You may need testing as well, so AllCare Family Medicine and Urgent Care of Ellicott City has on-site X-ray imaging, an on-site lab, and other state-of-the-art equipment for diagnostic needs.

After diagnosis, your care provider performs any necessary immediate treatment, for example splinting a sprain, and then prescribes any necessary medication or ongoing treatment that you need.

Additionally, your care provider will recommend recovery guidelines. If you need medical documentation of your injury or illness for work or school, you can get it at the end of your urgent care visit.
