Acute Care Q&A

What is acute care?

Acute care provides a focused assessment and treatment for short-term illnesses or symptoms. Acute care includes health care when you have a sudden onset of symptoms and you need a sick visit or urgent care. Quality acute care can prevent your symptoms from worsening or your illness from progressing to a more serious health concern. 

Texas Primary Care Specialists offers same-day acute care visits without needing an appointment. When you’ve had a fall or accident or have signs of illness, like strep throat or the flu, the team provides timely diagnosis and treatment. 

As your primary care physician, Dr. Acharya is the best option for providing personalized acute care. Because he knows your baseline health, he is best qualified to provide customized care that considers your medical history. 

When do I need acute care?

You may need acute care if you have a sudden onset of illness or injury or an acute episode associated with a chronic condition, such as high blood pressure or asthma. 

You may need acute care if you have: 

  • Cold or flu symptoms
  • A sore throat, especially with a history of strep 
  • An asthma attack
  • Seasonal allergies
  • A rash or minor laceration
  • A headache
  • An eye, ear, or urinary tract infection 
  • A wound or abscess 
  • A minor burn
  • A strain or sprain

Texas Primary Care Specialists also offers confidential testing for pregnancy, sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV, or hepatitis C. If you have symptoms or known exposure to an STD, HIV, or hepatitis, it is crucial that you seek treatment and follow-up care as soon as possible.

What happens during an acute care visit?

Initially, Dr. Acharya and his team collect information regarding your health history, medications, and current symptoms. The doctor completes a physical assessment and creates an individualized treatment plan for you. 

Your plan of care may include: 

  • Medications 
  • Wound care
  • Laboratory testing 
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • At-home treatments
  • Over-the-counter medications
