You can’t always predict when you’ll need medical care. That’s why Total Point Urgent Care makes it simple and convenient to see a healthcare professional. We are a walk-in clinic providing care to all, no appointments or referrals necessary. Take a closer look at three urgent care services we offer: stitches, x-rays, and onsite labs.
Whether you cut yourself chopping vegetables or your child gets injured on the playground, stitches can help speed up the healing process. Many times, cuts are easily treated with antibiotic ointment and an adhesive bandage. However, you should seek medical attention if the cut is deep or in a vital area, such as the hands or face.
Before heading to an urgent care clinic, rinse the wound with clean water. Use a little soap to clean dirt and foreign objects from the cut. However, avoid applying hydrogen peroxide, which could damage the injured tissue. Next, wrap the injury with a cloth or gauze pad and apply pressure to help stem the bleeding. Then, seek medical attention as quickly as possible. The faster you get stitches, the lower your chance of infection.
Slips, trips, and falls are no laughing matter. You could have a sprain—or worse, a broken bone. That’s why it’s essential to seek a professional diagnosis if you experience pain and swelling after a fall. The severity of your injury then determines what treatment you require.
Total Point Urgent Care offers digital X-rays to identify broken bones and other problems within the body. Depending on the results of your X-rays, we may recommend casting, splinting, or bracing, all of which we offer onsite. We may also refer you to an emergency room or orthopedic specialist if your injury is severe.
Lab tests analyze your blood, urine, or other bodily tissues for diagnostic, monitoring, screening, or research purposes. Some of the most common reasons to get lab work done include:
- COVID-19 diagnosis
- Flu diagnosis
- Strep throat diagnosis
- Arthritis diagnosis
- Mononucleosis (mono) diagnosis
- Thyroid disease diagnosis
- STD testing
- Urinalysis drug testing
- Full panel blood testing
When you need lab tests, you want quick, cost-effective services. Total Point Urgent Care ensures both by offering onsite lab testing. This allows us to provide a prompt diagnosis, often in a single visit, so you’re not left waiting around for results. Onsite lab testing also makes it easy to ask questions and receive advice then and there. Once you know what’s wrong, you can begin treatment without delay. This may include redirecting you to an emergency room or specialist, depending on your diagnosis.
