I recently sought treatment here for a sore throat and tested positive for strep throat. Other than the hour wait to be seen, which I really did expect, I was satisfied with my experience. Dr. Bersalona was very informative and pleasant. Thirty hours later I was back again with my grandson who in my care for the week. He too tested positive for strep after another hour wait for him to be seen (actually I was prepared for an even longer wait than that by the number of people in the waiting area). Once again it was a satisfactory experience, with Dr Davidson being very upbeat and good with my young grandson. After each visit, the antibiotic script was already in progress when I directly to the pharmacy to pick them up. If they could shave some time off the time we had to wait to be seen, I'd give them a 5 star rating. In their defense, I do realize I'd have had a waiting period in my family physicians office too had they been open at the time I needed treatment.

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.
