In addition to providing excellent medical care, the MedSpring team strives to create a great experience for patients.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
MedSpring Urgent Care today announced the opening of a new location at 1403 Highway 6 in Sugar Land. This marks the third MedSpring opening in the Houston area since March 2012. All MedSpring locations have doctors on-site from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, including holidays.
MedSpring physicians treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries, from cuts, sprains and broken bones to coughs, allergies and infections, all without the need to make an appointment. All locations have lab and x-ray facilities on-site which allow physicians to provide thorough care in a timely manner. Compared to the national average ER visit of over four hours, MedSpring visits typically last less than an hour. And, while co-pays vary by insurance plan, the typical MedSpring co-pay is $35-$50, compared to $100-$200 for an ER. Additionally, MedSpring co-pays usually cover everything, while ER co-pays typically cover only the facility fee and not additional charges for physicians, labs, x-rays, etc. For those in a high-deductible plan, the savings can be even greater.
"In addition to providing excellent medical care," said Dr. Jon Belsher, MedSpring's Chief Medical Officer, "the MedSpring team strives to create a great experience for patients." MedSpring guests have access to amenities including free snacks and beverages, in-room TVs, free Wi-Fi, and coloring tables for kids.
MedSpring surveys every patient and posts all comments and reviews online -- good or bad -- unless the patient requests otherwise. After thousands of patient reviews, MedSpring averages 4.9 out of 5 stars.
The newest MedSpring in Sugar Land joins two other Houston-area MedSpring locations in Kingwood and at the intersection of Memorial and Kirkwood. For more information on MedSpring, including patient reviews and savings compared to an ER, please visit MedSpring.com.
