Lanier Urgent Care
Just for clarification...I work in the medical field. And a strict nationwide law has been set for Doctors offices and Urgent care facilities. They are unable to prescribe heavy duty pain medication. If pain medication is needed, patients are directed to the pain clinics. ER and Hospitals are unable to do refills. FYI and spread the word. Its been so for over 8 years now. Doctors get heavy fines if they prescribe pain medications not allowed in their scope. sorry. I do not work for this clinic. I just needed to spread the word. Also, Doctors are so knowledgeable, that an in dept inspection of an infected area is not needed, unless medically called for.
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.
