Urgent Visits Q & A

What are urgent visits?

Illness or injury can occur at any time — often outside of typical office hours. And even if you do need medical care when your doctor's office is open, your doctor may not be able to see you for a day or two. However, in some cases, waiting that extra day to see someone could mean an easily treatable issue becomes a serious problem.

An urgent visit is an appointment for non-emergency medical care when you're ill or injured and can't wait until the next available appointment without becoming significantly worse. 

The team at Stephen Renzi Medical PC offers urgent visits at their Conshohocken and Troy office locations. Remember, if your problem is an emergency, you should head straight to an emergency room instead and not wait around.

Do I need an urgent visit?

It's not always clear when you should or shouldn't schedule an urgent visit. While you won't want to worry unnecessarily, you certainly don't want to disregard a situation that could turn bad if ignored. Here are some reasons why you should request an urgent visit.

  • Eye irritation or redness
  • Skin rash
  • Mild respiratory issues
  • Dehydration
  • Severe cough or cold
  • Infection
  • Strains or sprains
  • Allergies
  • Falls
  • Fever
  • Severe stomach pain, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Cuts that may need stitches

If, however, you experience severe trauma, excessive bleeding, or a life-threatening injury, you should head straight to your nearest emergency room. Your urgent visit provider doesn’t have the equipment to treat you for these problems and won't be able to deliver the potentially life-saving care you need.

Not sure whether you need urgent care or an emergency room? Call Stephen Renzi Medical PC and clearly describe your symptoms.

How should I prepare for my urgent visit?

In all the commotion of getting ready for your urgent visit, it's easy to forget important information that could delay your care. Before attending any urgent visit, make sure you have your identification, insurance information, and details of your health history and current medication with you. You may also need to fill out some patient paperwork, which you can sometimes do online or at home before you arrive.
