• The Advantages Of Seeking Help At An Urgent Care

    on Dec 6th, 2018

When you or a family member gets injured or sick outside of your normal doctor’s office hours, or if your doctor doesn’t have time to squeeze you into their schedule, don’t rush to the Emergency Room (ER). The doctors and staff at Rose Urgent Care are ready to treat and resolve minor emergencies quickly and efficiently. Urgent care centers are designed to give you quick, professional, supportive care without the expense and long wait of an ER.

Here are a few of the advantages of urgent care:

1. You are seen more quickly.

Hospital emergency rooms serve large communities, prioritize patients based on life-threatening conditions, and can be backed up for hours. Rose Urgent Care centers handle a much lighter patient load and offer quick care to the women, men, and children who walk in the door.

You also don’t have to waste a lot of time filling out unnecessary forms and paperwork. Our intake system is quick and streamlined, so you and your family get the care you need as soon as possible. If you’ve been treated at Rose Urgent Care & Family Practice before, your records are already in our computer system, ready for access.

2. Your doctor has time for you.

An urgent care center like Rose Urgent Care is connected to a family practice, so our doctors are trained to take their time, making sure you get the care you need and that all of your questions are answered. We believe in a holistic approach to medicine that considers you as an active partner in your health and in your family’s health, too.

3. You don’t need an appointment.

Our urgent care hours are convenient for working people and for families on the go. You can walk in during normal business hours without an appointment, even if you’ve never been treated at our centers before.

Our Vancouver office is open from 8 am to 7 pm Mondays to Fridays, and from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturdays, excluding major holidays. Our Battle Ground office is open from 8 am to 7 pm Mondays to Fridays, excluding major holidays.

4. Test results are available while you wait.

Rose Urgent Care is outfitted with state-of-the-art diagnostics right on the premises. Your Rose Urgent Care team member can perform X-rays, ultrasounds, and other tests right after you see your doctor. Your results are ready quickly, so you get the diagnosis and treatment you need as soon as possible.

5. Prices are reasonable.

Emergency rooms are connected to hospitals and therefore have the higher expenses associated with major institutions. Your bill from Rose Urgent Care is equivalent to a bill you’d get from your family doctor. We also accept most types of major medical insurance to further defray your costs.

An urgent care center is not appropriate for life-threatening emergencies and cannot treat a severe injury. If you have chest pain, trouble breathing, a head injury that causes confusion, or symptoms of a stroke, call 911, or go to your local Emergency Room right away.

If you or a family member have a minor injury or suffered an accident that requires quick, but not emergency treatment, call or visit Rose Urgent Care. You can phone our friendly office staff or just drop in during business hours.
