Urgent Care

What is urgent care?

Urgent care addresses medical concerns that require treatment within 24 hours. In most cases, urgent care deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mild to moderate illnesses that have come about spontaneously.

Medinet Family Care Clinic is open Monday through Saturday, so that you can always feel expert care is within reach.  

Why should I choose urgent care?

Urgent care addresses mild to moderate symptoms. If you’re suffering from a life-threatening condition, you should seek medical attention from your nearest emergency room.

If your symptoms are part of a chronic condition, you should contact your primary care physician, who will have a better understanding of your overall health and current treatment regimens.

Dr. Gandhi recommends that you get in touch with him for urgent care service if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea
  • Relentless cough
  • Runny nose
  • Swollen glands
  • Pains and aches

While some of these symptoms might be indicative of a more significant medical condition, Dr. Gandhi can provide you with the symptom relief you need while you wait for your primary care appointment.

What conditions does urgent care treat?

The most common conditions that urgent care addresses include, but are not limited to:

Common cold

A common cold typically exhibits symptoms like persistent sneezing, headaches, coughing, and a runny nose. You’ll notice that the intensity of your cold increases over several days. Early treatment can significantly reduce the chances of it getting out of hand.

Sore throat

Sore throats are typically caused either by a bacterial or viral infection. In most cases, sore throat comes with strep throat. During your appointment, Dr. Gandhi collects a throat swab to determine what the cause of your sore throat is, and hopefully eliminate strep throat from the list.

Bronchitis

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the airways that lead to your lungs. If you suffer from bronchitis, you’ll most likely experience a persistent, wet cough.

Dr. Gandhi can also address a series of other issues that require urgent care, such as:

  • Pink eye
  • Sinus infections
  • Ear infections
  • Skin infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Mononucleosis

When you come in, make sure to discuss your symptoms in detail so that Dr. Gandhi can recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.
