Urgent Care at Its Best

You know that feeling when you’ve had about six cups of water at dinner? You politely excuse yourself from the table, shuffle to the restroom only to find seven women in line in front of you? All of which are doing the same two-step dance, which I fondly like to call the “potty dance.”

Or the feeling that the Sahara Desert has just been unleashed in your mouth when you mistakenly ate a habenero jalapeño thinking it was a persimmon? And the only words you can mutter are, “waaaa,” “waaat,” “water, I need water.”

Or maybe you’re standing over the sink washing a glass, when it shatters in your hand (because you’re so strong) and it slices your thumb clean open. The room starts to spin as you see blood spurting (in all actuality it’s more like a constant drip) from your hand and you have to put your head between your legs to keep from passing out.

Have any of these things ever happened to you? No? Well lucky you. I, on the other hand, have had the chance to experience all three scenarios. And while my hot pepper experience was much less traumatic than this girl’s, it was still horrible.

So what do these things have in common? In every situation I needed something, and I needed it right then. Not in 10 minutes, not in five minutes, but immediately. It was urgent! In my world it was life and death.

Yeah, I know, I’m a drama queen. But when you feel like life is coming to screeching halt, you want to know that there is someone there who can help you, sympathize and most importantly give you what you need.

At MountainStar Medical Group, we know that when you slice your thumb washing dishes, watch your kid break his arm during a soccer game or witness your child’s first steps/fall onto the coffee table leaving a huge goose egg, you want to be able to get into see a doctor and quickly. Not in 10 minutes, not in five, but now, because in your world time may have just stopped.

For all these reasons, several of our clinics have setup “urgent care,” which means less waiting, cheaper appointments, and a quicker response from a physician.

With just a quick phone call to one of our clinics, we will fit you in that day or send you to a sister clinic that can make sure you are seen, stitched, fixed and/or bandaged up in no time!
