Urgent care is for illnesses or injuries that aren’t life-threatening but need immediate attention. If you suffer a sports injury, a skin condition, or unusual discharge from your genitals, urgent care can help.
Other reasons you may need to visit urgent care include:
Life-threatening concerns, like the signs of a heart attack or injuries sustained in an automobile accident, do require emergency room care. Urgent care is not equipped to treat these extremely dire situations.
Triad Internal Medicine offers a broad spectrum of urgent care services, so you won’t have to go to another clinic for diagnostic or treatment needs. The practice provides:
The providers can also apply stitches to a laceration or set a simple break. They may recommend seeing a specialist if you have symptoms that require in-depth care. For example, if you have a complex break in a bone or a possible rupture in soft tissue, you may need to see an orthopedist for further care.
Once your provider diagnoses your condition, they take the time to educate you about your diagnosis and what you can expect during your recovery process. You receive information about the best type of treatment to follow, including at-home care, over-the-counter remedies, and prescriptions.
You should seek a follow-up exam if your symptoms worsen or you develop additional ones. In many cases, your urgent care visit addresses your needs. However, if you need a follow-up appointment, Triad Internal Medicine usually schedules an appointment within 7-10 days.
Depending on your diagnosis and rate of recovery, you may need to come in for additional visits over the next several months.
