Need a Derwood MD Urgent Care Center? Come to Rockville!
When you’re not feeling well, crawling under the covers might be the first thought that crosses your mind. Instead of dealing with your symptoms for several days, come to Physicians Now to see a medical professional who cares about your well-being. Our Rockville MD urgent care center offers a variety of services to meet the needs of Derwood patients, both adults and children. Located less than 3 miles away, whether you have a severe cough and sore throat or the signs of a skin infection we can help you feel better immediately.
Treatment When You Need It
Many primary care providers close their offices around 5:00 p.m. each night and take weekends off. In the past, you had to suffer through the weekend or wait in a crowded emergency room if you got sick when your provider wasn’t available.
Physicians Now is open during the evening and on weekends, eliminating the need to go to the emergency room for medical problems that are not life-threatening.
Our urgent care clinic provides a wide range of acute care services for children and adults. Come see us if you have the following signs or symptoms.
- Itchy skin or skin lesions
- Severe cough
- Persistent headache
- Severe vomiting
- Persistent diarrhea
- Signs of dehydration
Our staff members also treat injuries sustained during auto accidents, falls, sports accidents, and other types of accidents. Come to our walk-in clinic if you have a broken bone, sprain, animal bite, insect bite, insect sting, deep laceration, or other injury. We are one of the few urgent care centers in Maryland to offer intravenous fluids for people experiencing the signs and symptoms of dehydration. We also provide stitches for deep wounds, eliminating the need for you to sit in a crowded emergency room with your injury.
Chronic Medical Conditions
Physicians Now also offers many services for people who have chronic medical conditions. Whether you have diabetes or high blood pressure, it is important to keep your symptoms under control. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to nerve damage, blindness, kidney disease, stroke, and heart disease. If you do not keep your blood pressure in check, you increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, heart disease, and other serious medical problems. Come to our urgent care center near Derwood if you need help managing any of the following:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Asthma or emphysema
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
We also offer several types of physical examinations to ensure you are in good health. If you need a sports physical, one of our caring medical professionals will conduct a thorough exam and let you know if you need any additional tests. If your children are starting school soon, they may be required to have comprehensive exams before they enroll. We also perform examinations for commercial drivers who must comply with federal laws regarding motor carrier safety. If you own a small or mid-size company, we can also help you with pre-employment physicals and drug testing for all candidates.
