing process easier. 

When should I seek urgent care?

If your symptoms worsen with at-home treatments and you want to avoid the emergency room (ER) for an acute health problem, urgent care also provides a place to receive treatment.

However, if you have a life-threatening emergency, such as severe bleeding, a loss of consciousness, or major broken bones and fractures, you should visit your nearest ER. Emergency hospital rooms are equipped with life-saving equipment. 

When you’re not sure if your health issue requires an ER visit or urgent care, you can always reach out to Absolute Healthcare. They can assist you in finding the appropriate care for your condition. 

What can I expect during urgent care?

If you have pain that needs immediate treatment, your provider at Absolute Healthcare provides medical care first. They review your personal and family medical history and discuss the type of symptoms you’re experiencing. 

However, if your provider suspects you have an underlying issue, they may order blood tests or other diagnostic tests to evaluate your health better. 

Absolute Healthcare customizes a recovery plan based on your condition and its severity. They can also recommend at-home treatments, medications, or specialist referrals for other types of specialized care. 

Your provider follows up with you to ensure your treatment is working and that you’re on the road to a healthy recovery.

To find out more about urgent care, call the nearest Absolute Healthcare office or book a consultation online today. The practice welcomes you to schedule telehealth visits if you feel ill and don’t want to come into the office for medical care.
