Our community has certainly gone through a lot during the course of the pandemic. Almost every industry had to change up how things ran in order to stay afloat or provide a service, and the healthcare industry was no different.
But we persevered, and we are about to experience the expiration of the pandemic’s emergency status in May. This will bring about some changes across the country, including some aspects of telemedicine.
The good news is that an in-person visit at AFC Urgent Care South Charlotte is still available to you and is better than ever! We explain why an in-person visit can help you feel better faster below.
Why Should I Come to AFC Urgent Care South Charlotte?
Imagine waking up with an incredibly sore throat and your chest feels congested. There’s no doubt about it, you are sick. When you are feeling less than your best, seeking relief is probably at the top of your mind! The best way to do that is to hop in the car and come see us. We can get you in quickly and you will get the chance to meet with our medical provider in person.
We can take a look in the back of your throat, listen to your lungs and give you a full evaluation to determine what you are suffering from. None of that can happen if you are behind a screen! By being able to see you in person, we can ensure that nothing gets missed and you are diagnosed accurately.
Why Face-to-Face Exams are Important
- Access to further testing
- Better patient/provider relationships
- Accurate and comprehensive diagnosis
- Personal touch
Is a Medical Exam Even Necessary?
We are all so busy that it can sometimes feel like a hassle to stop what you are doing and go in for a medical exam. But if you don’t, you could actually be prolonging your illness or even making it worse by not being seen! Certain illnesses need the right medication or antibiotic to work, so by not getting the care you need, you can actually set yourself up for a longer period of illness.
Our team will have the chance to use all of the diagnostic tools in our repertoire, including X-rays, blood work and rapid tests to get a clearer picture of what is causing your pain or discomfort. A more thorough evaluation ensures a more confident diagnosis and resulting treatment plan.
