We provide evaluation and treatment of many common acute symptoms and illnesses. Our aim is to provide same day or less than 24-hour services for these acute problems according to their severity. We try to keep some appointments open every day for "work-in" visits, and our Family Nurse Practitioner usually has time available to help with acute problems.
It is our philosophy that treatment over the telephone has only very limited usefulness, and we will usually ask that you come to the office to be checked before treatment. We are very reluctant to prescribe any drugs by telephone, especially antibiotics.
