Acute disease is a term used to refer to illnesses that onset very quickly but typically result in a nearly full recovery within one month.  Acute diseases often produce symptoms that are severe, such as high fever, pain, and complications of various systems and organs within the body, such as the respiratory system, digestive system, etc… Having access to care as soon as possible is a key part of effectively treating an acute illness.  We will strive to arrange for same day appointments during normal clinic hours.  After hours will be managed via email, phone or if indicated a home visit.
