What are same-day visits?

A same-day visit allows you to see your health care provider the day you schedule your appointment. If you experience an acute illness or injury, visiting your provider is essential to prevent complications, such as pain or worsening symptoms. You can also schedule a same-day visit if you have a flare-up from a chronic disease or long-term injury.

The Atlantic Health Medical Associates team proudly provides same-day care for patients needing prompt diagnosis and responsive treatment. If you feel uncomfortable or unwell, schedule a same-day appointment with the team to get the care you need as quickly as possible.
