Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides immediate diagnosis and treatment of non-life-threatening medical conditions that require prompt attention.

By partnering with the team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group, you can improve the health of your team, encourage productivity, and provide a happier, more positive workplace.

What conditions does urgent care treat?

The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group provides urgent care for a variety of medical conditions, including:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Cuts or lacerations that might need stitches

  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea

You might also benefit from urgent care if you experience a fracture, strain, or sprain.

What happens during an urgent care appointment?

An urgent care appointment at Occupational Health Services Medical Group begins with a comprehensive physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your symptoms. Let the team know about the events leading up to your injury or illness and its effect on your routine and quality of life.

If you have a sore throat, the team might take a swab to determine if you have strep. If you drop a tool or other heavy object on your foot and it swells, the team might order X-rays or an MRI. 

Ultimately, the goal of urgent care is to pinpoint the source of your discomfort and develop a treatment plan that helps you feel better. 

When should I seek urgent care treatment?

You should seek urgent care treatment if you experience an injury or illness outside of your primary care physician’s normal office hours.

The team at Occupational Health Services Medical Group has years of experience providing high-quality care for a variety of acute health problems and can help you return to work as quickly as possible.
