Same Day Doctor Q & A

What is a same-day doctor?

A same-day doctor is a medical professional who provides urgent care services. If you or a loved one experiences a sudden injury or illness that’s non-life threatening but requires prompt medical attention, a same-day doctor can help. 

In the event of a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room right away. Common symptoms that require emergency treatment include sudden loss of consciousness, bleeding that won’t stop, severe chest pain, and shortness of breath.

What conditions can a same-day doctor visit treat?

Health Solutions offers urgent care treatment for a variety of acute problems, including:

  • Cold and flu
  • High fever
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Broken bones
  • Sore throats
  • Back or joint pain
  • Rashes
  • Sports injuries
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Allergic reaction
  • Asthma attack (mild or moderate)
  • Burns

The same-day doctors at Health Solutions can also perform minor surgery, including stitches, sutures, and biopsy of abnormal moles or growths.

What are the benefits of seeing a same-day doctor?

Scheduling an appointment with a doctor the same day you display symptoms or suffer an injury provides many benefits. For one, it saves you the hassle of waiting in an emergency room. Because emergency rooms see patients based on need, you might end up waiting hours to see a doctor if someone with a more serious illness or injury comes in. 

A same-day doctor appointment is also more affordable than emergency care. Most major health insurance plans cover acute visits. This means you won’t have to pay exorbitant medical fees out of pocket. 

The same-day doctors at Health Solutions also coordinate care with specialists in the area. If for some reason you need further medical attention, your doctor can refer you to an expert nearby. 

What happens during a same-day doctor’s appointment?

No two same-day doctor appointments are exactly alike. Your Health Solutions doctor tailors the appointment to your individual needs.

At the beginning of your urgent care appointment, your Health Solutions doctor reviews your medical history and asks you about the symptoms you’re experiencing. Next, they conduct a physical and neurological exam and check your vitals. If these measures don’t provide enough information, your Health Solutions provider might recommend laboratory testing or diagnostic imaging, like an X-ray. 

After pinpointing the source of your discomfort or illness, your Health Solutions doctor develops a custom care plan. This might include getting plenty of rest and drinking fluids, taking a prescription medication, or wearing a cast or splint.
