Being sick or injured is already a hassle. In addition to providing excellent medical care, the MedSpring team strives to create a great experience for patients.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
MedSpring Urgent Care today announced the opening of a new location in Round Rock, its fourth center in the Austin area. On the northwest corner of Gattis School Road and A.W. Grimes Blvd. one mile west of Cedar Ridge High School, this center serves the Round Rock, Georgetown and North Austin communities. Doctors are on-site 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week at all MedSpring locations.
With lab and x-ray equipment on site, MedSpring physicians treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries, from cuts, sprains and broken bones to coughs, allergies and infections. In addition, MedSpring patients and guests have access to amenities including free snacks and beverages, in-room TVs, free Wi-Fi, and coloring tables for kids.
"Being sick or injured is already a hassle," said Dr. Jon Belsher, MedSpring's Chief Medical Officer. "In addition to providing excellent medical care, the MedSpring team strives to create a great experience for patients."
After thousands of patient reviews, MedSpring averages 4.9 out of 5 stars. MedSpring surveys every patient and posts all reviews online -- good or bad -- unless the patient requests otherwise.
Patients typically save several hours and hundreds of dollars when they choose MedSpring over an ER. The national average ER visit is over four hours (even if they advertise low initial wait times), versus an hour or less to complete most MedSpring visits. And while co-pays vary by insurance plan, the typical MedSpring co-pay is $35-$50, compared to $100-$200 for the ER. Additionally, MedSpring co-pays usually cover everything, while ER co-pays typically cover only the facility fee and not additional charges for physicians, x-rays, etc. For those in a high-deductible plan, the savings can be even greater.
The newest MedSpring in Round Rock joins three other Austin area centers in Anderson Mill, Cedar Park and across from The University of Texas. MedSpring will open its fifth Austin-area center on May 7th near the intersection of 38th Street and N. Lamar Blvd. For more information on MedSpring, including patient reviews and savings compared to an ER, please visit http://www.MedSpring.com.
