What is considered ‘acute’?
A condition that comes up suddenly is acute â€“ including but not limited to a sore throat, ear/eye infection, rash, animal bite etc.
Chronic conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, medication refills, form completions or annual physicals) are not considered urgent and should be managed through routine office appointments.
