What happens during urgent care appointments?

When you’re at LexaMD Urgent and Primary Care for an urgent care visit, friendly providers welcome you and usually complete the following:

Vital signs check

Your urgent care specialist evaluates your temperature, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.

Medical history review

Your provider reviews your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, and medication regimen during a medical history review.

Physical exam

The LexaMD Urgent and Primary Care team also completes a physical exam to assess your overall health and pinpoint the cause of worrisome symptoms. They evaluate your eyes, ears, throat, nose, breathing, heartbeat, and the site of pain, redness, or swelling. 

Diagnostic testing

If you need a blood test, urine testing, throat or nasal swabs, allergy or asthma testing, heart-function tests, or imaging procedures, LexaMD Urgent and Primary Care offers these highly effective diagnostic tests.


If you require treatment, your urgent care specialist may suggest rest and fluids, icing an injury, wearing a brace, or wound care. You may require over-the-counter or prescription medicines, intravenous infusions, an inhaler, other breathing treatments, or hospital care.

Specialist referrals if needed

When you have a complex medical condition, you may need to see a specialist. Your LexaMD Urgent and Primary Care provider refers you to one when necessary.
