Urgent Care Q&A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is an area of medicine that focuses on providing immediate treatment. If you have an ailment that requires prompt care, such as a potentially broken bone or a high fever, you need urgent care. You can walk straight into Sunset Urgent Care and get the care you need right away.

What sets urgent care apart from emergency room (ER) services is the severity of your condition. If you’re experiencing a life-threatening medical problem, head to your nearest ER immediately. 

When should I seek urgent care?

Certain medical issues that Dr. Kwaw can diagnose and treat at Sunset Urgent Care include:

  • Sore throat
  • Breathing problems
  • Rashes
  • Cold and flu
  • Strep throat
  • Sprains and muscle strains
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Mild allergic reactions
  • Shallow cuts
  • Fever

For patients who have an existing condition, such as diabetes, it’s important to seek urgent care treatment if your symptoms suddenly worsen.

What urgent care services are available?

Sunset Urgent Care has in-office lab testing and X-rays to provide comprehensive urgent care. Common urgent care services the practice offers include:

COVID-19 testing

If you’re experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, such as coughing, fever, or the loss of taste and smell, Dr. Kwaw performs rapid COVID-19 testing. A rapid COVID-19 test produces accurate results within minutes, so you can get the care you need as soon as possible.

STD screening

The sooner you know if you have a sexually transmitted disease (STD), the better. With an in-office lab, Dr. Kwaw can test for herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, syphilis, human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from the comfort and privacy of his own office.

Lab testing and X-rays

Sunset Urgent Care is equipped to perform blood work, saliva testing, urinalysis, and X-ray imaging from their office. Whether you’re experiencing chest pain or nausea and vomiting, Dr. Kwaw can diagnose and treat your condition in a prompt manner.

Acute illness care

An acute illness, such as bronchitis or strep throat, requires immediate treatment. If you need medication or antibiotics to treat your condition, Dr. Kwaw can provide the treatment you need.
