With on-site lab testing, X-rays, and other high-tech diagnostic tools, Dr. George can determine the cause of your problem and customize a treatment plan to help you feel better quickly.

Should I go to the emergency room instead of urgent care?

If your immediate injury or illness is life-threatening, you should go to the emergency room.  For instance, if you have a concussion, serious fracture, something stuck in your ear, nose, or throat, or if you think you’re having a heart attack, you should call 911 or head directly to the emergency room.

The urgent care clinic at Birmingham Royal Oak Medical Group is convenient and offers extended hours and same-day appointments.

What can I expect at an urgent care appointment?

When you arrive at urgent care, Dr. George and his staff work quickly to stabilize the situation, run tests, and diagnose your condition. With a combination of traditional, holistic, and natural approaches, they leave no stone unturned when it comes to identifying the source of your sudden illness.

If you’ve sustained an injury, you’ll be cleaned, wrapped, or stitched and given an aftercare plan so you can get back to your normal activities as soon as possible. If you have a urinary tract infection, influenza, strep throat or other illness, Dr. George may prescribe medication to help you get well.

You don’t have to make an appointment, but if you can call ahead or use the online scheduler, the team at Birmingham Royal Oak Medical Group will be standing ready when you arrive with your urgent need.
