You should go to the emergency room or call 911 if you have a serious or life-threatening injury such as chest pain, head injury, or open fracture (bone sticking out of the skin). If you’re not sure you need urgent care or emergency care, the triage team at My NP can provide you with direction.
You can expect patient-centered care during your urgent care visit at My NP. The team asks detailed questions about your concerns and symptoms in addition to reviewing your medical history and the medications you take.
For in-office urgent care visits, they perform a physical exam and may request diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. Testing may include urinalysis, bloodwork, or an X-ray.
Once your provider has a diagnosis, they talk to you about your condition and treatment needs. The team prescribes medication and makes referrals when appropriate. They may schedule a follow-up visit to monitor your health and healing.
You can also see the team through telemedicine if you’re unable to get to the office. You can expect the same prompt and attentive care through your virtual visit, but without having to leave the comfort of your home.
