Hoag Urgent Care Anaheim Hills
I went in yesterday 8/13/2012 and i needed medical care because I hurt my lower back from moving a large refrigerator. As soon as I got there I was seen by a Sandy M. Barberie, PA. The fist thing she asked was ''describe your pain from 1 to 10 or are you faking it?'' Then after she tells me to turn around so she can check my back and so I turned around and raise my arms at chest level to give her room to check and she tells me" Relax this isn't a strip search" like if I'm the type that gets searched all the time by the police. It i was really unprofessional of her to judge me by the way that I look, I'm a 32 year old Hispanic male that has no chose but to shave my head because of my male pattern baldness. So since I look the way I look I must be automatically going there to try and score some drugs. Fist thing tomorrow I am return my prescription, I rather deal this the pain then them to think that all Hispanics are druggies.I haven't been seen by a DR or have I been to an emergency room since 2008, If I get hurt or I don't feel well I just tough it out and deal with it but this time my pain was unbearable and all she gave me for pain was Motrin. I could of just gotten that at the local grocery store and save myself time and money It's a sad world we live in, These DR's are suppose to help people in need no matter what race you they are.. but If you are white and you look rich don't worry they got you covered!Julio Ponce
Tips & Advices
Under most health insurance plans, urgent care visits will require a copay that is usually less expensive than emergency room visits, but more expensive than standard doctor visits - around $120 on average. Urgent care staff do not have much information regarding individual coverage, so be prepared and check with your insurance provider to understand costs.
It is common for urgent care physicians to recommend follow-up treatment after an initial visit. Most commonly, patients will be asked to return to the clinic or their primary care doctor if symptoms get worse or do not improve in a certain amount of time. Patients might be referred to a specialist for treatment of more complex conditions. Or patients may simply be given a few basic tips for recovering at home. In any case, patients should follow the doctor’s advice regarding next treatment steps.
If needed, urgent care doctors can prescribe medication to treat conditions. This may include antibiotics for an infection or pain medication for a broken bone. Be sure to follow the doctor’s instructions for taking these medicines.
Be sure to explain your symptoms to physicians in as much detail as possible. Note when or where the symptoms first appeared if possible. Inform urgent care staff of any medical conditions you may have, all allergies, and all medications you are currently taking. Also be sure to bring proper forms of identification, and any health insurance cards/information to help process your visit.
You should be able to find a 24-hour urgent care clinic by searching online resources such as yellowpages.com. Be sure the location is included in your health plan network before visiting.
