When should I go to VIP Urgent Care?
During off-hours or on Weekends, patients find themselves in a predicament. They don’t now if their problem is serious enough for an ER, or should they wait until their Doctor’s office opens on Monday morning?
Most people don’t even know that there are alternatives out there. Emergency Rooms were created for life-threatening, or life and limb saving emergencies. Urgent Care Clinics were created to treat patients with less-than-life-threatening issues, they are a safe and reliable alternative. If you don’t think your problem is serious enough to go to an ER, however, you still want to get it checked out and don’t want to wait until you can make an appointment with your Doctor’s office, you can consider VIP Urgent Care. Most people don’t realize that a trip to an ER for a non-life-threatening issue can be time-consuming and very expensive!
Just like an ER, VIP Urgent Care takes Walk-In patients without appointments, is staffed by highly trained Doctors, nurses, and medical professionals, and are open longer hours and on weekends.
Also, an insurance Co-Payment at VIP Urgent Care is a fraction of that at an ER, and usually the same as you would pay at your regular doctor’s office.
VIP Urgent Care is staffed by only Board Certified, Emergency Room doctors. The clinic employees all have years of experience working in Emergency Rooms and are all professionally licensed.
Unlike other Urgent Care Clinics, VIP Urgent Care has an in-house laboratory, EKG, and X-Ray for immediate results. There is no need to visit multiple offices for different testing. VIP Urgent Care also has the capacity to repair complex lacerations, and the ability to perform painful procedures under conscious sedation, for maximum patient comfort.
