What to Expect During a Visit
When a patient arrives at Las Vegas Primary Care, staff will ask them to show their ID or driver’s license, provide insurance information, and fill out intake forms.
Once the patient is called in by the clinician, the medical professional will ask questions about symptoms, evaluate the patient’s condition, and discuss the next steps for diagnosis and treatment. Most minor injuries and illnesses can be treated onsite, but some patients may need a follow-up visit with their primary care physician for further treatment.
At Las Vegas Primary Care, patients may be treated with joint and soft tissue injections, pain management therapy, and occupational medicine. Joint and soft tissue injections, such as epidural injections, piriformis injections, sacroiliac joint injections, and trigger point injections, may help alleviate pain from soft tissue injuries.
Pain management therapy may also help minimize pain, and encompasses a range of treatments, such as hot and cold therapy, massage, acupuncture, cognitive behavior therapy, progressive muscle relaxation, meditation, yoga, tai chi, deep breathing, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, opioids, antidepressants, and beta-blockers.
Patients with a long-term injury and illness that interferes with daily life may have difficulty performing job duties. In these cases, occupational medicine could help patients adjust to the demands of the workplace as they go through recovery
Staff at Las Vegas Primary Care are also trained to help employers adapt the workplace to the limitations of injured or ill employees. Occupational medicine can help both employers and injured employees create a long-term plan addressing the needs of both the employer and the employee.
Some patients may need advanced treatment to address severe injuries or illness. Advanced treatment for fractures, for example, may involve physical therapy or surgery. Patients are encouraged to speak to their physician at Las Vegas Primary Care to learn more about obtaining advanced treatment.
