What is an urgent care clinic?

What do you do if you are ill and your primary doctor’s office is closed or you don’t have enough time during thework day to schedule an appointment? Consider visiting an urgent care clinic.

An urgent care clinic specializes in the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries for patients of all ages. It is a convenient alternative when you cannot get a timely appointment with your primary care doctor or you don’t want to wait hours in an emergency room. Utilizing an urgent care clinic like Velocity Care allows you to receive immediate care, save money and be out the door before you know it.

A growing trend

Too often in the past, families were spending precious time at the ER for non-life-threatening illnesses after other doctors’ offices were closed or because they couldn’t get a simple appointment with their primary care doctors. Urgent care clinics can provide your family with the benefit of being seen by ER doctors without the ER wait.

The urgent care movement began as a way to solve the immediate need for medical attention and continues to gain in popularity.

Most doctor’s offices have limited hours during the week and are closed on the weekends, which makes it difficult for people with busy lives and demanding schedules to arrange appointments. Urgent care clinics often have non-traditional hours. With Velocity Care’s new hours of operation, its staff is now available seven days a week.

Insurance

Not only did families once waste precious time, but money, too, as ER visits can be expensive. At Velocity Care, we care about saving our patients time and money. We offer our patients competitive prices and always inform them of the cost before we proceed. Velocity Care also accepts most insurance plans, including:
