Acute Illness Management Q & A

What acute illness management services are available?

As a comprehensive internal medicine clinic, the staff of Soriano Med provides both diagnostic and treatment services for a wide variety of acute illnesses. Acute conditions are those with symptoms that come on suddenly and usually resolve quickly with treatment.

Some of the most common acute illnesses the Soriano Med staff treat include:

  • Flu
  • Colds
  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Strep throat
  • Asthma attacks

The Soriano Med team can also diagnose unexplained symptoms, including pain, using the latest on-site diagnostic testing.

What can I expect during an evaluation for an acute illness?

During your evaluation, the Soriano Med staff review your personal and family medical history and perform a physical exam. They also evaluate your symptoms to pinpoint their possible cause.

To identify existing infections, your provider may request blood work. You may need imaging tests, like X-rays, to confirm a bone fracture, pneumonia, or bronchitis.

If you have unexplained pain or other symptoms, the Soriano Med team works closely with you to better understand the root cause of your issues, so treatment can begin as soon as possible.

What treatments are available for acute illnesses?

Based on your condition and the severity of your symptoms, your Soriano Med provider creates a treatment plan that focuses on reducing your symptoms and helping you feel better quickly.

If you have a cold or infection due to bacteria, you may benefit from a course of antibiotics and plenty of rest. Viral infections, like the flu, usually need to run their course before you feel better. Your Soriano Med provider can recommend at-home treatments to keep you comfortable until your symptoms resolve.

For asthma attacks, the Soriano Med team offers on-site spirometry tests to evaluate how well you’re breathing and can provide medications to reduce inflammation in your airways.

If you have pain from a fractured or broken bone, your Soriano Med provider can refer you for additional care to ensure your bone heals properly.

Your provider may recommend a follow-up visit to check the effectiveness of your treatment and ensure your symptoms are resolving as they should.

If you’re not feeling well and your symptoms aren’t improving with home care, schedule an acute illness evaluation at Soriano Med today using the online booking feature or by calling the office now.
