I went in for an eye infection. There were two young gentlemen ahead of me, and no one else in the waiting room. I waited about 15 minutes before being called back. then they kept me 45 minutes sitting in a room, and taking patients who came in after me. Very unprofessional, I finally walked out and got my money back. Will never go back, stay away from this place. Go to the one before Lake Miriam shopping center, never had an issue there. I would have gone there but they close early on Saturday.

Took my son here back in February for a sinus infection. The list of fees on the wall of the facility indicated that the charges would be around $80 for a visit of this sort. I was told that they accepted our insurance. The doctor was nice enough. My son was diagnosed with a sinus infection and an antibiotic was prescribed. Because he had also been exposed to mono, a test was done for that and came back negative. There were no other patients at the facility that I saw...we were in & out in under 30 minutes. Well...since then, I found out that they are not in the network for our insurance which is my bad....I should have checked before going. But, they tried to file the visit under my husband's name for $181. I took the statement in and spoke with the receptionist about the error and the incorrect charge. I was told that they would fix it. Now, it's October and I'm receiving another bill for $181 office visit charge. I think this place is running a scam. Overcharging patients big time. I will never go back to this place again!

Do not go here! Last resort only. We waited 3 hours and when we finally were seen Dr. Parker was extremely rude. He spent all of 30 seconds with us and gave us an attitude when we asked a question, that he thought he had already answered. Apparently he skipped the class on bedside manner! I wouldn't even give this place 1 star. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Do not use these people, they have no idea what insurance they accept, its all about the $$for these doctors. Don't waste your time. They accepted prestige and I was told by BILLING they accept it, but doctors told staff not to. Guess prestige don't pay enough.

The demeanor and attitude of the nurse and PA were more like what you expect in a prison. Short, unconcerned discussion of my illness and a most dismissive attitude. I would not recommend them at all. Way over priced for such shabby treatment.

Never had a problem before but when I went there this time I saw Doctor Adler. He was too busy with himself to listen or look at my prescription bottles. He asked me if I was allergic to medications and I get anaphalactic reaction and severe pain in my ears from sodium medications in Nsaids and Inhalers. I told him this and he prescribed me a sodium drug that I could have gone to hospital or died from. Instead he lied and said they didn't prescribe Tramadol (I was in a wheelchair for years and have chronic pain, and I am permanently disabled). Tramadol makes me sick but at least it was allowing me to walk. He said Tramadol doesn't help my pain. Tramadol is the popular drug to treat arthritus pain. I am also over 400lbs. I was treated like a drug addict. This doctor is disrespectful and uneducated.
Tips & Advices
Emergency care facilities can treat infants and children. Roughly 16 percent of emergency patients are infants and children, so the medical professionals at these facilities typically have strong experience in pediatric emergency care.
The average wait time will depend on the type of emergency care facility.. Wait times typically average less than 20 minutes at an urgent care facility. At a hospital-based emergency care facility that treats life-threatening conditions, wait times can take as long as an hour or more.
Board certification is not required for emergency care facilities. However, the top facilities are often board certified. At hospitals, many emergency care centers require that their physicians be board certified as a qualification for employment. Two boards that handle this type of certification are the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine.
Emergency care facilities include those that offer urgent care, and some urgent care facilities offer certain primary care services. At these facilities, patients are usually evaluated upon arrival, and a determination is made as to whether the problem requires emergency care, urgent care, or primary care.
Some medical tests and scans are performed at emergency care facilities. These facilities may perform select X-rays and blood tests if this is deemed necessary to assist your treatment. However, the range of medical tests and scans offered is much more limited than those offered as part of standard hospital care.
