Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Expensive and lengthy - these two words tend to be associated with American medical care. Yet a new trend in clinics appeared in the 1970s that exploded in popularity, and offered a faster, less expensive way to receive care for general, non-life-threatening medical needs. That “trend” has become a mainstay today: Urgent Care.
FastCare, a South Florida urgent care center, announced today that they offer new, improved physical assessments conducted by medical professionals in their Miami urgent care centers, at significantly less cost and more quickly than with a scheduled physician.
Many jobs require a guarantee of physical fitness before hiring, and FastCare aims to make this as convenient as possible for everyone. Urgent care may not be what most people think of first, but FastCare actually provides a surprisingly comprehensive list of physical fitness assessments.
For jobs at the Department of Transportation (DOT), a physical assessment must be obtained every 24 months. This ensures that their workers are staying healthy and safe. FastCare also provides physical evaluations for the FDLE, or Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Fitness, naturally, is very important for people in uniform, and Florida law enforcement is no exception.
FastCare also provides physical checks of the heart and lungs, in the form of spirometry testing for lung strength, function, and integrity, and EKG testing, for heart rhythm and electrical activity.
Miami walk-in clinics do not treat life-threatening conditions. Surgery is also out of the question, as hospitals are the only facilities with the experts and equipment on hand to handle such operations. If patients are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, they should call 911. Urgent care is still effective, safe, and inexpensive for minor conditions, including seasonal flu, colds, strep throat, nausea, pink eye, allergies, infections, and superficial injuries.
Fastcare Miami Beach and Aventura urgent care center is a step down from the traditional emergency room with minimal waiting time. They treat all non-life threatening illnesses and injuries, accept most private insurances and are contracted with all Workers’ Compensation Insurance companies. Due to their direct contracting with most insurance companies, a visit to FastCare will be at lower cost in the form of lower copays and lower charges vs. the emergency room. Fastacre’s main priority is to provide quality medical care in a timely manner for their patients.
As a network of emergency walk in clinics, FastCare Aventura and Miami beach provides flu shots on a seasonal basis and offers preoperative physicals and clearances when patients are required to have one done prior to a surgical procedure.
