Reddy Urgent Care
New practice that just opened up in late 2007, and they were spectacular. I guess because they are new, there wasn't much of a wait. I was able to get in and out in about 45 mintues, which is usually how long it takes me to even get to the back area of the Athens Regional UC. All the front staff are very helpful and understanding. I saw Dr. Denis on my first visit and he seemed very knowledgeable, and he was nice enough to explain everything in regards to my problem and the RX he gave me. So if you don't feel like waiting around for a long time just to be rushed out of the building, do yourself a favor and visit Reddy Urgent Care. And the waiting room is nice too, though it could use some better magazines than 256 issues of Southen Distinction. woof.

Reddy Urgent Care
I took my daughter to Reddy Urgent Care. Nurse and doctor both asked if my daughter was allergic to anything. I told them both my daughter is allergic to zithromax. The doctor told me my daughter had bronchitis. He called a prescription in to the pharmacy. I got home to give the med to my daughter and it was zithromax.. The same med that I told the doctor and the nurse my daughter is allergic to. I attempted to call back then, but they had already closed. I had to wait until the next day to talk with someone. The lady I spoke with looked at my daughters chart and said it was listed that she is allergic to Zithromax. She was very polite and helpful. She aplolgized and made it right.

I came into your facility because my daughter had a sore throat for several days. The service was awful nurses did not return my phone calls.The Doctor did not prescribe anything to benefit my daughters well being. The girl who answered the phone was extremely rude! Just transfered me without evening listening to me. The only person who actually seemed like they were interested in my daughters well being was a girl named Beckie I think her name was. She was very sweet and kind hearted. She genuially cared. All of your offices should have a Beckie!! She's the only reason we will be coming back!! If we come back!!!!

My daughter had a pretty sizable gash on her leg. We weren't sure if she needed stitches or if it was something we could successfully treat at home. I asked the woman at the front desk for her opinion. She said she thought we were good to treat it ourselves, but had another nurse and nurses assistant take a look as well. They gave us quick instructions as to what to get at the drug store, saving us much time and money. I am so very appreciative for their help and kindness today!! The office was very nice and clean, I would definitely go back.

Dr. Kolb and staff provided courteous, professional, competent, and prompt attention for upper respiratory infection. The clinic is modern, clean and comfortable. Would recommend without reservation. Next to Jittery Joe's caffeine dispensary to boot.
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.
