What Does a Non Urgent Doctors Appointment Mean?

If you've been told by your doctor that you need a non-urgent appointment, it can be difficult to understand what that means. In this blog post, we will define what a non-urgent doctor's appointment is and what you can expect from it. We will also provide some tips on how to prepare for your appointment. Having said that, let's get started!

What is a non-urgent doctor's appointment?

A non-urgent doctor's appointment is an appointment that does not need to be made immediately. This type of appointment can usually be made for a later date. Non-urgent appointments are typically for routine checkups or minor medical issues. If you have a more serious medical issue, you will need to make an urgent appointment. Urgent appointments are typically for life-threatening conditions or major injuries. If you're not sure whether your situation is considered urgent, you can always call our doctor's office to ask.

When should I make a non-urgent doctor's appointment?

If you're feeling generally healthy but want to schedule a routine checkup, then a non-urgent appointment is likely what you need. You can also use this type of appointment to discuss any concerns or changes in your health that you've noticed. If you have a minor medical issue, such as a cold or the flu, you can also make a non-urgent appointment to see your doctor.

What are examples of Minor Medical Issues?

Some examples of minor medical issues are a cold, the flu, sinus and ear infections. These are all things that can typically be treated at home with over-the-counter medications. If you have a more serious medical issue, such as a broken bone or a heart condition, then you will need to see a doctor right away.

What are some tips and best practices for making a doctor's appointment?

Some tips for making a doctor's appointment are to call ahead and make an appointment, rather than just showing up. This will help the office staff plan for your visit. It is also important to arrive on time for your appointment, as the doctor may have a full schedule, and running behind could mean that you have to wait longer to be seen. Finally, be sure to bring any pertinent medical information with you, such as insurance cards or a list of medications that you are currently taking. This will help the doctor provide you with the best possible care.

What happens during a non-urgent doctor's appointment?

During a non-urgent doctor's appointment, your doctor will generally ask how you're feeling and if you have any concerns. They may also perform a physical examination. Your doctor may order tests, such as blood work or urinalysis if they think it's necessary. They will also discuss any changes you need to make to your lifestyle or diet. You should always feel free to ask your doctor any questions during your appointment.

Making a non-urgent doctor's appointment is a good way to stay on top of your health as these appointments can help you catch any problems early and get the treatment you need. They can also help you prevent future health issues. If you're not sure whether you need an urgent or non-urgent appointment, contact your doctor's office for more information.

What can you expect from a non-urgent doctor's appointment?

When you go for a non urgent doctor's appointment, you can generally expect to be seen by a nurse or another medical professional first. They will ask you about your symptoms and what has been going on. The doctor may then come in to see you and may order some tests or refer you to a specialist. You can generally expect to be seen within a few days or weeks, depending on how busy the doctor's office is. If you have an urgent medical condition, you will likely be seen sooner. Non urgent appointments are important because they allow you to get the care you need without having to wait for an emergency appointment. They also help to keep the Emergency Room free for people who have more serious conditions.

How Do I prepare for a non-urgent doctor's appointment?

Many people are unfamiliar with the process on how to prepare for a non-urgent doctor's appointment. Having said that here are a few things that you can do to prepare for a non-urgent doctor's appointment.

First, review your medical history with your doctor. This will help the doctor to understand any underlying health concerns that you may have. Be sure to mention any changes in your health, even if they seem minor. Be as open and upfront as possible to allow the doctor to easily diagnose your condition and assign the most appropriate treatment.

Second, make a list of all the questions that you want to ask your doctor ahead of time. This will ensure that you don't forget anything during your appointment and will ensure that all of your questions are addressed.

Finally, be prepared to discuss your current medications with your doctor. This includes any over-the-counter medications that you are taking. Your doctor will need to know about all of the medications that you are taking to make sure that they are safe for you to take.


All in all, a non-urgent doctor's appointment is just what it sounds like - an appointment for a check-up or to discuss any concerns that you have, but that isn't urgent. You can usually make a non-urgent appointment if you're feeling generally healthy but want a routine check-up, or if you have a minor medical issue. If you have a more serious medical issue, however, you should make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.
