Urgent Care

Being sick or injured can be a scary experience, especially if you're far from home. FirstMed’s team of English-speaking doctors are prepared to treat a variety of minor injuries and illnesses to quickly get you on the road to recovery.

 

What is considered urgent care?

Urgent medical conditions are not considered emergencies, but they still require immediate attention (within 24 hours).

Urgent care means same-day treatment for minor health concerns, such as:

  • Minor fractures

  • Sprains 

  • Minor burns, cuts or lacerations that may require stitches

  • Mild to moderate asthma flares

  • Cold, flu, bronchitis and pneumonia

  • Fever, sore throat, cough or earaches

  • Skin conditions, rashes, insect bites and allergic reactions

  • Minor to moderate back pain

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)

At FirstMed, we have the skills and equipment required to treat you and your loved ones quickly and effectively.

What to expect at your urgent care visit

When you have non-life-threatening conditions, our urgent care response 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 resource because, through them, you and your family will develop a relationship with your medical professional over the long term.

Although walk-ins are welcomed, we can better serve you if you make a reservation. For appointments or any questions, please call us at (+39) 06 40 06 1402 or click here to contact us. 

Once you are in the exam room, you can discuss the reason for your visit with the doctor. Your type of urgent care visit will depend on the symptoms that you are having. 

During your visit, ensure you understand any aftercare or medications prescribed during your visit by reviewing your medical note and prescription prior to leaving. Depending on your diagnosis or therapy, a FirstMed staff member may follow up via phone to ask about your recovery process, or to schedule  a follow-up visit, if necessary.
