When an injury, illness or medical condition has progressed to the point that it could potentially become serious, it is essential to take care of it as soon as you can. At Miller Medicine, we understand that not everything can wait for a scheduled appointment. That’s why we offer three different levels of urgent care services at our Tavernier, FL clinic. Stop in as soon as possible to receive a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan for your medical concerns.
What Does Level 3 Urgent Care Include?
Level 3 urgent care services typically encompass the evaluation of a potentially serious condition that would require extensive testing to accurately diagnose. If your illness falls under this category, you may need to undergo any of the following tests to receive the proper treatment for your needs:
- Electrocardiogram. An electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a test that monitors your heart activity. With an EKG, our doctor can evaluate any cardiovascular abnormalities such as an irregular heartbeat. An EKG can even diagnose a heart attack. Cardiovascular conditions, if left untreated, can lead to potentially fatal heart disease. If you think you may be affected by a heart abnormality, you should have it examined as soon as possible.
- Laboratory testing. There are many different afflictions that require laboratory testing to diagnose. Conditions and diseases such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and cancer can be diagnosed with a blood test. We provide quick and timely blood testing to diagnose a wide variety of afflictions.
- X-rays. An x-ray can do more than observe a fracture or broken bone. For example, a chest x-ray can diagnose and evaluate the severity of a patient’s pneumonia. Like EKGs and lab tests, x-rays can also help detect heart abnormalities by giving a clear picture of the heart’s shape and size. It can also clearly show any fluid buildup in the lungs or chest.
