How can I prepare for my urgent care visit?

Many urgent care needs arise very quickly with little in the way of advance notice. However, if you have the time to prepare for your visit, some steps can help your physician deliver the best care.

Be prepared to share a complete list of any medications or supplements you’re taking. Many drugs create adverse effects when used together, so knowing your current medications helps your care team choose the appropriate treatment options. 

Share the details of any conditions you’re being treated for or recently recovered from. It’s also helpful to discuss when you first began experiencing symptoms and what makes them worse. An overview of your personal health history and symptoms gives your physician insight into what might be causing your current set of symptoms. 

If you need urgent care assistance, call Neighborhood Urgent Care or book online today. The practice also offers telemedicine, as well as extended evening and weekend hours to help meet your needs.
