The Question on Everyone’s Mind: Do I Have COVID-19?
The health crisis clouding everyone’s perspective this year is the novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. Every time we hear a cough or feel a slight fever, we may jump to conclusions and assume that we have been exposed to the ubiquitous virus.
But now is the time to counter hysteria with reason. You have legitimate concerns about coronavirus, which is why we have implemented the necessary protocols to care for you. First of all, contact us ahead of time to let us know that you suspect a possible case of COVID-19. We will direct you to our designated entrance to check you in, caringly and carefully. You want immediate attention and we want to make sure we do not expose our staff or our guests to the highly contagious novel coronavirus.
We offer rapid Covid testing as well as PCR testing.
Next, we will administer a test for COVID-19. Dr. G’s Urgent Care has been on the cutting edge of testing and awareness ever since the start of the pandemic. We believe that an informed community is a healthy community, so we have worked to increase education and dispel myths about our current global health crisis.
But your care doesn’t end once you get your test results. We can assess your symptoms, determine what stage and severity your case entails, and refer you to a specialist if you test positive for COVID-19.
Even though our safety protocols surrounding coronavirus are strict, that will not prevent us from providing you the personal care you deserve. We can provide video visits to deliver the best telemedicine solutions directly to your smart device. Dr. G’s Urgent Care also has its own pharmacy, and we can coordinate delivery services if you are quarantined. Even if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of fighting the novel coronavirus, we will join your team, be it virtually or safely in-person.
Common Illnesses and Injuries
One worrisome byproduct of the COVID pandemic is its impact on the healthcare industry as a whole. Emergency room waiting areas are stacking up, so we make it our mission to mitigate the overflow. Dr. G’s Urgent Care treats common illnesses and injuries that emergency rooms might have previously handled, but without that hefty medical bill.
We go a step beyond the standard flu shot, strep throat and bone bruise scenarios. Dr. Graber offers treatments for lacerations, fractures, sprains, dislocations, abrasions and more. As tenured emergency room medics, there’s nothing our staff hasn’t seen. We will always aim to treat and resolve your health concerns in-house, although we have escalated a few recent cases to the local hospital and made sure our patients got the exact care they needed.
Accidents happen, regardless of whether or not you’re a risk-taker. Risk is a commonality throughout our daily lives. Our board-certified caretakers can quickly patch you up and have you back on your feet. From suturing lacerations to stabilizing a muscle or joint injury, our clinic handles a wide array of accidents. Dr. G’s Urgent Care has the capability to expedite x-rays and determine what level of care is needed to mend your wounds.
All too often, our staff reviews cases of patients who are on the fence as to whether or not their bone is broken or fractured. They have avoided the emergency room due to the cost and wait times, which means their fractures went unnoticed. Dr. G’s Urgent Care provides early detection of small fractures that can become more painful if gone untreated.
When the human body endures a sprain, strain or fracture without proper care, it ripples into a long-term condition. The longer a patient goes without resolving an issue, the longer their recovery time will be. Some injuries are so insidious, they become lifelong issues. Dr. G’s Urgent Care can provide x-rays to your general care physician or specialist so that you can continue your recovery after leaving our clinic.
After all, wellness is a team sport and we are playing to win for you!
Flu Shots, Lab Work, and Beyond
Do you have that all-over sick feeling? Illness can be completely debilitating, clouding your mind and shortening your patience. You may have even tried to become an internet sleuth/expert, typing your symptoms into the search bar in hopes of finding an easy diagnosis. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. You should contact a professional if you are experiencing persistent symptoms.
Whether you’re suffering from a common cold or a seasonal virus, it’s important to determine the root cause of the issue. Online detective work often comes up short, or even worse: you might misdiagnose your condition and escalate your sense of panic. Undiagnosed and misdiagnosed issues frequently lead to more serious issues.
Dr. G’s Urgent Care is well-versed in getting you on the road to recovery.
We treat complications arising from the cold, flu, upper respiratory infection, pneumonia, bronchitis, and all of the other seasonal issues you might be facing. If your symptoms persist (even ones you might consider insignificant), it’s important to get ahead of the game and take back control of your health.
Our on-site, state-of-the-art lab empowers the team at Dr. G’s to quickly diagnose your condition. We can help you through the process of putting those symptoms to rest and waking up to a healthier, happier tomorrow. Call (561) 330-9363 to discuss your symptoms and begin your journey to wellness.
Sexual Health and STD Testing
As a female business owner, Dr. Graber prides herself on treating private health matters with discretion and diligence. Time is of the essence when it comes to sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and diagnoses, so let us take care of your most personal needs.
All three Dr. G’s locations offer the full portfolio of STD screening for both men and women.
We take the extra steps to assure patients that their tests and results are 100% confidential. There will never be any judgment from our staff. We are on the same team when it comes to patient care. Our priorities are keeping you healthy and preventing future complications. We are also happy to send along results or speak with your doctor, as needed (but only after your request and approval).
