What happens during my urgent care visit?

Your caring attending physician at Downtown Medical Group takes time during your urgent care appointment to review your medical history, discuss the details of your symptoms, and address your questions and concerns. Diagnostic blood or urine tests may be ordered to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. 

Downtown Medical Group is equipped with an on-site laboratory, so you don’t have to travel to another location for testing; most of the time, your results will be available within 24-48 hours.

Once your doctor has assessed your condition(s), a treatment plan that relieves pain and other symptoms will be discussed and provided. Urgent care treatment options include:

  • Medical advice
  • Wound dressing
  • Antibiotics and antivirals
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Pain medication
  • Anti-nausea medication
  • Referrals to a specialist as needed

For your convenience, certain medications are available for purchase on-site at Downtown Medical Group.

If a laboratory test is necessary, your doctor contacts you when the results are available and adjusts your treatment if needed. Your attending physician may recommend that you return to the office in a short time to follow up on your urgent condition.
