Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides immediate diagnosis and treatment for non-life-threatening medical conditions. It offers access to high-quality health care if you or a loved one experiences an illness, accident, or injury that can’t wait for a traditional appointment.

Urgent care is quicker and more convenient than a trip to the emergency room. Emergency facilities see people based on their level of need.

If you cut yourself and visit the emergency room, you might end up waiting hours to see a doctor. That is particularly true if someone else comes in with a more serious health problem like a heart attack or stroke.

What conditions can benefit from urgent care?

At Mountainside Medical Clinic, Liban uses urgent care to treat a variety of common health problems, including:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Cuts requiring stitches
  • Eye redness and irritation
  • Fever or flu
  • Minor back problems
  • Sore throat or cough
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Skin rashes
  • Minor fractures
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, or dehydration

In addition, Liban provides urgent care for sports-related injuries, including sprains and strains.

What happens during an urgent care appointment?

During an urgent care appointment, Liban reviews your health history and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle. 

If the virtual assessment does not provide enough information, Liban orders laboratory testing or diagnostic imaging to rule out potential underlying health problems. Depending on your symptoms, he might recommend a lipid panel, thyroid panel, or a series of X-rays.

Once Liban determines the cause of your symptoms, he develops a custom treatment plan. Typically, this includes prescription medication, drinking plenty of fluids, and getting rest. 

In the event of a medical emergency, what steps should I take?

If you or a loved one experiences a medical emergency, like severe chest pain or a cut that won’t stop bleeding, stay calm, and call 911 right away. If you’re unable to call 911, visit your nearest emergency room. These same rules apply if you experience any serious or concerning symptoms. When your health is involved,  it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
