AFTER HOUR CLINIC

Though we accept walk-in during afterhours but setting up appointment will prevent unnecessary inconvenience and help us to improve our quality of care.

If you have a non-urgent condition – fever, flu symptoms, allergic reactions, minor cuts, animal bites, bladder infection – your primary care physician’s office is your best bang for buck when it comes to time and cost.

If you have an extreme medical condition – stroke, heart attack, severe burns, electrical shock – the resources and services available at hospital emergency rooms make that a far better choice.

The Annals of Internal Medicine study found that the average cost of an urgent care visit for three common illnesses — middle ear infection, pharyngitis and urinary tract infection — was $155. Other estimates place the average urgent care visit at anywhere from $71 to $125. The bottom line is that an urgent care visit is substantially cheaper than an emergency room visit*.
