WHAT TO EXPECT
When you are sick or injured, the last thing you need is a long wait at the doctor’s office or emergency room. You deserve quality medical care that’s also convenient. 217 Immediate Care is dedicated to reducing your wait while improving your health. Next time you or a loved one is under the weather, visit an Immediate Care clinic to feel better faster.
217 Medical Center offers professional, state-of-the-art care in a convenient, more affordable family-friendly setting. You’ll find an experienced staff of trained providers and clinical staff here to help you or your loved one.
Times have changed and today hospital emergency rooms are very busy places. They are often understaffed and those patients with a less urgent health complaint, like colds, sore throats, or minor injuries take a back seat. That’s where immediate care centers like 217 Immediate Care come into play. We help bridge the gap between traditional hospital emergency rooms and primary care doctor’s offices by offering walk-in care, providing immediate treatment of urgent, but not life-threatening emergencies.
At 217 Immediate Care, you can see one of our providers without an appointment, just as you would at an ER because we understand that situations requiring medical attention, don’t always occur during business hours.
What you can Expect:
- We make every possible effort to minimize your wait. If emergencies delay us, we will do everything possible to make your wait as comfortable as possible while we provide an estimated time-duration for the wait.
- We always provide an explanation of why tests are ordered and the significance of the findings.
- Our specialist referrals are a reflection of the quality of our medical practice, so we provide only the highest quality referrals.
- We work to provide clarity when you have uncertainty.
217 Immediate Care staff is trained to diagnose and treat most non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. Our experienced healthcare professionals also provide a full array of occupational and industrial medicine services.
Our experienced staff of physicians, physician assistants and medical technicians are passionate about providing an outstanding medical experience, while providing urgent, acute and preventative medical care and providing an atmosphere you can feel comfortable in.
At 217 Immediate Care, our focus is on our patients. In fact, our entire process was developed with you in mind – we want your visits to our walk-in clinic to be as streamlined as possible.
