Roc Express-Urgent Care
There is both good and bad in this review. Due to character limit for reviews, I'll skip the good.On their website they call themselves an “urgent care for bones and joints”. They are not an Urgent Care – the statement on the website is grossly misleading. They are a walk-in clinic. You'll see this when you get the insurance bill. For us, billing like that proved to actually be more expensive.For simple bone fractures you will most likely see a physician assistant, not an orthopedic surgeon. You will be billed for a specialist visit even though you have never seen a specialist. During follow up visits, you will be bill for seeing a specialist even if you only see a nurse (or the janitor). You are being billed for visiting a practice owned by a specialist, not for seeing a specialist. This, in my opinion, is a deceptive practice and reflects the greed-filled medical industry that exists in this country.They don't always do things right. Again, character limit, sorry, can't explain
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.
