Urgent Care & Wellness Q & A

What are urgent care services?

Dr. Souidi understands that sometimes issues arise with your health. To handle these needs, he sees and treats patients with acute conditions who need urgent care. That includes any immediate condition that’s not an emergency, such as:

  • Infections
  • Dehydration due to vomiting or diarrhea
  • Fever (in those with compromised immune systems)
  • Coughs and colds that last 10 days or more
  • Sprains and strains
  • Flare-ups of chronic conditions

If your situation is an emergency or is life-threatening, it isn’t an appropriate urgent care case, and Dr. Souidi asks that you go to the nearest emergency center.

How does a doctor promote wellness?

When you see Dr. Souidi, he doesn’t just treat your conditions, he also works to prevent future problems and promote your overall wellness. Preventive medicine is, perhaps, the easiest and most effective way to stay healthy, and Dr. Souidi recommends a range of these services, including:

  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Lab work
  • Mammograms
  • Pap smears
  • Colonoscopies
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Immunizations
  • Lifestyle counseling

Beyond preventive measures to monitor for the development and progression of chronic diseases, Dr. Souidi also helps improve your overall wellness. Depending on your specific goals, he can counsel you on things like:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Stress reduction
  • Relaxation
  • Sleep habits
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight loss

When should you see a doctor for wellness appointments?

If you’re in good health, Dr. Souidi recommends that you have an annual physical examination. That allows him to update your medical records and conduct preventive screenings and tests, many of which you should get yearly.

This wellness appointment gives you the opportunity to discuss any health issues you may be having, from difficulty sleeping to tingling in your fingers. If you have any health or wellness goals, such as weight loss or smoking cessation, discuss them with Dr. Souidi. He may be able to offer insight or support to help you reach your goals.

Whether you’re in need of a wellness exam, you’re suffering from an acute condition, or your health has changed worryingly, call the office to schedule an appointment. You can even book online.
