Abdominal pain can be attributed to a number of different factors – most of which aren’t too serious. However, pain in the abdominal region could indicate that there is in fact a serious injury or illness at work. The faster these injuries or illnesses get diagnosed, the faster they can get treated. That’s why it’s important to visit a physician right away if you’re experiencing any abdominal pains. Even if it just ends up being a routine stomach ache, at least it can give you some peace-of-mind.
Here at AFC Urgent Care, we can diagnose and treat abdominal pains. Between our board-certified physicians and state-of-the-art lab, we can diagnose patients faster than both your primary care physician and local Emergency Room. Plus, we accommodate patients seven days a week with no appointments necessary. That means you can just walk right into our facility to take advantage of our top-notch medical services. We recognize how unbearable stomach aches and other illnesses are, so we make it our number one priority to be as available as possible for our patients.
Our accessibility virtually guarantees that you will see one of our physicians far before you’d be able to see your primary care physician. Our staff has extensive experience in urgent care, so they have treated their fair share of abdominal pains before. We diagnose the following:
- Indigestion/Gas Build-up (this tends to be the most common cause)
- Kidney Stones
- Stomach virus
- Acid Reflux
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Food Poisoning
If our physicians cannot treat the abdominal pain – as some of the more severe symptoms may need to be treated with surgery – they will at least guide our patients to the right path for treatment. Additionally, some patients’ stomach aches may merely be the result of their diet. Our physicians will be able to consult these patients into changing their habits to ensure that the abdominal pain will be kept at bay.
