Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
With the rising cost of health care in recent years, more people are worried about affording urgent care for themselves and their families. Conversely, the few low-cost urgent care centers available are often questionable in terms of quality of care. Rarely are low cost and high quality aligned when selecting a treatments center. Prime Urgent Care, which is based in the Houston metropolitan area, wants to be the exception. To address this medical need, Prime Urgent Care has announced a new low-cost treatment option, which does not sacrifice top-tier service.
Patients are not required to set up an appointment. They are able to walk-in to Prime Urgent Care in the case of a medical emergency. The center has a staff of board-certified physicians and qualified medical professionals consistently on-hand. The center's staff can treat a vast array of ailments, which include dehydration, lacerations, the flu, ear and sinus infections, allergies, bronchitis, pneumonia, and injuries from minor motor vehicle accidents.
Prime Urgent Care operates on a sliding scale, which means it charges each patient for medical services based on his or her income. Thus this option is more convenient for people, especially those who do not have medical insurance or make a lot of money. Even with those who have insurance, they may not need to pay out of pocket—depending on the type of coverage they have. Some insured people can get treatment without paying a dime, since their insurance company pays for such services. Also, Prime Urgent Care has state-of-the-art x-ray technology with digital radiography—provided at a low cost and done right away without a wait.
Urgent care facilities like Prime Urgent Care have several advantages over hospitals or traditional doctors' offices. While general practitioners or specialists are not always accessible—especially during the weekends or holidays—the ones at Prime Urgent Care are always around. Also, patients don't need to wait for hours, days or weeks to see a doctor, or worry about the high costs that emergency care services incur. At Prime Urgent Care, the medical professionals work hard to ensure that the patients are treated and discharged quickly and efficiently.
