Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care includes primary care services you can receive immediately or the same day as you experience an illness, injury, or disease. While urgent care can meet your immediate health care needs, call 911 if you or a loved one has a life-threatening emergency.

What happens during an urgent care visit?

When you arrive at National Healthcare Center for urgent care appointments, you don’t have to wait long to see a provider. They check your weight, pulse, blood pressure, and temperature. Your primary care specialist reviews your medical history and asks about the symptoms you have.

They complete a physical examination and might recommend you undergo specific diagnostic tests. Examples include:

  • Urine tests
  • Blood tests
  • Nasal or throat swabs
  • Allergy testing
  • Asthma tests
  • EKG
  • X-rays

After receiving the test results, your provider can diagnose your condition and develop an effective treatment.

What are my treatment options?

The treatment (if any) that’s right for you depends on the type and severity of your illness, injury, or disease. In some cases, your urgent care specialist may recommend watchful waiting, getting plenty of rest, and drinking extra fluids to help you recover from an illness.

The team at National Healthcare Center might suggest medical weight loss, dietary changes, other healthy lifestyle changes, supplements, wound or fracture care, allergy or asthma treatments, immunizations, or prescription medications. They may recommend further diagnostic testing and can refer out to highly-trained specialists as needed for complex medical problems.
