Urgent Care or Emergency Room? Which Choice is the Right Choice?
July 27, 2015
Urgent Care | First Care | SIMEDWhen an acute injury or illness strikes, as a patient, you have some important decisions to make.  Sometimes the injury or illness isn't serious enough to warrant going to an Emergency Room, but it certainly needs medical attention. Often it's difficult for you to be seen at your Primary Care doctor's office so what are your choices?

With the increase in the number of Urgent Care clinics which have opened many patients see this as a unique alternative to their healthcare.  They are able to be seen without an appointment (although the payoff is that there might be an extended wait depending on how many other patients had the same idea), and many Urgent Care centers offer a variety of services.

Employers also look to Urgent Care centers to help employees who have been injured on the job.  Employers are able to have their employees examined, treated and are able to have more direct lines of communication with the provider so they can work together to make sure the employee is recovering and back to work as quickly as possible.

Urgent Care centers are a great alternative to busy Emergency Rooms.  They're outpatient medical clinics (in most cases) and are able to charge non-ER rates.  Urgent Care centers can also offer basic preventative treatments such as some vaccinations and medications for travel, flu shots, sports or employment physicals and more. At First Care (SIMED's Urgent Care Center) we have the added benefit that if you are unable to be seen at your Primary Care doc

How Can an Allergist-Immunologist Help Me?
July 6, 2015
At SIMED we get asked the question "Why should I see an Allergy – Immunologist? Can't any doctor treat my allergies?"  The reason why is because an Allergy-Immunologist is a Board Certified allergy specialist that is uniquely trained to diagnoseSIMED Health | Allergy & Asthma and treat allergies. While other doctors claim they can treat allergies they are not Board Certified allergist and have not had the additional years of training and expertise that comes with Board Certification.

A Board Certified allergist-immunologist is a physician specially trained to diagnose, treat and manage allergies, asthma and immunologistic disorders. Each allergist has completed an additional 2 (or more) years of training in allergy and immunology with an accredited training program. Most are certified in internal medicine, pediatrics (or both) and have passed the examination given by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.

The Allergist-Immunologist is uniquely trained in the following:
  • Allergy testing (skin test, in vitro studies)
  • History - Allergy test evaluation
  • Broncho provocation testing (eg. exercise and methacholine)
  • Environmental control instructions
  • Inhalant immunotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Venom immunotherapy
  • Food and drug challenges
  • Drug desensitization
  • Atopic patch testing
  • Evaluation of immune competence;
  • Education (disease, medication, and monitoring)
  • Management of chronic or recurrent conditions in which an allergy is not always identified (rhinosinusitis, conjunctivitis, asthma, cough, u
