Patient Services

When your doctor’s office is closed and the ER is packed to the gills, turn to CareWell Urgent Care for treatments as quick as they are affordable.
Though you might’ve gone to the ER all the time as a kid, there’s a faster, easier and less expensive option nowadays: CareWell Urgent Care.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got a nagging rash, a sore back, a sprained ankle or anything in between: When you’re in pain, you want to see a doctor as fast as possible. In this age of health care, there’s no shortage of qualified professionals that can give you exactly what you need. However, the trick is not getting caught in the long lines and busy emergency departments that catch so many otherwise healthy people in their nets.

Save the ER for emergencies only
When your life is in danger, the ER is the place to go. In all other situations where you’re in pain but nothing has been seriously injured, ERs can seem like the least helpful places in the world. In fact, while most hospitals have gotten better at sending nurses and physicians out to make first contact with patients when they enter the ER, it still takes more than two hours in most states to send an individual home.

This means that even though you get seen by a doctor and shown into a room at the ER, you might be left there while he or she goes to take care of somebody else. Sure, you’ve been processed and checked out by a professional, but if you’re still in pain and waiting for help, what’s the point?

Urgent care is the future of neighborhood health
The age of the house call might be over, but urgent care gives patients the next best thing. Whether you’ve just sprained your ankle or you’re sick of putting up with a nagging cold, a trip to your local CareWell urgent care center is like having a doctor in your backyard.

At most centers, you’ll be seen by a clinician in as little as 15 minutes. Because urgent care centers can manage the influx of patients better than ERs, this also means that you won’t be left alone in an examination room for hours as your doctor goes to work on someone else. While you’re with CareWell, you’re not competing for medical attention.

Here’s just a small list of every ailment CareWell can help you with:

  • Bug bites and stings
  • Bone breaks
  • Common colds
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Allergic reactions

  • Joint pain
  • Muscle soreness.

Remember CareWell next time you need help
In times of need, people will turn to whatever they think can help.

That’s why you need to make the change to CareWell urgent care centers for all your minor to moderate injury needs. Don’t get stuck in a never­ending ER loop.
