Why is it needed?
In addition to Treatment of common illnesses, patients still require care for surprising, but non-life threatening conditions such as colds, flu, sore throats, fever, diarrhea, upper respiratory symptoms, and earaches, minor burns, allergic reactions, Arthritis/Gout, Fracture care, Foreign Body Removal, Laceration repair, Minor eye injuries, Sprains, strains and similar conditions.
Normally, these treatments will have to wait until your family doctor can see you, or you can head to the Emergency Room for expensive co-pay and possibly longer waits than necessary. With our commitment and new care concept, you just walk in to one of our clinics and you see a doctor to immediately address your symptoms. You will get an answer right there and then on whether you need more care, e.g. see a specialist, get admitted to the hospital, or just take a prescription and rest. You can always go back and see your doctor, just to update him on your new medication or for a follow up visit.
With this concept, your medical conditions will not need to fester until your Doctor is open nor do you need to shell out expensive co-pay at the emergency room, or wait while others with life threatening illnesses are treated.
