    attend to

    Hi there.

    "You may leave and attend to other matters while your prescription is being processed."

    Does 'attend to' mean 'deal with something'?

    Is it OK to rephrase the quote above and without changing its meaning?

    'You may leave and deal with other matters while your prescription is being processed.'

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, both are correct.
