Bottom Line: Conditions that involve bleeding, pain and/or infection are considered emergency or urgent care problems.

What Kind of Treatment Can I Expect?

Our primary goal is to keep you safe, comfortable and pain-free. We want to accomplish that as conservatively as possible, and we try to minimize treatment as outlined in published guidelines. Also, we don’t want patients to end up in the ER unless it’s a life-threatening emergency.

Together, we’ll get through this. We’ll do everything we can to help you until this crisis passes, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
