MedRite Urgent Care – Meeting the Need for Urgent Care Clinics in Manhattan
Urgent care clinics are becoming an increasingly important part of the healthcare continuum. Even so, the options in Manhattan are still somewhat limited. When faced with an injury or illness that requires immediate medical attention (but is not life threatening), many New Yorkers are forced to rely on busy and expensive hospital emergency rooms when their regular physicians are unavailable. And, NYC visitors who become ill or injured while far from home may find themselves in the stressful and uncertain situation of not knowing where to turn for medical assistance. Founded in 2010 as one of only two urgent care centers in Manhattan, MedRite is changing all of that.
Urgent care clinics like MedRite can address healthcare issues that are not considered to be true emergencies, but still require medical attention within 24 hours. Some common examples include:
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Moderate back pain
- Mild to moderate asthma symptoms
- Cuts and lacerations
- Eye irritation and redness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Diarrhea and dehydration
- Severe sore throats
- Minor broken bones and fractures
- Skin rashes and other allergic reactions
- Urinary tract infections
- Diagnostic services, including X-rays and lab tests
During the days and hours that primary care physicians’ offices are closed (and even when they’re not), urgent care clinics provide convenient access to quality healthcare. At MedRite, our three offices in Manhattan are open early in the morning, and we’re available until late in the evening. At our walk-in clinic, you don’t need a referral or even an appointment to consult with a board-certified physician. Come in and receive the personalized medical attention you need and deserve – at a time that works for you.
When a non-life-threatening injury or illness strikes, just walk right into MedRite. Our professional and friendly staff will diagnose and treat your condition, and get you back on your way as quickly as possible. Save time. Feel better. Visit MedRite Urgent Care today.
