Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides diagnosis and treatment of injuries and illnesses that require prompt attention.

Routine appointments are ideal for managing long-term medical conditions, checkups, preventive medicine services, and anything that can wait a few days or weeks. 

If you need to see someone more quickly, Integrative Family Medicine and Urgent Care offers immediate walk-in availability to everyone — not just established patients.

The practice’s medical team has over 20 years of urgent care experience covering all age groups, including pediatrics. If you require emergency or specialized treatment for your condition, your provider at Integrative Family Medicine and Urgent Care will refer you to the hospital emergency room.

What conditions need urgent care?

Some common problems that typically require urgent care include:

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma attacks
  • Eye pain or infection
  • Acute back or neck pain
  • New skin rashes
  • Sports injuries 
  • Migraines and other severe headaches
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs), including cystitis and kidney infections
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Chest or abdominal pain
  • Muscle, bone, and joint injuries
  • Burns and lacerations
  • Animal and bug bites
  • Ear pain and infections
  • Allergic reactions

Respiratory conditions like the flu, colds, strep throat, acute sinusitis, bronchitis, and pneumonia are some of the most common causes of urgent care visits.

Integrative Family Medicine and Urgent Care has on-site electrocardiograms (EKGs) to check your heart function, and the team provides rapid diagnostic testing for strep throat, mononucleosis (mono), the flu, UTIs, and COVID-19. They offer next-day, send-out testing for all respiratory diseases.

What urgent care treatment might I need?

The treatment you need for your urgent health problem varies depending on what’s wrong. You might need sutures, staples, or glue to repair a wound. If you’re having a COPD attack, Integrative Family Medicine and Urgent Care offers nebulizer breathing treatments.

Bacterial infections are treatable with antibiotics, but these medicines aren’t useful against viruses like colds and flu. Severe viral illnesses or viral diseases in vulnerable people (like seniors and those in poor health) might require antiviral treatments.

You might need special fluids called electrolytes if you’re dehydrated, which is a common problem if you experience repeated vomiting and diarrhea or spend too long without drinking. 

Rashes might need topical treatments like soothing creams, while eye drops can help with problems like pink eye.
