Walk in Medical Problems Q & A

What is walk-in medical care?

Walk-in medical problems include health concerns that require primary care or urgent care services. Walk-in care is simply medical care you can receive from Dr. Grewal and his team at Houston Family MD without an appointment. While they schedule appointments over the phone or online, they also see patients who walk in without appointments.

What are common walk-in medical problems?

Walk-in medical problems include non-life-threatening emergencies, illnesses, and unusual symptoms you or your child might encounter. Examples include:

  • Chest pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • High fever
  • Wounds
  • Sports or on-the-job injuries
  • Allergies or asthma
  • Chronic pain
  • Colds and flu
  • Strep throat
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic diseases

The experts at Houston Family MD can treat illnesses or injuries, help you better manage a chronic disease, screen you for health problems, and offer wellness exams, school and sports physicals, and executive physicals.

What happens during walk-in appointments?

When you arrive at Houston Family MD for walk-in medical care, you’re greeted by welcoming staff members. Your provider weighs you and checks your vital signs, including your pulse, blood pressure, and temperature, when necessary.

Dr. Grewal discusses your symptoms and medical history. He completes a physical examination to evaluate your overall health and look for signs of walk-in medical problems. He might suggest you undergo diagnostic tests, such as:

  • Nasal or throat swabs
  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • Asthma and allergy testing
  • Pap tests in women
  • Vision or hearing screening
  • Tissue biopsies
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • X-rays or other imaging tests

These and other diagnostic tests are noninvasive. Dr. Grewal receives the results quickly and uses them to develop a treatment plan when necessary.

Which walk-in treatments are available?

If needed, the Houston Family MD team works with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. They might recommend you make lifestyle changes, consider dietary supplements, or take medications. Dr. Grewal offers birth control for women, routine vaccinations, wound care, injury treatment, and much more.

If you don’t have an appointment for walk-in medical problems, you can still see the family medicine team at Houston Family MD. Make an appointment by phone or online or simply walk in today.
