When you have non-life-threatening conditions, our urgent care can help you treat minor medical problems. It does not, however, replace regular visits to a general practitioner (GP) or a specialist. These visits are a valuable health resource because, through them, the medical professional will develop a relationship with you and your family over the long term.

Before you go to an urgent care visit, it’s important to make a reservation. For appointments or any questions, please call us at (+39) 06 40 06 1402 or click here to contact us. 

After our doctor or clinical team member takes you to an exam room and you will discuss the reason for your visit wit the doctor. Your type of urgent care visit will depend on the types of symptoms that you are having. 

After your visit, we will ensure you understand any aftercare or medications prescribed during your visit. Depending on your visit to FirstMed, one of our staff members may follow up via phone to ask about your recovery process. You may need to schedule a follow-up visit.
