What happens at a new patient’s check-up?
In an urgent care center, you can receive treatment for illnesses or minor injuries that are not life-threatening. If you plan to visit these facilities without an appointment, it may be helpful to make an appointment or check in before you arrive to avoid long waits.
In order to make the right decision regarding where you should seek medical treatment, you need to be aware of what urgent care facilities do and do not treat.
Every year, respiratory illnesses, including coughing, sneezing, runny noses, or congestion, bring more patients to urgent care centers than any other condition. The frequency of respiratory illnesses fluctuates with the seasons, but they are always present.
Ear infections occur most commonly among children where they are a regularly occurring issue. Depending on the part of the ear affected, there are different types of ear infections. It is common to experience ear pain, fever, ear drainage, and headaches from an ear infection, but some people do not show any symptoms at all.
Sprains and strains are conditions that often bring individuals to urgent care. Sprains involve ligaments, which are flexible bands of tissue that connect bones and cartilage. On the other hand, strains occur when muscles or tendons are stretched or torn. Swelling and tenderness usually accompany both conditions at joints. Depending on how severe the sprain or strain is, you may or may not be able to put weight on it. A medical professional should evaluate them, as X-rays may be required because they can be hard to distinguish from fractures.
Other injuries such as minor burns, cuts, and bruises are also common reasons one might visit an urgent care center.
How often you will require the services of an urgent care doctor varies based on health, lifestyle, job, and a myriad of other factors. The average urgent care patient utilizes a center approximately every 8–9 months but there is no way of knowing how frequently you will require their services. Luckily, PrimeHealth Urgent Care is open 7 days a week to provide urgent care to patients in Sarasota, FL, and deal with all of life’s minor emergencies.
Unlike regular doctors’ offices, urgent care centers do not maintain extensive medical records. Ensure you bring all necessary medical documentation to the clinic in order to expedite treatment.
Information like your most recent health insurance information and prescription medications can be included here. You may want to keep a record of any significant medical diagnoses and vaccinations you have received.
Additionally, if your child sees a primary care physician (or a pediatrician), make sure you have his or her name and office information. Be sure to have a parental authorization form if you are bringing a minor who is not your child.
Due to the clinic’s lack of relationship with you, your ID is required for verification. Make sure you have any copays or payments prepared before the appointment, so you won’t be caught off guard.
PrimeHealth Urgent Care offers treatment seven days a week. A doctor will inspect the patient with a physical examination and run tests as needed prior to prescribing treatment.
First-time patients receive a check-up during their first visit to the doctor. Those with health concerns, such as new patients, can benefit from this program. During the visit, the patient will discuss any health problems or determine the cause of symptoms. Exams include a comprehensive medical history check, comprehensive examinations of specific parts of the body where the symptoms originate, as well as x-rays and other imaging scans.
