Urgent Clinic Offering Fast and Reliable Medical Treatment in Manhattan

Urgent Clinic ManhattanVisiting an urgent clinic is becoming an increasingly popular choice for people who need prompt medical attention but don’t have time to schedule an appointment in advance, and also don’t need the extensive emergency services available in a hospital ER. In these situations, MedRite Urgent Care in Manhattan is a perfect choice. But, what’s the difference between a primary care physician’s office, an ER, and an urgent clinic like MedRite?

Most primary care doctors see patients by appointment only. In some cases, an appointment must be reserved several days, weeks, or even months in advance. While this arrangement works well for routine check-ups, prescription refills, and monitoring chronic health issues, it does not allow opportunities to receive immediate medical attention for health issues that can’t wait for an appointment. So, where do you go?

Save the ER for True Emergencies

In the not-so-distant past, a hospital emergency room was the only option for receiving immediate medical attention—even in nonemergency situations. But, the price of this health care option was—and continues to be—extremely high. For instance, due to multiple factors, such as a reduction in the number of traditional emergency rooms nationwide and the skyrocketing cost of health care in general, you may end up waiting for hours on an ER triage list and paying an exorbitant bill just to receive basic sore throat treatment.

Under certain circumstances, an urgent clinic is a preferable alternative to an ER. At MedRite, you can benefit from the “no-appointment” convenience of the ER while also receiving much faster service at a fraction of the cost. Some conditions that we commonly treat at our urgent clinic include colds, flu, sinus infections, minor burns, rashes, ear and eye infections, mild allergic reactions, wounds, animal bites, urinary tract infections, sprains, strains, and minor fractures.

MedRite is an urgent clinic that offers many of the same services as an ER, such as on-site X-rays and lab testing, as well as many of the same services offered by a primary care physician’s office, such as school and sports physicals, flu shots, and STD testing. As such, for individuals who are facing nonemergency health issues, our practice is the best of both worlds.
