While PromptCare is equipped to handle a range of acute medical concerns, several medical issues are best suited to a hospital emergency department. Individuals should visit the ER if they experience signs of serious illness or injury, including severe chest pain or difficulty breathing, or serious physical injuries such knife or gunshot wounds, broken bones, or severe trauma to the back, neck, or head. Among the critical health concerns that require the attention of the emergency department are signs of stroke, which can include drooping of one side of the face, as well as weakness in one arm, or slurred speech. Seizures and loss of consciousness should always be addressed by an ER physician, as should severe allergic reactions and cases of suspected poisoning or overdose.
As an urgent care medical center, PromptCare treats minor illnesses and injuries, including cough and sore throat, flu, minor cuts and burns, and stomach ailments. It also facilitates preventative care, including vaccines, physicals, and STD screenings.
As Medical Director of OSF St. Joseph Medical Center’s PromptCare, Dr. Lamont Tyler takes pride in the diverse array of services offered to all individuals on a walk-in basis.
