Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care provides necessary medical services when you need care for a health issue but can’t wait for an appointment. A Plus Medical has extended evening and weekend hours, as well as same-day appointments, to provide you with much-needed medical care. You can even stop by the walk-in clinic for your convenience.

What types of conditions can urgent care treat?

At A Plus Medical, qualified primary care specialists can manage any urgent non-life-threatening health issue. Some of the most common reasons people visit urgent care include:

  • Coughs, colds, and sore throats
  • Ear infections
  • Digestive distress
  • Fever or flu-like symptoms
  • Minor burns and injuries
  • Animal bites
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Allergic reaction
  • Back pain and headaches
  • Testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Arthritis pain

If you’ve run out of essential prescription medication, need stitches, or have unusual symptoms that suggest flu or COVID-19, urgent care is an alternative to the ER. 

Certain emergencies still warrant an emergency room visit, however. Deep wounds, gunshot wounds, suicide attempts, heart attack symptoms, or other life-threatening emergencies require a 911 call.

What can I expect when I visit urgent care?

The staff at A Plus Medical works hard at making you feel comfortable and welcome, so you get the best possible care. 

During an urgent care appointment, expect the doctor to:

  • Review the reason for your urgent care visit
  • Discusses your medical history and medication use
  • Conducts a physical exam
  • Orders necessary tests, many of which are available in-office
  • Prescribe medication, at-home care, or offer other treatment

You may need to schedule a follow-up after your initial visit to make sure the treatment adequately addressed your issue or if you need an adjustment to medications or therapy. 

Remember that urgent care shouldn’t replace your regular primary care. The practitioners at A Plus Medical offer valuable preventive care in the form of physicals and management of chronic conditions that often can help you avoid an urgent need in the first place.

You can’t plan illness or injury, but rest assured the qualified staff at A Plus Medical is available when you need it. If you need urgent care, call to set up a same-day appointment, or visit the walk-in clinic. Non-emergency care can be arranged using the online booking tool.
