How can Fairview Urgent care help me?
When you or a loved one is sick or hurt, you want to feel better as quickly as possible. If your physician is unavailable, let our healthcare professionals diagnose and treat you in about an hour.
We can diagnose and treat the following conditions and more:
Animal and Insect Bites
From household pets to wild animals and bites/stings from spiders, ticks, bees and other insects, we treat them all.
We treat first- and second-degree burns to prevent infection and permanent scars. This includes symptoms of sunburn.
Cuts and Lacerations
We properly clean and bandage cuts and lacerations and administer stiches (sutures) when necessary.
Poison Ivy, Oak and Sumac
There are options for dealing with the itching and containing the rash. If the rash is widespread or results in numerous blisters, our providers may prescribe an oral corticosteroid. An oral antibiotic can be prescribed if a bacterial infection has developed.
Sprains, Fractures, Broken Bones
We assess sprains, strains, broken bones and dislocations. Splinting can be provided, while we quickly arrange for orthopedic care.
We can troubleshoot abdominal pain, which can be a symptom of appendicitis, gall bladder pain, diverticulitis and many other intestinal illnesses and upsets.
We treat non-life threatening allergy symptoms caused by chemicals, food, pets, pollen and other environmental irritants.
Asthma is a condition, which causes airways to narrow and swell, thus producing extra mucus. During an asthma flair-up, breathing becomes difficult and can trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. We can help control the symptoms.
Backaches, Back Pain
A problem in any part of your spine, which involves bones, muscles, tendons, disks, and ligaments can cause back pain. We can troubleshoot to help determine the source and possible solutions.
Bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs. Bronchitis often results in coughing up thickened mucus, which can be discolored. Our providers can prescribe the proper antibiotics necessary.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
We have the expertise and the x-ray equipment in-house to diagnose and treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Cold and Flu Symptoms
We can treat cold and flu symptoms including fevers, congestion, coughing, and other discomfort. Rapid Flu tests are on-site to accurately diagnose this illness.
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), occurs when the heart muscle has been weakened and does not pump blood as well as it should. Patients should be properly diagnosed and then seek continued medical care for this potentially serious condition.
Dehydration symptoms include excessive thirst, dry mouth or skin, little to no urination, severe weakness, dizziness or lightheadedness, or dark-colored urine. It can be treated with IV fluid replacement.
Diarrhea, whether acute or chronic, can have numerous causes that determine treatment options. Diarrhea can be serious and sometimes lead to dehydration, so it’s important to have it checked out.

Pneumonia, an infection, inflames the air sacs in one or both lungs. A variety of organisms, including bacteria, viruses and fungi, can cause pneumonia. We can determine which organism is the culprit and then prescribe antibiotics or antiviral medications accordingly.
