We can accommodate some patients on the same day.  If you are having a severe problem such as pain, bleeding, inability to urinate please make sure that when you call, you make my staff aware of the problem and we will try to accommodate you that day.
 
Should I go to the Emergency Room?
Many times patients have problems that happen suddenly and the question is whether to go to the Emergency Room or the doctor’s office.  If our office is open we are happy to see you and can save you the time and money of going to the Emergency Room.  If a problem occurs after hours, please call the office and Dr. Kwatra can advise you on the best course of action.
 
I had blood in the urine and was given antibiotics.  Do I need to see Dr. Kwatra?
Although blood in the urine can be due to an infection it is very important to recheck the urine in 1-2 weeks to make sure it is resolved.  If bleeding persists in the urine then other causes such as kidney stones, or cancer should be looked for.  Please call our office to make a follow-up to make sure that the blood in the urine has resolved and no further testing is needed.
 
I went to the ER and they diagnosed me with a kidney stone and my pain is gone, do I need to see Dr. Kwatra?
Many times the pain the patient has with a kidney stone is severe but gradually improves over the next day or two.  This may not mean that the stone has passed.  A stone that does not cause any pain can still lead to permanent kidney damage.  Please call our office to make sure the stone has passed and also to learn about how to prevent further stones.
