Speed is of the essence! How many times have we heard that phrase applied to the things we need to do or to get done? The term rat race still applies to most people’s lives as it was when the term was first coined many decades ago. To cope with our need for speed in every aspect of our lives we have developed efficient and fast mass transport systems, fast cars, freeways, fast food, instant everything, and express service on everything. Many people have found a good living providing express laundry and dry cleaning, food delivery, grocery delivery and internet ordering of almost every consumer item imaginable. The same is true of our need to have medical and sometimes dental services in as short a time as possible.
For immediate medical assistance in cases not involving life-threatening injuries or illnesses Birmingham urgent care can be counted on to provide fast and efficient services – way faster than what you may expect from visits to a hospital emergency room. This may sound odd considering emergencies are conditions which require immediate attention, but the burgeoning of our cities has caused emergency room capacities to be strained. There are usually long lines of people waiting to see the doctor at emergency rooms for many hours on average. At a Birmingham urgent care clinic, which may be affiliated with the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine, the wait to see a doctor only takes fifteen minutes on average. The funny thing is, though almost all the people in emergency rooms are in need of immediate medical attention, their injuries or illnesses are not all life-threatening. This means they have the option of avoiding the long lines and going to an urgent care clinic instead.
At urgent care Birmingham AL, patients are not asked to undergo a battery of lab tests as a matter of precaution-induced routine. Patients are only asked to undergo the tests needed to diagnose their conditions, thus cutting treatment time (and cost to the patient) drastically.
You can always rely on an urgent care clinic in Birmingham AL to provide much faster service at a fraction of the cost of an emergency room visit. Unless your condition is life threatening, they offer a more convenient and more affordable alternative.
