Terrible! We never saw a doctor. The nurse practitioner was terrible. They didn't even do any lab work and it was definitely necessary. They don't even have a basic testing lab on site. That is terrible for an urgent care facility. Rude staff. I will never take my child there again. It was a waste of time and money. I would give them a <1 rating, if allowed.

Urgent Care Of Kansas City
This place is horrible.After a 3 hour wait the dr.pushed on my daughters stomach and said take her to Children's Mercy she may have appendicitis.So a headache,soar throat and vomiting equals that. Took her to a different doc and she has the flu. A quick swob of the nose is all it took not an e.r visit.Not to mention all of the office help are rude as hell.We will not be going there again.

Don't like these hospitals anymore, they tell you how to discipline ur children why ur there! None of there business! Staff is rude! They try to tell you how to talk just because your around children, if they think that most people don't act like that at home they're crazy!

I am standing in line right now at CMH urgent care blue parkway and have been in line for over 10min while my child is hurting. I went in for possible broken finger and there was only one person working. Finally someone else comes to help after 15min. Of waiting. They have to be more equipped to handle the tragic especially with the start of a new school year and children in sports, etc...

I took my teenage son in to get stitches in his arm. He was treated quickly, the doctor was very thorough, the staff was polite and professional, and the doctor had a great bedside manner. I was impressed with the improved quality of care and professionalism of the staff!

I'm not sure what this place is. No emergency services and their urgent care services are very subpar. I had 2 bad experiences there and will never go back. One doctor was very rude during a strep test and another misdiagnosed a broken arm. Thanks, but no thanks

I would not recommend anyone to this place for anything. They are rude, inconsiderate, and insensitive. Not accommodating at all. They should be a bit more understandable. I was 15 minutes late until my appt. because I had to work, I Still got there 15 before my due time I didn't get to sign in right away either because there was an older woman in front of me who had a walker and obviously was in pain I am not going to rush around her and rudely sign in..???! . They also said since I was a new patient I should have been there 30 minutes early for paperwork I can fill out seriously in 5 minutes. The woman I was dealing with was also VERY RUDE up front, she said in a rude voice that's why you should have been here 15 minutes ago for paperwork, Its all about how long it takes them to do things. Ok I apologized and sincerely asked to be seen I need a doctor she just shook her head and said sorry there is nothing they can do, besides reschedule, MIND YOU there was no one in the waiting room. So I was confused, I do believe honestly they told me that I had to reschedule because they didn't want to stay to see me past closing. Which no one knows if I would have been there past closing. Maybe they should have made me an appointment for AN EARLIER time Considering my symptoms no one knows how long it would take for the doc to examine me, I had also waited 2 weeks for the appointment. I just don't appreciate the way they do things and its not right, they should if they want new patients and to be there 30 min strictly before the appt maybe they need to make the APPOINTMENT 30 MINTUES BEFORE the real appt due time if they are going to be that strict about it. I was just really hurt and upset because the woman I made the appointment with was super nice and sweet and attracted me to pick this office. Who would want to be seen by them if this is how they treat new patients, no thanks.

I called to find out what kind of pricing they had since I was uninsured. No one answered the phone so I followed the voice prompt to leave a message. It said to leave my name phone number and message and the call would be returned no later than 30 minutes. No one ever called me back. I called 4 hours later and the person on the phone was extremely rude to me so I am going somewhere else.

It is very difficult to get in to see the Doctor. The last three times I have called I have actually been told I should go to urgent care if I needed to be seen. The receptionists all have a pretty negative attitude, both in person and on the phone. Since they are who you deal with the most when you go to the Doctor, this makes an impression. I'm going to be looking for a new primary care physician after my recent experiences here. I don't recommend using this office.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
