Care at the Emergency Room

Our board-certified physicians will perform a physical examination, ask questions about your symptoms, and may order diagnostic tests such as X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, or other imaging studies to determine the extent of your injury or illness.

Once the medical team has a diagnosis, they will develop a treatment plan. Treatment may include medications, wound care, immobilization of fractures, and other procedures as needed.

In some cases, the ER physician may consult with a specialist for further evaluation or surgical intervention if required.

After receiving treatment, you may be monitored in the ER for a period to ensure that your condition stabilizes. In some cases, you may need to be admitted to the hospital for ongoing care.

If your condition is not severe and can be managed as an outpatient, you will be discharged with instructions for follow-up care, prescriptions, and recommendations for any necessary specialist appointments.
