What should I expect during acute care?

Review of medical history

Your specialist asks about your lifestyle habits, medications, medical history, symptoms, and family history of diseases. If you’re injured, they inquire about what caused the injury. 


Vital signs check

Your provider assesses your temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They also evaluate your body weight and body mass index (BMI).


Physical exam

During a physical exam, your acute care specialist looks at your throat, eyes, nose, ears, and more. They evaluate your breathing, heartbeat, and reflexes and look for signs of injuries or other medical problems.  


On-site diagnostics

Voss Family Clinic offers on-site labs, including urinalysis, blood work, respiratory pathogen panels (RPPs), tissue swabs, STD testing, and biopsies.
