URGENT CARE SERVICES

Treasure Coast Urgent Care specializes in life’s minor emergencies in a clean and friendly environment. Whether it’s the flu or allergies, a cut or a burn, or injuries including strains, sprains, and fractures, our providers have the training to treat you effectively and efficiently. We are experts in handling work-related injuries and automobile accidents. We have the ability to prescribe and administer medications in-office, which can help with pain and inflammation as well as Xrays and certain lab tests if needed.

 

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents are not always visible. Treasure Coast Urgent Care is equipped to handle non-life threatening injuries sustained in an accident. It is important to seek medical attention within 24 hours of any accident to ensure that there are no unseen injuries that may lead to long-term pain or side effects. Unlike chiropractors, our providers are able to give injections of medications such as anti-inflammatories or steroids to help relieve pain and spasms and give almost immediate relief without the risk of injuring the discs in your spine. We can also provide prescription pain medication if it is indicated.

Whiplash is a non-medical term used to describe a number of neck injuries most commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents during impact.  Our providers may recommend a Xray to determine the extent of the damage.  Treatment in most cases includes applying hot/cold compresses and following up if pain does not subside.

Common Signs Include:

  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness in the neck or shoulders
  • Headaches, dizziness or fatigue
  • Blurred vision or difficulty concentrating
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Pain with moving your head

Back pain is an injury that occurs in your lower or mid back.  Short term back pain is a muscle injury caused by sudden impact.  If the spine or tissue surrounding the spine are injured, then your back pain becomes chronic.  Back pain left untreated can lead to future problems, lowering your quality of life.  Our providers will evaluate your injuries, including Xrays and determine the best treatment. Soft tissue damage includes injuries to the nerves, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, especially in knees, feet and ankles. Soft tissue damage is hard to diagnose because it does not always show up on a Xray. Our providers will not only review your test results, but symptoms and levels of pain as well when diagnosing your injury and choosing the right course of treatment.

 

SLIP AND FALL INJURIES

The majority of slip and fall injuries result in relatively minor soft tissue injuries. These injuries include sprained tendons, ligaments and muscles, minor contusions and abrasions, superficial cuts, and minor burns. Serious injuries can occur in some cases including head trauma, fractures, deep gashes and severe burns.  Our providers are equipped to handle the majority of injuries involved with slip and fall accidents.

 

WALK-IN / APPOINTMENT REQUEST

Services are provided on a walk-in basis. However, you can submit an Appointment Request to receive a call back and reserve a place in line during certain times when scheduling permits.

When should I go to Urgent Care instead of the ER?

We provide the highest quality medical care for all non-life threatening emergencies. Some of the many services we provide include treatment for cold or flu symptoms, high blood pressure, rashes, burns, cuts, UTIs, fractures, dislocations, strains or sprains and STD testing. Treatment at our urgent care center cost far less than an Emergency room and the wait time is significantly shorter.  If you have extreme shortness of breath, stroke symptoms, or severe chest pain, call 911.

BROKEN BONES & SPRAINS

While these common injuries share similar symptoms of swelling, pain, bruising and tenderness, their treatments differ on severity. The best course of action for fractures, sprains and strains is to ice and elevate the injured area to reduce pain and swelling and visit one of our locations. With in-office X-ray machines and less wait time than local ER’s, our qualified medical staff can bring convenience to diagnosing and treating your injury.

What Are the Symptoms of a Broken Bone?

Signs and symptoms of a broken bone include:

  • Swelling or bruising over a bone
  • Deformity in the area
  • Pain in the injured area that gets worse when the area is moved or pressure is applied
  • Inability to put weight on the area or pain with movement of the area
  • Loss of function in the injured area
  • In open fractures, bone protruding from the skin – These must be handled in the emergency department. Call 911 or go to the nearest E.R. 

Common Colds & The Flu

Cold and flus’ are both caused by an infection in the upper airways and share some of the same symptoms. Colds tend to be milder than the flu which include fever, body aches, a dry cough and extreme tiredness. Symptoms of a cold have a more subtle onset, while the flu can arise within 3 hours of the first symptom.

Colds are usually 80% or more viral which means antibiotics will not help them get better.  However, we can prescribe medication that can help treat the symptoms and make you feel better faster.  We can test you for the flu and if you are positive, prescribe an anti-viral medication which may help shorten the duration of the flu.  Please come see us at the first sign of illness and delays in care may lead to pneumonia which can be dangerous to children and seniors.”

Cold and Flu Overview.

When you wake up sneezing, coughing, and have that achy, feverish, can’t move a muscle feeling, how do you know whether you have cold symptoms or the flu? It’s important to know the difference between flu and cold symptoms. A cold is a milder respiratory illness than the flu. While cold symptoms can make you feel bad for a few days, flu symptoms can make you feel quite ill for a few days to weeks. The flu can also result in serious health problems such as pneumonia and hospitalizations.

DOT COMPLIANCE PHYSICALS

The Federal Department of Transportation has made it mandatory for commercial drivers to use a licensed healthcare practitioner on the list of the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners for certification or re-certification of your DOT medical card.  If your CDL or medical card is expired or about to expire, then Treasure Coast Urgent Care has you covered. We are open 7 days a week, unlike Chiropractors or other healthcare providers. With more certified practitioners than other facilities, there is no reason to risk your license on a clinic without experience or a practitioner, not on the National Registry. We provide DOT Physicals to all of the Treasure Coast including, Stuart, Palm City, Jensen Beach, Hobe Sound, Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and Tradition.

