Urgent care is a commonplace to use for acute issues when you are sick, have an accident, injury, or need quick care without having to plan an appointment. Urgent care can also help you with primary care needs when you may be between providers, unable to get an appointment with your PCP, or don’t have a PCP. We can manage a variety of medical conditions and are happy to help you maintain your health.
Chronic medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, thyroid dysfunction, etc can all be discussed with our providers! Although it is best and certainly encouraged to establish with a PCP for routine care, we help with needs for these conditions when there may be difficulties getting to your PCP. We can provide routine refills for most medications, order needed labs for medical conditions, provide education on your condition and management, and help you establish with a PCP if needed, and even refer to specialists.
Although we manage most chronic medical conditions there are certain conditions or medications that require strict monitoring and follow-up that we may refer to your PCP for continued care, so that you receive the best care on an ongoing basis. We will always do everything possible in our centers and discuss with you when needed to follow up for medication management and/or changes.
Chronic pain is best referred to PCP or even a pain management specialist. We can assess and provide therapeutic options for improving pain, range of motion, and function. Although chronic pain medication would require a specialist visit, we will certainly help find local offices and provide referrals to ensure you receive the best care.
