Urgent care is an area of medical practice focused on addressing immediate health needs that do not fall under the umbrella of emergency medicine. One way to think about urgent visits is to consider whether it would be uncomfortable or disruptive to wait to be seen during a normally scheduled health appointment.
Urgent visits allow access to your practitioner when you need it most, without waiting days for an appointment and worrying about your symptoms or discomfort. It offers not only outstanding health care but also the peace of mind that comes with knowing where to turn when and if an issue arises.
The team at Oasis Healthcare Service Inc. offers numerous services as part of urgent visits. The first step is a quick but thorough diagnostic assessment to learn more about your symptoms and concerns.
A wide range of screening tools is available in-house, giving your practitioner insight into how your body is functioning. Once the source of your symptoms is determined, a course of treatment begins.
Some of the issues that can be diagnosed and treated during an urgent care visit include:
Sick visits are among the most common reasons to book urgent visits. If you experience sudden symptoms and want to begin a course of treatment swiftly, call to set up an urgent visit right away. There is no need to suffer when professional help is readily available.
Sometimes you need routine health care services with a short turnaround. The Oasis Healthcare Service Inc. team is happy to help you meet those needs in a timely manner.
One example is specialized physical exams. You may need a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical to meet hiring requirements. You might need an adult sports physical prior to joining a community or recreation league team. Or you may simply want to come in for routine yearly exams without waiting weeks to be seen.
Screenings available during urgent visits include prostate cancer and colon cancer screenings, skin checks, and COVID-19 testing. Getting answers promptly helps you know where you stand and what to expect in terms of additional screening and treatment.
If you’re scheduled for a cosmetic surgery procedure, you may need to come in for a cosmetic procedure exam. These assessments ensure you are healthy enough to withstand a surgical procedure, and the results are shared with your extended care team.
Hormone therapy is also available during urgent visits. Both men and women can experience disruptive and uncomfortable symptoms when hormones become unbalanced, and getting your levels checked, and beginning hormone replacement therapy are the first steps in finding relief.