We know it can be difficult to find a medical provider to sign of on the required DOT physical exam in a convenient and timely manner.  We make it easy and hassle-free for you. Simply call one of our locations to schedule an appointment or visit our Appointment Request Page to receive a call back and schedule your visit.

 

WHO REQUIRES A DOT PHYSICAL EXAM?

If you are in the United States and work for the Federal Department of Transportation, a medical certificate will be required if:

  • You are an operator of a motor vehicle with a weight rating (GVWR) or gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 4,536 kgs (10,000 lbs) or more in the interstate commerce division.
  • You are an operator of a motor vehicle which is designed for or used to transport 15 passengers or more including the driver, in interstate commerce.

WHAT IS AN IMMIGRATION PHYSICAL?

In order to apply for a U.S. green card (lawful permanent residence), you must undergo a medical examination. The purpose behind the examination is to ensure that you are not inadmissible to the U.S. on public health grounds.

However, you cannot simply undergo a medical examination with your regular medical provider. Instead, a civil surgeon who has been specially designated by the relevant immigration authorities must sign off on the required medical examination. The civil surgeons who are qualified to perform green card medical examinations receive special, ongoing training about immigration issues.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE EXAM

In preparation for the medical examination, you should gather the following:

  • A list of what vaccinations you have already had.
  • For anyone in your immigrating family with mental retardation or learning disabilities, a report of their condition and any special educational or supervision requirements.
  • If you’ve had a previous positive skin test for tuberculosis (TB), a certificate from your doctor giving the circumstances of the positive test result, indicating any treatment prescribed and how long it lasted. If you have ever been diagnosed with TB, you must present a written certification, signed by your doctor, proving that you were adequately treated. The certificate must include dates and types of medications you took. If you have ever had an abnormal chest X-ray, borrow the last X-ray films taken and bring them to your medical exam. The actual films, not the typed reports, may be required.
  • If you have had syphilis, a written certificate, signed by a medical provider or public health official, proving that you were adequately treated.  If you have ever had a positive VDRL or other blood test for syphilis, and were not treated, you must bring a written explanation signed your medical provider.
  • If you have any history of harmful or violent behavior resulting in injury to people or animals, or harm to inanimate objects, information that will allow the medical provider to determine whether the behavior was related to a psychiatric or medical problem, or to drug or alcohol use. Harmful behavior includes attempted suicide or self-harm, no matter how minor in nature.
  • If you have been treated or hospitalized for psychiatric or mental illness, or alcohol or drug abuse, written certification including the diagnosis, length of treatment, and your prognosis.
  • If you are being treated for a chronic medical condition or taking medication on a regular basis, be ready to explain your condition(s) and give the names of the medications. You might want to prepare a list.
  • If you’re adjusting status in the United States, a copy of Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, with the top part filled in by you.

What the Doctor Will Examine.

The medical provider will talk with you, review your medical and vaccination history, and give you a physical examination, a chest X-ray, and blood test.

If you are pregnant, you can ask that the X-ray be postponed, though whether this will be allowed depends on which country you are coming from. (Different U.S. consulates are currently following different sets of regulations on this.)

The medical provider will also give you any vaccinations that you are lacking, based on a list of required vaccinations. These include:

  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Influenza
  • Influenza type b (Hib)
  • Measles
  • Meningococcal
  • Mumps
  • Pneumococcal
  • Pertussis
  • Polio
  • Rotavirus
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids
  • Varicella

SPORTS PHYSICALS

Treasure Coast Urgent Care knows how important your child’s health and happiness is to you. Our quick and convenient Sports, School and Camp physicals ensure your child’s safety by determining if they are able to meet the physical demands of these activities.

WHAT IS A SPORTS PHYSICAL?

  • A sports physical is also known as a pre-participation physical exam or PPE. This type of exam is required in Florida and most states when a child starts a new sport, school or camp. If a PPE is not required, our providers still recommend having one to ensure your child’s health and safety.
  • There are two parts of a PPE, medical history and a physical exam. During your child’s medical history, it is important to be honest when answering questions. It is unlikely that any health conditions will keep your child from playing sports completely, but honesty is vital to your child’s overall health and safety. In the physical exam, one of our providers will be looking for common indicators or any potential health conditions.
  • We also recommend an EKG to rule out any underlying heart conditions.  An EKG is a non-invasive test that shows how fast the heart is beating, the heart’s rhythm, and the timing of the heart’s electrical signals.  Heart conditions in children often go undetected, an EKG takes 5 minutes and can save your child’s life.

What Is Occupational Medicine?

Occupational medicine (also known as “occupational health”) is focused on the treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Medical Providers trained in occupational medicine diagnose and treat work-related injuries much more effectively than most primary care providers. They’re up-to-date on federal and state regulations for workforce health and safety, including Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), so they can make the best treatment plans and perform regulatory examinations. Occupational medicine providers often work directly with employers to keep businesses running and employees safe and healthy on the job.
