A Shout Out of Thanks to Medella Urgent Care

 

Years ago, urgent care or 24-hour clinics were something I would not have considered.  When I did try one in Delray for my bronchitis, I opened the door, took one look at the waiting room, and walked out. 

 

It was full of...well...sick people. Most of them had colds at the very least, and I knew that if I went in, I’d probably walk out even worse.

When I moved back to Houston and was still on the search for a Primary Care Physician, I got bronchitis again and decided to try an Urgent Care Facility. I did some research and Medalla Urgent Care had high marks from the Internet and my local Nextdoor app. 

 

This week my bronchitis returned for its annual visit and my primary care doctor suggested I try an urgent care facility because they cannot see patients with upper respiratory illnesses because of COVID. 

 

And once again, Medella Urgent Care came through. With COVID, they have virtual consultations or you can go to one of their facilities. (they have two)

 

I was able to get an appointment that same morning. Because of the virus, I waited in my car for a PA (Physician’s Assistant) to come out to a car. Everything that needed to be done was done curbside, including a test for COVID since my issue was upper respiratory. 

 

Always call 911 for critical emergencies but if your own doctor cannot see you, check out your local Urgent Care facility.  

 

Thank you for your excellent care and service!

Kathy I find it amazing that a primary care doctor would suggest you go to:

"an urgent care facility because they cannot see patients with upper respiratory illnesses because of COVID."

If they are not their to treat their patients for all illnesses, what are they their for?

My primary isn't seeing patients in the office if they have respiratory symptoms either...unless you have a negative Covid test first and that is only good for 36 hours. Sometimes the test results can actually take that long, making it useless.

 Urgent care, under my insurance,  costs much more out of pocket than if I go to my primary. So frustrating!

Kathy Streib  I find it very strange that our primary care Doctors will not see us and tell us to go to Urgent Care where they really do not know our medical history. I am glad that this Urgent Care helped you with your Bronchitis. I do think this is becoming a problem when our own primary Dr's will only speak to us on the telephone. Thankfully there was an Urgent Care in Medella to help

Hi Donald Urschalitz already on the mend!  Thank you. 

Grant Schneider I did a lot of review reading before I called them. It was worth it. 

Wayne Martin If needed they take people into the clinic but thankfully it wasn't necessary for me.

Michael Jacobs Thank you. They deserve it. And, so many people read online reviews now. 

Brian England it isn't fun. Now I'm familiar with how I feel when it's on the way so I try to get meds as soon as I can.

Nina Hollander if they were like what I saw the first time i went into one, I'd rather take my chances at home. The waiting room looked like a breeding ground for a host of diseases. 

Roy Kelley I hope that all went well!!!

Thank you Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I feel a lot better!!!!  They are necessary when your own doctor can't fit you in. 

Sharon Lee they are much better than what I'd heard when they first opened up across the states. Great for when you don't need to go to the ER and you don't have a primary care physician who can see you.

Matthew Klinowski, PA I liked the idea that you could wait in your car instead of a crowded waiting room. 

Carol Williams I would definitely go to the ER for anything involving your heart!!!  Or a break, etc. Glad you haven't had to go to the ER!!!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Thank you. I felt very comfortable with the staff and am on the mend. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® the first time I went I booked my appointment online and had no wait!

Rocky Dickerson I was spoiled by my primary care physician in Delray Beach but sometimes you need to see an urgent care facility if your own can't see you. Stay healthy. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD thanks, doing fine! If you do or don't get flu shots, the nurse said they'd already had 2 cases of flu just at that facility.

Hi Kathy:

So sorry to hear about the bronchitis...hope you are on the mend soon. It's good to have an urgent care facility nearby that you trust when needed. Sometimes the ER is NOT the place to be!

Will Hamm Thank you...I am. I will have to say, I've had a lot of soup this week. 

George Souto I was surprised at that too, especially when I'd told them that I'd taken my temperature, and had no fever. I'm calling a new doctor next week. 

Sharon Tara they gave me a COVID test since I was there and had the upper respiratory thing. I opted for the one that takes longer because the quick one is only 85% accurate. It definitely tickled my nose.

Myrl Jeffcoat I've been very lucky...saw my dermatologist, eye doctor, dentist, and primary care for another issue and felt very comfortable. 

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist there's something very reassuring when you walk out of a doctor's office (or in my case, drive away) and you feel like you've been taken care of.

Hannah Williams I think that they're concerned if you have an upper respiratory illness so I suppose I see it. I went to an ENT doctor this week too and glad he had me come in. Also had a CT scan without issues. I wasn't feeling up to par during our ZOOM meeting so glad I got everything taken care of.

Jeff Dowler, CRS I agree, although I know that if you go in and say it's your heart, you get taken care of ASAP!!!

Morning Kathy,

Haven't needed one of those in a long time, in fact I can't recall ever needing to go to one.  Nice shout-out, however.

I'm flummoxed that doctors can't see sick (upper respiratory) patients because of fear of COVID.  Our world is getting beyond repair.  That's what our doctors are for.  SMH.

Thank goodness for urgent care.
