When you are sick, injured, worried, or in pain, waiting hours, days or even weeks to see a physician can be unbearable. And for mini-emergencies a chaotic, crowded, uncomfortable emergency room is often an unpleasant experience. CityMD urgent care offers immediate, professional, personal health care without the wait. Given the few choices, high fees, impersonal service, and long wait times for non-life threatening issues, CityMD is here to fill the void. For fever, pain, coughs, cuts (even those requiring stitches), sore throat, earaches, wheezing, sprains, broken bones or just about any other medical complaint please walk right in.
Some examples of what to expect when youâ€™re evaluated at CityMD :
Scenario 1: Itâ€™s 6pm; youâ€™re still at work, you have a deadline in two days, but this cough just wonâ€™t go away. Youâ€™re congested, canâ€™t sleep and just feel lousy. Your doctorâ€™s office is closed and you donâ€™t have the time or appetite for a costly visit to the ER. You decide to come to CityMD and get checked out. Once you arrive, youâ€™re registered and in an exam in room in under 20 minutes. After being seen by the medical assistants, the doctor comes in and evaluates you. He explains your condition, prescribes you your medicines, and you are on your way to feeling better, all in under an hour!
You will find your care doesnâ€™t stop there. The staff ensures that all your findings, lab results, and X-Rays (if taken) are immediately sent to your primary care physician for prompt follow up.
Scenario 2: Itâ€™s Saturday morning at 10am, you are enjoying a day in the park when you accidentally trip and twist your ankle! Of course everything is closed on the weekend but your ankle doesnâ€™t seem to care, as it continues to throb and swell. You get your stuff together and are all ready to go to the ERâ€¦
Instead, your friend reminds you that CityMD is open on the weekends! Once you arrive, you are quickly placed in a room and the medical assistant immediately realizes you need an X-Ray. A board certified emergency medicine physician walks in and examines you. He agrees, an X-Ray is required, you get some pain medication, and the X-Ray is performed on site within minutes of being seen. The films are reviewed with you, and the physician explains you sustained a small fracture to the lateral part of your ankle. Not what you wanted to hear on a Saturday morning! He explains that this type of injury rarely requires anything more than a splint or cast.
After fitting you for the splint and applying it in the office, you are advised that you will need follow up care with an orthopedic doctor to ensure that your ankle is healing properly. The staff at CityMD is able to refer you to an orthopedist who will see you and ensure proper follow up. You are splinted, given your crutches and your prescription for pain and are on your way, all in less than an hour!
