We are focused on providing fast, effective care.
Services and Treatments Available
We can treat patients with fever or a cough, as well as those with fractures or injuries from car accidents. If you have a life-threatening emergency, you should immediately go to the nearest hospital emergency room. Otherwise, our staff can help with most medical problems, as well as routine medical visits.
The physicians in our urgent care centers can provide diagnosis and treatment of minor injuries, such as fractures and sprains. Patients who have suffered auto or motorcycle accident injuries can come to one of our centers for an assessment. We use digital x-rays to diagnose injuries, dislocations, and tissue damage. Digital x-rays use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, and provide immediate results that we can save on a cd for your own records or follow-up care.
Patients experiencing fever, coughing and sneezing, or nasal congestion can come to our centers for relief from their symptoms and treatments to keep minor illnesses from turning into serious ones. For example, a patient experiencing symptoms of a common cold should visit one of our centers, as the cold can cause a sinus infection, pneumonia, bronchitis, or several other conditions, especially in children and seniors. The possibility also exists that what you think is a common cold may actually be the flu. Our expert staff can diagnose the flu and provide you with the proper medication to fight it.
Ear, Nose, Mouth, and Throat
Patients with sinus issues or sore throats can come to us for an accurate diagnosis. We can prescribe the correct medication to fight sinus infections and sinusitis, an inflammation of the lining of your sinuses. We can diagnose the cause of your sore throat, determining whether a virus has caused it, or whether it is a result of bacteria, which may require antibiotics. Our physicians can also diagnose and treat ear infections, serious nosebleeds, swollen lymph nodes, and other ear, nose, throat and mouth conditions.
Call Us for an Appointment
Our caring staff is here around the clock seven days a week to help you. We are also trained to meet the unique needs of children, and are skilled at diagnosing their unique medical issues.
