Same Day Appointments Q & A

What types of conditions require a same-day appointment?

You may need a same-day appointment at St. Francis Multispecialty Medical Group for a variety of urgent concerns that affect you or your child. For example, call to come in the same day for issues like: 

  • Fever and chills
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Severe cough
  • Ear infections
  • Digestive distress, including nausea and vomiting
  • Rash or hives
  • Migraines or other severe headaches
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Sore throat or strep symptoms

If you or your child has a chronic condition that you’re having trouble controlling, such as eczema, asthma, or diabetes, call to see if you can come in the same day for evaluation and management. 

Medical issues that can be pre-planned and don’t usually need same-day care include annual physical exams, women’s health checks, routine chronic disease management, and vaccinations. 

What types of services are offered at same-day appointments?

The treatment you receive at a same-day appointment depends on your complaints. The practice has the technology to perform a number of in-office procedures, including blood draws, urinalysis, and skin biopsies, if necessary for your case. 

Same-day appointments mean you get a prompt evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for you or your child. The doctors may prescribe medication, antibiotics, or devices to help ease your symptoms and help you find relief from immediate problems quickly.

What are the benefits of a same-day appointment?

A same-day appointment means you don’t have to wait for days or weeks to get the care you or your child need for immediate symptoms or concerns. A same-day appointment eases your worries and helps prevent the worsening of your condition or complications.

Plus, a same-day appointment saves you an inconvenient, stressful, and costly trip to the emergency room. Of course, if you or your loved one has a life-threatening emergency, like signs of a heart attack or serious wound, the ER is the best place for you. 

If you aren’t sure you need a same-day appointment, call the office. The friendly staff will help you determine if you need to come in and get you scheduled.
