What is Urgent Care?
Imagine waking up in the morning with a fever, sore throat, chills, and a cough. You are run down, tired, and just feel like blahh. You currently have three choices available to fix your problem. You can ignore it, and hope it will go away. You can call your primary doctors office and hope they can “fit you in by next week.” Or, you can bite the bullet and head over to your overcrowded local emergency room and pray you are seen before the next sighting of Haley’s Comet.
The truth is that emergency rooms were not set up for problems like yours; they are there for life & death emergencies. As for your primary care doctor, they are likely overwhelmed spending their time managing their countless other chronically sick patients. Most of their practices are not prepared to see walk-in visits. This is the precise time for you to visit Rapid Response.
We offer a rapid response to most of your immediate healthcare needs. Our staff is trained in treating your colds, allergies, asthma, minor cuts and bruises. We can send off blood work, flu swabs, urine analysis, and offer basic vaccinations as needed. We even offer you immediate digital x-ray to evaluate if you have a broken bone or pneumonia. All of this under one roof, without the red tape involved with getting insurance approval. And should your problem require a specialist, we are prepared to refer you to a top specialist in the area.
It is also our feeling that everyone needs a primary care physician. We will be more than happy to refer you to a local primary care doctor for close follow-up if you do not already have one. And if you currently are under the care of a primary care provider, we will make sure to communicate the events surrounding your visit with them so that they may be involved in your care.
