Elevated Urgent Care Services By Experienced ER Doctors

Our team of experienced ER doctors are ready to attend to patients’ unexpected needs. At ContinuEM, we offer an elevated healthcare experience that goes above and beyond what you’re used to elsewhere.

Common Injuries & Illnesses We Treat

Unexpected health problems can really interrupt daily routines and get in the way of living everyday life. We’re here to treat those injuries and illnesses that happen to us all from time to time.

Abdominal Pain

If you’re feeling abnormal abdominal pain and can’t find relief using over-the-counter remedies, further steps might need to be taken to relieve discomfort and get back to feeling normal.

Allergies

Whether seasonal allergies are bothering you or something new has caused an allergic reaction, we can help resolve the issue and test for future management of allergies.

Asthma

If already diagnosed with asthma or someone is having an attack for the first time, we have what you need to clear the airways to get back to breathing normally.

Bites & Stings

Spending time outside means exposing yourself to different insects and wildlife that bite and sting – get relief fast and get back on your feet and back outdoors.

Broken Bones

If you think that you might have broken a bone, it’s imperative to get checked out right away for assessment by a doctor and possible X-rays.

Burns

Burns vary greatly in severity and some can be very painful, going beyond at-home remedies and needing the help of a medical professional to prevent pain, infection, and scarring.

Chest Pains

Feeling tight in the chest or an abnormal rise in heart rate is cause for concern and is a reason to see the doctor immediately.

COVID-19

If you or someone in your household has been exposed to or is showing symptoms of COVID-19, we can help test and treat it accordingly.

Cuts (Lacerations)

We’ve all knicked ourselves before while cooking in the kitchen, playing outside, and doing everyday tasks, so if a cut will not stop bleeding or is deeper than normal then a doctor should get involved.

Dehydration

If you’re feeling dehydrated after a lot of exercise or sunlight exposure and can’t seem to quench your thirst, an IV hydration treatment may be in order.

Diarrhea

Uncontrollable bowel movements or diarrhea that won’t subside can lead to dizziness, nausea, and dehydration if not treated properly.

Ear Infections

Whether you’re prone to ear infections or feel like you have one for the first time in a while, it’s important to get treated before it starts to affect balance and equilibrium.

Eye Infections

Eyes can easily become infected with dust, germs, or bacterial debris which can lead to blurry vision and red, itchy eyes unless treated by a doctor.

Flu

If you’re experiencing a high-grade fever among other flu symptoms, you’ll want to be sure to manage it before it spreads to others.

OB/GYN Services

Unusual spotting, cramping, pregnancy, issues with pregnancy, or other female health-related issues will be handled by an on-site expert to treat women properly.

Rashes

Skin sensitivities and allergies can lead to rashes that may or may not be contagious, so get ahead of spreading a rash by treating it once it’s showing.

Skin Infections (MRSA)

If something has irritated your skin so badly and the coloring is looking off, you might have a skin infection which will likely need antibiotic treatment.

Sprains & Strains

One of the more common causes of sprains and strains on the skeletal and muscular systems is from working out and contact sports, which should be treated right away to avoid further injury.

Stomach & Flu

Feelings of being nauseous and light-headed will coincide with high temperatures and often vomiting or diarrhea, which is likely the stomach flu.

Step Throat

Strep throat is highly contagious and is spread through talking, sneezing, and coughing around infected people, typically leading to an antibiotic treatment.

Sunburn

Spending too much time in the sun can be dangerous for many reasons, one of which is extreme overexposure of the skin to the sun and causing burns that need extra care to heal.

Urinary Issues

If the urge to urinate is unusual and it is uncomfortable while going to the bathroom, it’s possible there might be urinary issues that need to be managed by a doctor.

Vomiting

Abdominal pain plus the inability to keep what’s been consumed down or digested properly could lead to severe dehydration or be signs of further illness.

Wounds

Having a doctor check out a wound before it becomes a bigger issue can help prevent long-term and more serious damage to the body.

On-Sites Medical
Services We Provide

We provide on-site medical services going beyond what you see at typical urgent care facilities to help treat a wider range of diagnoses for every patient.

CT Scans, Ultrasounds, MRI & X-Ray Machines

To see what’s happening internally in someone’s body whether for a pregnancy, broken or sprained bone, possible head injury, or other internal medicine scanning, we have equipment on site to further investigate.

Onsite Testing & Lab Results

In today’s busy world, it’s important to get tested and see results all within the same doctor’s visit. We invest in the latest testing technology in order to provide quick and accurate results.

Sports Physicals

We see a lot of athletes come through our doors, sometimes for their regular physical and sometimes for a sports-related injury they got while practicing or playing their game.

Immunizations & Vaccines

Oftentimes, we are required to get immunized or vaccinated according to the rules of a school, workplace, or travel guidelines – no matter what the reason, we’ve got you covered for your shots.

Pharmaceutical Treatments

Some diagnoses cause for the use of pharmaceutical drug therapies administered and monitored by a doctor, both of which we do for various types of illness injuries.

COVID-19 Monoclonal Treatments

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we make it a priority to stay updated with FDA-approved monoclonal treatments for patients who test positive for the virus and want to combat it.

COVID-19 Testing

We offer different types on COVID-19 testing for our patients who are concerned about exposure to the virus or are presently showing symptoms that may lead to a positive test.

Advanced Imaging

Diagnostic imaging is a field constantly showing advancements in technology and we make sure we have the latest to offer our patients whenever imaging might be necessary.

Infusions

Infusion therapy administers fluids and/or liquid medication using an IV to go directly into a patient’s bloodstream. This form of medicine is often administered when a person is dehydrated or in a severe amount of pain.

Pediatric Services

Children have a tendency to hurt themselves, not knowing the dangers of play both inside and outside. We have pediatric specialists on staff ready to help your kid get back on their feet and play again.
