Do I Need Immediate Care?

If you have a health concern, you may not be sure whether it requires immediate care or not. There are several ways to determine. Always call 911 if you are experiencing a life-threatening situation. Emergency services are also the appropriate choice for serious burns, severe chest or stomach pains, pressure in your chest, serious head injuries, choking, or seizures.

If you have symptoms that warrant a check-up but cannot reach your primary physician, immediate care is a good option. Minor sprains and cuts, vomiting, cough or cold symptoms, and mild headaches are all examples of issues that can be treated through acute care.

Call our physician if you have any questions. We aim to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible, so trust in our team for outstanding care each time.
