Acute Illness Q&A
What is acute care?
Acute care is an area of medicine that diagnoses and treats health issues that aren’t life-threatening. It’s a health service that manages those unexpected illnesses and injuries that need medical attention, but not a trip to the emergency room.
LSR Wellness is a membership-based primary care practice. This type of medical model allows LSR Wellness to carry a smaller patient load, which means they have more time in their schedule to take care of your acute illnesses and injuries.
The team offers same-day or next-day relaxed and unhurried appointments. You can meet with the team at the office or virtually.
The practice also offers you access to the team by phone or text so you can ask questions and get prompt answers.
When do I need acute care?
You need acute care anytime you have a health issue or injury that needs prompt care, but isn’t life-threatening. Health problems that benefit from an acute care visit at LSR Wellness include:
- Sports injury
- Sprain or strain
- Mild breathing problems
- Sore throat
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Rash or hives
- Allergic reaction
- Exacerbation of your chronic disease (elevated blood pressure or blood sugar)
- Vomiting or diarrhea
What can I expect during acute care?
You can expect comprehensive acute illness care at LSR Wellness. The details of your visit depend on your health issue. Dr. Rosen and the team ask detailed questions to understand your health concerns.
They may perform diagnostic testing to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. LSR Wellness performs in-house lab testing for strep throat and urinalysis to test for UTIs. They can also check cardiovascular health with their electrocardiogram (EKG) machine.
After your exam, the team talks to you about your health issue and provides the appropriate treatment recommendations and referrals. They schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your health and recovery. In some cases, the team may do a home visit.
LSR Wellness is committed to your well-being. For patient-centered acute care from a primary care practice that puts you first, call to speak with a membership coordinator or email the practice today.
