Urgent Care Q & A

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is on-demand, walk-in medical care when you experience a sudden, unexpected illness or injury. You will often visit an urgent care clinic when you need a same-day appointment, and your regular primary care doctor is too busy.

The Retreat Medical Spa: Henry Kaw, MD, offers urgent care services that include diagnostic tests and treatment. Dr. Kaw recommends you come in for urgent care when you have a non-life threatening medical condition requiring treatment within 24 hours.

Why do I need urgent care?

Urgent care is designed to treat some of the most common health complaints. If you or a loved one has one or more of these symptoms, you may benefit from urgent care:

  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen glands

Aches and pains are a sign you may be coming down with the flu and may need urgent care.

What does urgent care treat?

Dr. Kaw diagnoses and treats a variety of common urgent care health issues, including:

The common cold

A cold builds up over a few days. The most common symptoms include a runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, and headaches. 

Sore throat

A sore throat can be caused by a virus or bacteria, such as strep throat. Dr. Kaw determines the source of your sore throat by taking a culture to prescribe an appropriate treatment. 


Bronchitis is an inflammation of the airways leading to your lungs. You'll usually have a persistent, wet cough with bronchitis. 

Urgent care can also help with other conditions, including:

  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pink eye

Skin infections and sprained ankles are other common reasons to see Dr. Kaw for urgent care.

What happens when I come in for an urgent care visit?

Dr. Kaw quickly evaluates your symptoms. He asks you when the symptoms started. He asks about your health history, including any medications you're taking and existing medical conditions. If he suspects an infection, he takes swabs or samples for testing. The practice offers an onsite lab for rapid results.

Once Dr. Kaw diagnoses the cause of your condition, he recommends treatment to set you on the path to recovery. His goal is helping you feel 100% again as soon as possible.
