‘Tis the Season to Choose an Urgent Care Center…and Why You Should Make MD Now’s State-of-the-Art Clinics Your Choice
Many people believe that South Florida doesn’t have seasons. But we simply define our seasons in very different ways. And now is the time of year for two of our top seasons—the season for snowbirds to flock to our shores, as well as the season for colds and flu. And whether you’re here for the warmer weather or just weathering signs of sickness, you need to know where to go for medical care.
Seasonal residents often don’t have a primary physician in town. This can leave them thinking they have little choice than to head to the nearest high-priced hospital when sudden sickness strikes. But everyone runs the risk of getting sick during cold and flu season. And many year-round residents want more convenient care than waiting for days or weeks for the first available doctor’s appointment.
So whether you’re here for the season or here to stay, you need to find quality medical care that meets your needs, budget, and schedule. And this type of care can only be found at a quality urgent care center like MD Now. To decide whether urgent care centers are right for you—and why MD Now is the right choice—compare the three treatment options below.
How to Treat the Topic of Treatment
When it comes to medical care, you have three choices:
- Spend a lot of money and time in hospital emergency rooms.
- Wait days or weeks for appointments with your primary physician.
- Simply walk in for high-quality, low-cost, hassle-free medical care at one of our high quality, affordable urgent care centers.
The choice is clear. Urgent care centers provide the medical treatment you need when you can’t afford to pay hospital prices or wait. These centers are ideal for today’s on-the-go lifestyle when we have less time and money to spend than ever. In fact, research shows that urgent care costs are an average of 77% less than emergency room care. And urgent care wait times are significantly lower than both hospital emergency rooms and doctors’ offices.
Why Urgent Care is the Ultimate Care
Urgent care centers have been a part of American healthcare for more than 30 years and are now rapidly expanding into more communities across the country every day. Their popularity is due to their ideal combination of high-quality care, extended-hour convenience, shorter wait times, and lower costs than other healthcare options.
These centers offer a broad range of medical treatments and services and are considered an affordable alternative to hospital emergency rooms in the case of a non-life-threatening medical issue, such as colds, flu, fevers, cuts, sprains, strains, minor bone fractures, wounds, burns, bites, infections, and much more. Some centers also provide basic x-rays, laboratory services, IV fluids, diagnostic tests, routine immunizations, school and sports physicals, and prescriptions. And a select few offer advanced options like EKGs and more.
