Treatment for Acute Illnesses

An acute illness is one that develops suddenly. You will typically notice the symptoms of an acute illness within hours or days instead of months or years as you would with a chronic illness. The caring professionals at Physicians Now diagnose and treat the following acute illnesses:

  • Sinus infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchitis
  • Bladder infections
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Strep throat
  • Skin infections

Chronic Disease Management

Regular medical care is especially important for those who have been diagnosed with chronic illnesses. If you do not have a primary care provider, you still need a provider to monitor your progress and prescribe any needed medications. Some people with primary care providers have a hard time scheduling appointments because of limited office hours. Physicians Now has extended hours seven days per week, making it a convenient alternative to practices that do not offer evening or weekend hours. These are just some of the chronic diseases one of our providers can help you manage:

Treatment for Injuries

If you have been injured at home or on the job, Physicians Now can help. When you visit us, one of our medical professionals will assess your injury and recommend an appropriate treatment. If necessary, your provider will also disinfect the wound to reduce the risk of infection. Visit our urgent care center if you have sustained any of the following injuries:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Sprains or strains
  • Animal bites
  • Insect bites or stings
  • Lacerations
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Joint dislocations

Radiology and Laboratory Services

Physicians Now offers urgent care services such as on-site laboratory and radiology for your convenience. Blood and urine tests are used to diagnose and monitor a number of conditions, from diabetes to urinary tract infections. X-rays help determine if you have bone fractures, lung infections, arthritis, osteoporosis, or digestive problems. If you suspect your child swallowed a foreign object, an X-ray can help determine the position of the object in the digestive tract.

Occupational Health Services

Physicians Now also offers comprehensive occupational health services for small and mid-size businesses. If you are responsible for hiring employees, you know how important it is to make the right hiring decisions. Our providers conduct pre-employment physical examinations, DOT examinations, hearing exams, and vision exams to help you determine if applicants are fit for duty. We also conduct drug tests to determine if an applicant has used illicit drugs. If one of your employees is hurt on the job, it is your responsibility to arrange for appropriate medical care. We provide high-quality urgent care services for those with occupational injuries and illnesses, helping employers control their workers’ compensation costs while fulfilling their legal obligations.
