Urgent Care Q & A

When should I go to an urgent care clinic? 

You may have an instance where you need to be seen as soon as possible and cannot wait a day or two until your primary care doctor has an opening. But you may not necessarily need an emergency room visit (like you would if you have chest pain). In general, you may need urgent care medical services if you have:

  • Lacerations that may require sutures
  • Burning while urinating 
  • Eye redness or discharge
  • Minor broken bones
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Abdominal pain
  • Sprains or strains
  • Diarrhea 
  • Sore throat
  • Ear pain 
  • Fever 

As a same-day medical clinic, Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care can quickly get you in for an evaluation and provide on-site diagnostic testing, including phlebotomy services (labs) and X-rays. You won’t need to go to another clinic to undergo diagnostic services. 

Which types of treatments can an urgent care doctor provide?

Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care provides a wide variety of urgent care treatments, depending on your condition. After examining you and talking with you about the details of your diagnosis, your doctor may recommend:

  • Casting, splinting, or bracing
  • Wound care, such as lesion suturing
  • Prescription medications, including antibiotics

But Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care providers go above and beyond treating your illness or injury. The team also counsels you about home care and lets you know what you need to do to experience a speedy recovery.

How do I prepare for an urgent care visit?

Because Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care is both a primary care and urgent care office, all of your family’s medical records are under one roof. This allows you to have access to a team of medical providers who already know about your medical history and any previous illnesses or injuries you may have had. 

Before you come in to Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care for your urgent care visit, it can be helpful to:

  • Know the details of the accident (if applicable)
  • Make a note of all symptoms or medical concerns
  • Write down all prescription and over-the-counter medications

You should also ensure you have a valid government-issued identification card and updated insurance information available. No matter what, Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care is diligent about ensuring you’re seen promptly anytime you need urgent medical care.

If you have an urgent care need, contact Dr. Al Family and Urgent Care right away. Online scheduling is available, but you should call the clinic directly if you need to be seen today.
