I've had an unfortunate experience with N. L.M.C.. I made an appointment and had a consultation there. They changed the appt date to a different day. Regardless, I attempted to make it work. I arrived, but 3 hrs later, I had not seen the Dr and needed to leave.. I understand busy, but attempting to make a new appt, I was told the soonest spot. will be next January, and. they refused to make an appointment for me. I am very disappointed since my other physician had recommended them and sent a consult to them.

Went in as a walk in patient around 11:30 am or 12:00, Sunday morning struggling with the flu, I assumed; waited no more than 15-20 minutes before being seen by the Dr., I was out of there and back home between 1:00 and 1:15 pm!!! Remarkable! Not to mention that I only live 5 minutes away...convenient huh. My prescriptions were already waiting for me at a local pharmacy! Like who does that right?...Well Upfront Urgent Care does!����

I've never walked into a doctors office with the expectation of it being a quick stop. It's so convenient and such a warm environment. The faculty is so nice. And as soon as they sit you inside of your room, you don't have to wait 30 minutes for the doctor to see you. They come in right away. Such a nice change.

What a refreshing change. Walked in, saw a Doctor, was treated and walked out, all within 20 minutes. Such competent caring people. Kudos to them, they got it right!
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.
