What is urgent care?

Urgent care is immediate medical care for an illness or injury. Trying to wait out an illness or injury often worsens your condition, but treating it right away can help you avoid intensive treatments or even hospitalization later. 

NugaHealth Primary Care offers urgent care Monday through Saturday for your convenience. 

What issues can urgent care help with?

Urgent care at NugaHealth Primary Care covers most immediate medical needs, including: 

  • Common cold
  • Flu
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea and constipation 
  • COVID-19
  • Headaches
  • Sinus problems
  • Asthma
  • Infections (eye, ear, sinus, urinary tract, sexually transmitted, and others)
  • Environmental, skin, and food allergies
  • Mild burns and rashes
  • Sports injuries like ankle sprains and muscle strains
  • Muscle aches and pains

Urgent care can also cover women’s health, chronic care, and pediatric care needs. The only situations that urgent care doesn’t cover are life-threatening emergencies. In those situations, go to your nearest hospital emergency room (ER), where they have resuscitative and other life-saving equipment.   

What can I expect from urgent care?

NugaHealth Primary Care understands that you might feel worried or frightened when you need urgent care. Omobolanle creates a calm and soothing atmosphere where you’ll feel supported and reassured. 

Some of the main aspects of urgent care can include:

  • Physical exam
  • Lab test recommendations: blood, urine, saliva, or nasal swab tests 
  • Imaging test recommendations: X-rays, ultrasound, or other tests to evaluate injuries
  • Treatment: medication, in-office treatments, or other therapies

If you have a problem that requires further investigation, Omobolanle may refer you to a local specialist. For example, if you have a complicated injury, you might need to see an orthopedic medicine specialist for treatment specific to your problem. 

Because NugaHealth Primary Care serves as your primary care practice, they have a complete record of your recent medical history. This helps Omobolanle to make the treatment decisions that benefit you the most. 

When you’re sick or hurt, it might seem like it’ll never end. However, with excellent urgent care services available at NugaHealth Primary Care, you’ll start feeling like yourself again soon. Call the office or book an appointment online today.
