What Illnesses Do We Treat?

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we treat a wide array of non-life-threatening illnesses, including:

While PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers treatment for common illnesses, we don’t treat life-threatening conditions. So, if you’re experiencing any signs of a medical emergency—for example, chest pain or difficulty breathing—you should call 911 or get to the nearest hospital as soon as possible.

PCP, ER, or Urgent Care: Where to Go for Everyday Illness Treatment

When you’re experiencing one of the non-life-threatening illnesses described above, you have numerous options available to you for where to seek treatment. Your first thought may be to visit your primary care provider. But in many cases, PCPs are booked days, weeks, or even months in advance, which doesn’t help when you need prompt care.

If you’re not experiencing life-threatening symptoms, an emergency room probably won’t be your best bet, either. ERs prioritize treating life-threatening conditions like heart attacks and strokes, which means that patients seeking treatment for a more common illness usually end up having to wait for quite a while. Plus, ER bills tend to be very expensive.

So, where else can you receive everyday illness treatment? For many people, urgent care is a great alternative to PCPs and ERs. Urgent care centers are typically more accessible than primary care offices, and when compared to ERs, they generally offer shorter wait times and lower costs.

Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!
