Patients suffering from asthma rely on the trained doctors at Hollywood Walk-In Clinic on Selma Avenue to intervene during asthma attacks and exacerbations of the disease. Asthma attacks and other urgent needs can be addressed without an appointment at this well-known clinic.
Most asthma attacks are successfully treated in the urgent care setting, but any time the symptoms are immediately life-threatening, the patient has the greatest chance of survival in the emergency room setting. Whether the patient is seeking care in the ED or urgent care setting, they should always use their quick-acting medication at the first sign of an attack and then immediately proceed for medical intervention.
Patients who suffer from asthma typically work closely with a primary care doctor or even specialist to manage their condition. Hollywood Walk-In Clinic uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure the patient’s primary care physician has access to all records of treatment at the patient’s request, and electronic medical records simplify and speed the communication.
Patients should bring their medications to their appointment to ensure the urgent care physician knows how the disease is being managed. The urgent care doctor may also recommend that the patient follow up with their primary care provider.
Patients seeking treatment for asthma in the walk-in clinic should bring their current medications (bottles are always preferred over a list) with to ensure continuity of care. They should also bring a photo ID, an insurance card if they carry medical insurance, and a form of payment to cover copayments or self pay fees.
The experienced team at Hollywood Walk-In Clinic uses a variety of interventions, customized for patient needs, which may include:
· Short-acting beta-agonists through an inhaler or nebulizer
· Oral corticosteroids to reduce inflammation in the lungs
In rare cases when intubation or mechanical ventilation are required, the patient is stabilized and transferred to the emergency department.
Many patients find convenience in Hollywood Walk-In Clinic’s flexibility, extended hours, and reduced fees. A visit to the emergency room can be several times the cost of an urgent care visit.
The Hollywood community is hard working but at the same time, widely uninsured. We are therefore geared toward the uninsured but we are currently contracting with insurers for the convenience of our insured patients. We are beginning to accept insurance but our 'payment at time of service' prices the same which are listed on our menu of services page.
