That’s why Yaritza Arriaga O'Neill, MD, FAAEM, of Highway Integrative Health Center in Davenport, Florida, offers comprehensive urgent care services. Walk-in visits are encouraged if you or a loved one need prompt care. You can also rely on phone or online booking for less urgent scheduling needs.

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a form of health services that delivers diagnostic and treatment for acute care needs. It serves as a bridge between routine office visits and emergency medical treatment. 

Urgent care offers an alternative if you experience an illness or injury that can’t wait for treatment during a normal office visit. Best of all, if you use Highway Integrative Health Center for your primary care, you can be seen by a provider you already know and trust and who has access to your comprehensive medical records. 

Urgent care is especially valuable to parents. Trying to help a sick or injured child is incredibly stressful, and parents can quickly feel overwhelmed or afraid. Access to top-quality urgent care ensures your little one gets the care they need without having to spend hours in a crowded emergency room waiting area.

How do I know if urgent care is the right fit for my needs?

Deciding where to turn for care isn’t always easy. While many different care needs can be met in an urgent care setting, some circumstances should only be treated in a fully staffed emergency room.

If any of the following apply, call for emergency medical treatment right away:

  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Chest pain
  • Inability to breathe
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Focal weakness, vision loss, slurred speech

If you are uncertain how to best meet your symptoms, call Highway Integrative Health Center to discuss your needs and receive guidance on your next steps. 

If urgent care is the right fit, walk-in and after-hours visits are available. Online and phone scheduling is always an option for less time-sensitive scheduling needs.
