Primary Care Express services offered in Federal Way and Tacoma, WA

When an unexpected illness or injury arises, knowing where to turn can make the experience far easier to manage. The team at Prudent Medical Providers in Tacoma and Federal Way, Washington, offers primary care express services to ensure you have access to providers you know and trust even outside of normal business hours. Walk-in visits are available, and you can always call or book online for less urgent scheduling needs. 

What is primary care express?

Primary care express is a service that allows you to get top quality care when and where you need it. Similar to an urgent care clinic, primary care express allows you to connect with your health team to address current symptoms or concerns. 

When you’re feeling sick or in pain, the ability to see a practitioner you already know and trust can make a challenging situation easier to navigate. This is especially important for parents who are trying to soothe a sick or injured child, and who want the treatment process to be as comforting and familiar as possible. 

What kinds of issues can be treated during a primary care express visit?

The team at Prudent Medical Providers has the skills and training needed to address a wide range of health issues. Some of the conditions that bring people in for primary care express include:

  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Skin rash
  • Minor lacerations
  • Allergic reactions
  • Cold and flu symptoms

Don’t suffer with symptoms when help is just around the corner. The team at Prudent Medical Providers is here to get you started on a fast track toward relief. 

When you arrive for your visit, a quick diagnostic exam determines the source of your symptoms and shapes the next steps. Your practitioner gets you started on a treatment path to bring prompt relief. If needed, the administrative staff can schedule a follow-up visit to ensure you’re moving forward in the recovery process. 

How do I know if primary care express is right for me?

It isn’t always easy to know where to turn for medical care, especially if you’re in significant pain or emotional distress. While Prudent Medical Providers can meet numerous urgent care needs, some circumstances should prompt a visit to the nearest emergency room (ER). 

If you experience any of the following, seek emergency medical treatment right away:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Visibly broken bones

Otherwise, feel free to call the Prudent Medical Providers office to explain your symptoms and determine the best course of action. You can also book online for less time-sensitive scheduling  needs.
