Emergency Medical Services You Didn’t Know You Could Get At an Urgent Care Facility
Emergency rooms provide critical services and procedures in response to life-threatening physical problems. Unfortunately, they aren’t well-suited for patients who need timely help with non-life-threatening health issues. In turn, more and more people are relying on urgent care facilities, which offer prompt medical service from experienced physicians.
A Broad Spectrum of Care
In addition to providing treatment for a host of common general illnesses, PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers on-site digital x-ray capabilities to help diagnose and treat a wide array of illnesses and injuries. As a full-service walk-in urgent care clinic, we’re able to provide quick in-house imaging services, which means you’ll never have to travel to have your results interpreted. Each x-ray is reviewed by an on-site, board-certified radiologist, who will identify the problem and decide whether you need a cast, a brace, or surgical intervention.
With that said, our on-site x-ray technology isn’t just useful for fractures and broken bones. It can also play a critical role in diagnosing a number of health complications, including:
- Foreign bodies
- Joint dislocations
- Bowel obstructions and stomach issues
- Kidney stones
- Fluid or congestion in the lungs
Tests and Lab Services
In addition to providing x-ray services, PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers an array of tests and lab services to help identify potentially serious health problems. Because these services are all located on-site, patients immediately receive the testing they need and get the results shortly after. With state-of-the-art lab capabilities, we’re able to perform numerous tests, including:
- Strep throat
- Influenza (the flu)
- I-Stat (basic metabolic panel) for electrolyte imbalance and kidney problems
- Hemoccult- Important marker for rectal bleeding and colon cancer
We also provide an on-site pharmacy, so you can get the medications you need, when you need them. This includes eye drops, topical medications for rashes and burns, anti-diarrheal medications, steroids, anti-nausea drugs, muscle relaxers, allergy medications, anti-inflammatory medications, antibiotics, and limited pain medications.
With so many medical services available without the need for an appointment, urgent care facilities are a great alternative to busy ERs. As one of the state’s premier full-service walk-in providers, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is proud to be one of the most popular choices for Connecticut residents.
