Urgent Care Management

- Accidents and falls
- Sprains and strains
- Moderate back problems
- Breathing difficulties (i.e. mild to moderate asthma)
- Bleeding/cuts — not bleeding a lot but requiring stitches
- Diagnostic services, including X-rays and laboratory tests
- Eye irritation and redness
- Fever or flu
- Vomiting, diarrhea or dehydration
- Severe sore throat or cough
- Minor broken bones and fractures (i.e. fingers, toes)
- Skin rashes and infections
- Urinary tract infections
Chronic Disease Management

Our doctors can often help administer and suggest avenues of treatment for patients whose chronic health conditions require the attention and delivery of a complex care program.
The goal of medical preoperative evaluation is to assess medical problems in surgical patients, to determine how best to manage these problems during surgery, and to provide recommendations for post-operative care. On occasion, the surgeon requesting the consultation will have a specific question. More often, the physician conducting the exam is asked to provide “routine medical clearance.” Preoperative risk assessment is a critical part of this process.
