Patient Treatment Information
Rockville MD and Potomac MD
When you don’t feel well, getting the right medical treatments is important. If your provider’s office is closed or you don’t want to spend hours waiting in an emergency department, our urgent care center in Rockville, MD is a convenient alternative.
At Physicians Now, our friendly and caring staff members will assess your symptoms and provide the appropriate treatment, all without the long wait times and expense of going to the emergency room. We provide treatment for injuries and acute illnesses as well as assistance managing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
Asthma and Allergy Management
Seasonal allergies cause a wide range of symptoms, from a stuffy nose and watery eyes to chest congestion and wheezing.
If you have an allergy attack, visit our urgent care center to discuss your symptoms with an experienced provider. One of our medical professionals can recommend a daily allergy medication or other treatments to keep your symptoms in check. Uncontrolled asthma makes it difficult to breathe and can cause life-threatening complications. If you need help managing your asthma or recovering from an asthma attack, Physicians Now can help.
Treating infections quickly prevents them from spreading, so visit Physicians Now if you have any signs of a respiratory infection, genital infection, or eye infection. Bronchitis, pneumonia, and other respiratory infections cause coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing, so getting the right treatment will ease your discomfort and put you back on the road to good health.
Competent, caring medical professionals will assess your symptoms and recommend the right treatments. We also offer screening for sexually transmitted infections and treatment for conjunctivitis and other infections of the eye.
Bites and Stings
Insect bites and stings can cause symptoms ranging from minor discomfort to serious allergic reactions. Our urgent care clinic is the best place to get a bite or sting examined and treated. Animal bites can quickly become infected, so visit Physicians Now if you are bitten by a cat, dog, or other animal. If the animal has not been vaccinated against rabies, you may need a series of rabies shots to protect you from the disease. Physicians Now does not provide rabies shots. If you believe you have been exposed to rabies, proceed to the nearest Emergency Room.
If you are injured in the evening or on a weekend, you shouldn’t have to deal with the pain until your provider’s office opens. The Physicians Now urgent care center has extended hours to make it convenient to get the care you need. We treat cuts, lacerations, and minor burns in a comfortable setting. Our medical professionals also perform foreign body removals, so visit us if you have a splinter or piece of glass embedded in your skin.
Heart Disease and Hypertension
Proper management of heart disease and hypertension (high blood pressure) can prevent strokes, heart attacks, and other serious complications. If you do not have a primary care provider, visit our urgent care clinic to get high-quality medical care. One of our providers can monitor your blood pressure, adjust your medications, and prescribe medical treatments to reduce your risk of complications. We can also refer you to a cardiologist for any necessary cardiac testing.
Broken Bones and Fractures
Broken bones need to be treated right away, but you might find yourself waiting several hours to be seen if you go to the emergency room. Physicians Now is a time-saving alternative to visiting the emergency department, especially when you have a painful injury that needs immediate treatment. At our urgent care center, our staff members will provide compassionate care from the moment you step into the clinic until the time you leave.
The right medical treatments can save your life and help you control chronic illnesses. If you do not have a primary care provider, or your provider is not available when you need to be seen, visit our urgent care center. We also treat acute injuries quickly, making it easier for you to do the things you love.
