At Miller Medicine, our services involve the treatment of medical emergencies that require immediate care. Our urgent care services come in three levels. Level 1 urgent care visit services include the treatment of any condition or illness that does not require a blood draw to treat. Call us today to learn more about the services we offer and the conditions we treat.
Illnesses Treated with Level 1 Urgent Care
Easily diagnosable illnesses and conditions that are not life-threatening and do not require a blood draw typically fall under Level 1 urgent care. Some of the more common conditions treated on this level include:
- Pink eye. When the conjunctiva of the eyelids become chronically inflamed, the condition is known as conjunctivitis or pink eye. The condition can be caused by bacteria or a virus. Common symptoms of pink eye include red, itchy eyes, eye-watering, or eye discharge. Treatment will depend on the type of conjunctivitis contracted and can consist of medication or an ointment.
- Rashes. A rash can be caused by any number of factors. Contact dermatitis is the technical term for a rash that forms as an allergic reaction in response to irritant contact with the skin. It is a temporary condition that can usually be prevented by avoiding the irritant in question, but it can also be quickly alleviated with a visit to our clinic. If you have a chronic rash that has persisted for several days or weeks, we can help you determine the underlying cause and prescribe the appropriate treatment.
- Sore throat. Like rashes, a sore throat can be caused for a myriad of reasons. You may want to consider making an urgent care visit if your sore throat has lasted for more than a few days or has grown worse over time. We can determine the exact cause of a sore throat and develop a treatment plan designed to help you feel better as soon as possible.
