These Health Problems Demand Immediate Care

When it comes to medical conditions, sometimes there is no time to wait, making immediate care critical to a patient's health and peace of mind. Unfortunately, primary care physicians are busy and often unable to see patients in a timely fashion. This can lead to unhealthy and unsafe delays in patients receiving medical care.

Fortunately, our office is accepting new patients and we invite people to visit us for the immediate medical attention they require.

Some health conditions cannot wait

We suggest that patients who are suffering from the following need to visit us right away. Visiting the emergency room is also an option, but the wait may be longer and the appointment will be more expensive. If you are experiencing these symptoms, do not wait for treatment:

These are just a few of the reasons patients visit our office for help but we treat virtually anyone who is in need of immediate care. However, if a person thinks they could be having a heart attack, stroke or seizure, it is best to go to the ER immediately.

We also treat patients after an accident

Anyone who is in an accident should try to visit a doctor that same day. This visit includes someone who is in a car, truck or motorcycle accident along with people who sustain an injury at work or by falling. Visiting a doctor is critical because of adrenaline. During an accident, the body releases adrenaline is designed to help with survival.

Thus, most people will not feel the extent of their injuries for one to several days after. This creates a feeling of being okay when the reality is that there are injuries they need to treat. Self-diagnosing is not possible after an accident. This makes visiting a doctor for a full workup and an exam a critical step for diagnosing and treating any injuries.

Financially, these appointments and treatments are usually going to be paid for by insurance. For example, auto insurance will typically pay for all medical visits relating to an accident. Workers compensation insurance will typically pay for medical care associated with on-the-job injury. Because of that, there is zero reason for patients to not visit a doctor after being hurt.

We can treat and prescribe in our office

We offer immediate care, but the quality of medical care is that of a primary care physician. We can still treat patients and prescribe medication as needed. We can also order any additional test and make referrals to a specialist, if necessary. This makes it possible for our patients to receive quick care and thorough care.
