Urgent Care Q & A
When should I go to urgent care?
If you need assistance for a medical concern that isn’t an emergency but can’t wait until the next available appointment, then you should head into urgent care. Call 911 or head to the closest ER if you experience a major or traumatic injury or illness because an urgent care clinic isn’t equipped to handle those cases.
Examples of appropriate urgent care matters include:
- Urinary tract infection
- Cold or flu
- Ear infection
- Minor cuts and burns
- Skin rashes or infections
- Strep throat
If you’re unsure whether or not you need to be seen by Dr. Jaddou, contact the knowledgeable staff at Somerset Family Medicine SFM for recommendations.
What services are offered in urgent care?
As an extension of the primary care services they offer, Somerset Family Medicine SFM offers many on-site urgent care services for your convenience. Those services include:
- Testing for infections
- Specialist referrals
- Cholesterol and blood pressure screening
Dr. Jaddou offers same-day appointments for these urgent care needs. The practice tries to be accommodating with weekdays, very early morning before you go to work, and weekend appointments.
What are the benefits of urgent care?
Locating and visiting an unfamiliar urgent care practice when you’re not feeling good can be quite inconvenient and stressful. Being able to discuss your medical issues with a familiar doctor, on the other hand, makes the experience much more favorable.
Many families feel assured knowing they can see their own doctor right away when an illness or injury strikes them. By offering urgent care services at his primary care practice, Dr. Jaddou can save you the expense and wait you’d have to endure in the emergency room.
As your primary care provider, Dr. Jaddou already has your full medical history on file so he has a more comprehensive view of your health for those acute situations. He can also coordinate your follow-up care much easier when he’s involved in all touchpoints of your care.
Urgent care services also help you manage your sick days. Dr. Jaddou helps you get back to work as quickly as possible and can provide the appropriate documentation for your employer.
