At Samaritan Medical Care Center, we are here for all of your urgent (or just nagging) medical conditions, with walk-in care available seven days a week.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, much of our focus has been on providing the testing services needed by our community. In fact, many of you may only know of us as the place you come to get a Covid test. But, that’s not all we do!
All throughout the pandemic, we have been here providing our full spectrum of urgent care services. Whether you need an x-ray, stitches, or other care after an accident, or evaluation and treatment for an illness, we can help you feel better. Not only that, urgent care is a faster and less expensive option than the emergency room. Did you know that as many as 27% of ER visits could be seen at an urgent care clinic? Or, that on average, an urgent care visit costs about 1/3 of the cost of an ER for treating the same exact condition? On top of the cost savings, we will usually have you in and out of our clinic in under an hour.
Lately, as the omicron surge has slowed down, we have begun to see an increase in more standard types of urgent care visits. We have also noticed that many patients are coming in for conditions that they had delayed getting treatment for, such as ingrown toenails, nagging back pain, and minor sprains. Whether due to an inability to get an appointment with their primary care provider or hesitancy to visit urgent care due to fear of exposure to Covid, these delays in care lead to unnecessary discomfort and increased costs for treatment.
