Dallas Acute Care Issue Management
Primary Care Health Services
Acute health conditions have a severe, sudden onset, while chronic diseases have a slower onset and last a lifetime. Examples of acute problems include the flu, bronchitis, headaches, broken bones, or an infection. If you are experiencing any acute health issues, Hillcrest Internal Medicine is here to help. Our acute care doctors in Dallas are well established in their field, with 16 years of combined experience. We provide our patients with high-quality care and effective, compassionate treatment at our top-of-the-line facility.
What’s the Difference Between Acute & Chronic Illnesses?
Medical conditions are categorized as acute or chronic depending on the suddenness of onset and whether they are short- or long-term conditions. We encourage patients to seek help for acute problems, as they can lead to more serious health problems in the future that necessitate chronic disease management. Don’t let an acute condition lead to potentially life-threatening consequences. From the flu to broken bones or strep throat, our doctors are well versed in all forms of acute illnesses and injuries and can see you for any non-urgent health condition.
Should I See an Internal Medicine Doctor?
Our internal medicine doctors see adult patients age 18 and over. These physicians handle more than just yearly physical exams, and can be your trusted go-to for a non-urgent medical condition such as a sinus infection, sore throat, or depression. Urgent health concerns that are non-life-threatening are better suited to urgent care treatment, while acute health conditions that potentially threaten life or limb, such as a heart attack or stroke, require calling 911 for immediate transportation to the emergency room. If you have questions about where you should go to receive treatment, feel free to contact our office.
