Urgent Care Q & A

When should I seek urgent care?

If you have an injury or an illness that's not an emergency, you should still seek medical attention. That helps ensure that you don’t have a more serious condition than you thought and that you get treatment if needed. Whether you have a cough, severe sore throat, or sprained ankle, Dr. Chugh can evaluate your condition and make sure you get the care you need.

What services does urgent care involve?

Dr. Chugh offers diagnostic services and treatments for a wide range of non-life-threatening conditions. Some of these include:

  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Colds and other viruses
  • Minor injuries
  • Headaches
  • Sinus problems

If you have minor symptoms, such as a sore throat and cough, that haven’t improved within a few days or if your symptoms have become worse, it’s important to have Dr. Chugh diagnose and treat your condition to lower the risk of complications. If you have an injury, you should have Dr. Chugh examine it to make sure it’s healing properly.

Do I need to make an appointment for urgent care?

You might be able to see Dr. Chugh for urgent care without scheduling an appointment, depending on his availability. If you have a minor injury or illness, please call Dr. Chugh’s office to see if you can stop by for treatment that same day without making an appointment.

What medical information will I need to provide for urgent care?

When you see Dr. Chugh for urgent care, please let him know about your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and any medical conditions you currently have. Whether you’re a new patient or a visitor from out of town who needs urgent care, Dr. Chugh will need to know this information to recommend the right treatment for you. Knowing what medications you’re taking helps prevent harmful interactions from occurring if you need to take anything for your current illness or injury.

Do I need follow-up care after urgent care?

That depends on the kind of illness or injury you have and how severe it is. Dr. Chugh might recommend coming for follow-up care if your condition isn’t improving even with treatment. If you’re from out of town, Dr. Chugh might recommend seeing your primary care physician when you get home.
