Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care refers to a level of care that provides prompt medical treatment without waiting for the next available appointment. These services are designed to quickly diagnose and treat immediate, short-term health care needs.

Desoto Family Care Clinic offers urgent care to new and existing patients. If you don’t have a primary care provider, they can schedule any follow-up care you might need or refer you to a specialist when necessary.

What conditions are treated through urgent care?

Urgent care conditions need quick attention but don’t demand the level of care available through your local emergency department.

These are a few examples of health problems frequently treated by the urgent care providers at Desoto Family Care Clinic:

  • Colds and flu
  • Coughs
  • Fevers
  • Sore throat
  • Earache
  • Skin wounds
  • Sprains and strains
  • Chronic pain that flares
  • Sinus infections
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Asthma or COPD flare-ups
  • Headaches and migraines

Desoto Family Care Clinic also offers rapid COVID-19 testing as part of its urgent care services.

When should I go to the emergency room instead of urgent care?

If you’re not sure what type of care you need, call Desoto Family Care Clinic. They can ask a few questions about your symptoms and give you some guidance on the treatment you need. 

You should go to the ER for problems such as:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Fractures
  • Seizures
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Poisoning
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

The signs of a heart attack include chest pain or pressure, difficulty breathing, dizziness, sudden heartburn, and jaw, back, or arm pain.

The first signs of a stroke are weakness in one arm, numbness or drooping on one side of your face, and difficulty speaking. 

What can I expect during an urgent care visit?

The team at Desoto Family Care Clinic quickly reviews your urgent health needs and takes steps to make you more comfortable. Then they review your medical history, learn about the types of medications you take, and perform a thorough exam.

When needed, they run diagnostic tests, getting lab results on the same day. After your exam, your provider explains your condition and develops a treatment plan that addresses your specific urgent health needs.

When you need urgent care, call Desoto Family Care Clinic so they can schedule a same-day appointment and get you back on the path to wellness. You can book an appointment online for non-urgent needs.
