Acute Care Management Q & A

What is an acute medical condition?

Acute medical conditions develop suddenly and usually have severe symptoms. This is a major contrast to chronic conditions, which usually develop gradually. Some of the most common acute medical conditions that Dr. Facemyer treats at Austin Square Medical Group include:

  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Bronchitis
  • The flu
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Rashes

There are many other conditions that you might need acute care management for, including flu, allergic reactions, abdominal pain, sports injuries, and migraines. Acute medical conditions aren't normally life-threatening, but they can be serious and require prompt attention. If you have a potentially life-threatening condition, visit the emergency room nearest you right away.

When is the doctor available for acute care management?

Dr. Facemyer sees patients with acute issues during regular office hours. If you're having an acute health issue, get in touch with Austin Square Medical Group, and a team member will fit you in as soon as possible. Normally, Dr. Facemyer offers same-day appointments.

Do I need specific aftercare following a visit?

To support your full recovery, Dr. Facemyer may recommend resting at home, prescription medication, over-the-counter medication, or lifestyle changes.

It’s a rare occurrence, but there may be times when your acute health issue is severe enough to require advanced or continued care and even hospitalization. If you need to see a specialist, such as a Pulmonary Specialist for a serious respiratory problem or a Cardiologist for a cardiac event, Dr. Facemyer can refer you to a trusted specialist in that field.
