Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is an area of medicine that provides immediate medical care in the outpatient setting to manage your acute illness or injury or a flare-up of your chronic disease. 

Before urgent care, your only option for managing an unexpected health issue was a trip to the emergency room if your primary care provider couldn’t fit you into their schedule. 

With urgent care services at Pinnacle Healthcare System, you can get the care you need without having to spend the entire day in the emergency room waiting area. 

Pinnacle Healthcare System specializes in internal medicine, cardiology, and nephrology. The team provides urgent care services for adults 20 years of age and older. 

What conditions benefit from urgent care?

Pinnacle Healthcare System provides urgent care for all non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. You may benefit from an urgent care visit at Pinnacle Healthcare System to treat your:

  • Nagging cough
  • Fever
  • Flu or cold
  • Sore throat
  • Ear infection
  • Unexpected rash
  • Sprain or strain
  • Minor cut or laceration
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Shortness of breath
  • Vomiting or diarrhea

If you have an injury or illness that may endanger your life, the team recommends you call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room for care. These include severe lacerations, a head injury, or if you think you’re having a heart attack or stroke. 

What can I expect during an urgent care visit?

You can expect comprehensive and patient-centered care during your urgent care visit to Pinnacle Healthcare System. The team of health experts reviews your urgent health needs, as well as your medical history and any medications or supplements you take.

They perform a physical exam and may run various diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. Pinnacle Healthcare System offers on-site diagnostic tests, including ultrasounds and pulmonary function tests (PFTs). 

After your exam, your provider reviews their findings with you and develops a treatment plan that addresses your specific urgent health needs. Depending on your diagnosis, the team may recommend a follow-up appointment to monitor your condition or perform additional tests.
