When do I need acute care?

What happens during an acute care visit?

The specifics of your acute care visit at New Wave Physicians Group depend on your urgent health need. Your provider reviews the reason for your visit, your medical history, and the types of medications or supplements you take. 

They perform a physical exam to assess overall health and then focus on the reason for your visit. For an illness, your provider may run lab work to confirm or rule out an infection. For injuries, you may need an X-ray to check for a fracture.

After the exam, your provider reviews their findings with you and their treatment recommendations, which may include medications, specific treatments, or a referral to a specialist. They may request a follow-up visit to monitor your condition and adjust your plan as needed.
