Urgent Care Q & A

Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Healthcare

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is medical diagnosis and treatment of injuries and illnesses that need prompt attention but aren’t a true medical emergency. Urgent care is typically provided on a walk-in or same-day basis and covers a wide range of conditions.

Dr. Smith provides high-quality health care when you need it, including personalized attention, diagnostics, and treatment.

What conditions are treated in urgent care?

Dr. Smith and the team at Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Health Care treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries, and medical conditions in the urgent care practice.

Upper respiratory infections

When you or your child have a severe cold, sore throat, or the flu, you want fast treatment to relieve your symptoms and support recovery. Dr. Smith can diagnose your illness and offer appropriate treatment to help you feel better fast.

Cuts and lacerations

If you’ve cut yourself chopping vegetables and it won’t stop bleeding, you should make your way to urgent care at Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Health Care so Dr. Smith can clean and close your injury with stitches or sutures.

Bladder infections

If you’re experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) like painful urination and/or cloudy urine, Dr. Smith can diagnose your illness with a simple urinalysis and provide prescription medication to clear your infection.

Bone fractures, strains, and sprains

If you’ve broken a bone or sprained your ankle, Dr. Smith offers urgent treatment to set and stabilize your injury. You don’t need to go spend hours waiting in an emergency room for a simple fracture or injury to your muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Asthma attacks and symptoms

While asthma attacks are frightening, Dr. Smith can easily and quickly diagnose the cause of your trouble and offer treatments to help open your airways and help you breathe easily.

What’s the difference between urgent care and an emergency room?

An emergency room is equipped to treat serious and life-threatening illnesses and injuries. For example, if you experience chest pain or signs of a stroke, you should call 911 and go to your nearest emergency room. Urgent care is equipped to provide prompt attention for serious, but not life-threatening conditions.

If you have an injury or illness that requires urgent care, make your way to Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Health Care, call the practice, or schedule a same-day appointment online.
