You never know what will happen. That’s life! When I was 37 weeks pregnant with my son, Des, Scarlet got her hand stuck in the minivan door! Luckily it was just bruised, but we didn’t know that at first and needed a fast and caring option! And I’ll never forget when she had a horrible virus when I was on the way to my little sister’s bridal shower in New Jersey, and I had to turn the car right back around and meet up with my husband and daughter. Childhood can be filled with strains and sprains and stomachaches and head lice. That’s why we need such options for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses.
We live in Massachusetts but are close to both Connecticut and Vermont, so we have great options. My closest location is the PhysicianOneUrgent Care Glasonbury center. I love knowing that a great alternative to the Emergency Room is close to my home. And the wide range of offerings helps all 4 members of my family. Let’s talk more about PhysicianOne Urgent Care!
It was founded in 2008 in Southbury, Connecticut by three Emergency Room doctors. They saw a need for better access to non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. In fact, Dr. Jeannie Kenkare – a co-founder – remains their Chief Medical Officer today! She had treated many patients in the ER for conditions that she felt could be treated outside the ER at a fraction of the cost, and in much less time than it would take to be treated in the ER. And that’s how PhysicianOne Urgent Care came to be – providing high-quality, convenient, and accessible healthcare – with extended hours that fit the patient’s schedule.
These centers are the best alternative to the Emergency Room for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses for all ages – from babies to the elderly. Also, they offer X-ray, lab, IV services, and this is important for this time of year – flu shots – every day. There’s no appointment necessary, and almost all insurances are accepted. Talk about helping families like mine!
Also, PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers online check-in to help patients feel better faster, and when it works for their schedule. And right now they’re running a promotion for $35 youth sports physicals until September 15th! Don’t miss it!
Did you know that the average ER visit can cost at least $750 for treatment – after the initial co-pay – and this exact same treatment at PhysicianOne Urgent Care is closer to $150? They are open 365 days per year, including Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day, but they are not 24 hours. If you’re wondering whether you can be treated at your local PhysicianOne Urgent Care center, you can call 855-349-2828. This is a great alternative to visiting an Emergency Room.
What do I love about PhysicianOne Urgent Care?
Really, it’s about having that alternative to Emergency Rooms for situations you want care for, but maybe they’re not as urgent as situations that would require a hospital. I think having the flu shot there is AWESOME, and also the fact that youth sports physicals are $35 until September 15th! We definitely have to take advantage of this because I’ve got kids in sports! I absolutely love the perks, and the peace of mind I have in having this option so close to home. It’s a parenting win.
