Acute Care Q & A

What is acute care?

Acute care is designed to diagnose and treat a range of unexpected illnesses or medical conditions that aren’t serious enough for a trip to the emergency room. Acute care is right for you if your medical condition isn’t life-threatening.

Offering same-day appointments for acute care, the skilled specialists at Monarque Health & Wellness can quickly evaluate your symptoms and suggest the right treatment plan for you.

When should I go to acute care?

Acute care isn’t right for you if you have severe symptoms, such as major bleeding, trauma, serious burns, or broken bones that have punctured your skin. However, you may benefit from acute care if you have one or more of these symptoms:

  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen glands
  • Aches and pains

What does acute care treat?

Acute care is designed to treat illnesses that hit you out of the blue — but aren’t severe enough to need emergency care. The experienced medical team at Monarque Health & Wellness is equipped to diagnose and treat health conditions that include:

  • The flu
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Bacterial or viral throat infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Sinus infections
  • Ear infections
  • Pink eye
  • Skin infections
  • Mononucleosis

What should I expect during acute care?

Your medical practitioner at Monarque Health & Wellness quickly assesses your symptoms. They ask when your symptoms started and how long you’ve had them. They want to know about your medical history, including any medications you’re currently taking.

Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may conduct a physical exam. If it’s likely that you have an infection, your doctor takes swabs or samples to send to the lab for testing.

You’ll be provided with treatment right away, to get you on the path to recovery. Your medical practitioner’s goal at Monarque Health & Wellness is to help you feel 100% again as soon as possible.
