Primary care physicians diagnose and treat common health problems, coordinate medical care for patients, manage medications, promote healthy lifestyles, and focus on disease prevention. An urgent care center is a convenient and cost-effective way to treat unexpected health problems outside of a primary care doctor’s office hours. Urgent care symptoms include: moderate fever; colds, cough or flu; minor burns; eye, ear, and skin infections; respiratory infections; bruises, abrasions and minor cuts; and minor accidents that are not life-threatening.
Saint Mary’s Medical Group offers same-day appointments at all of its convenient locations in Reno-Sparks. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 770-SMMG (7664) or visit www.saintmarysmedicalgroup.com.
