If your family is busy like ours and you find yourself needing to see a doctor, CareNow Urgent Care makes it easy to get the quick healthcare you need.
CARENOW URGENT CARE
Recently, we had to pay a little visit to urgent care. Weston twisted his ankle at his baseball lesson and when he woke up the next morning, we were worried it was more than just a sprain. Having an urgent care facility nearby that could do an x-ray was wonderful. If your family is as busy as mine, convenient healthcare is a huge priority, especially when something unexpected pops up!
We had planned a busy week full of tons of summer activities only to have it all stopped in its tracks by the need for this x-ray. Finding a place with convenient hours and little to no wait was what I was focusing on.
CareNow is an alternative to the emergency room for issues that aren’t quite that serious. The clinics are also a great option for those times when the doctor’s office is closed, like weekends and evenings, which seem to be my kids’ favorite time to experience injury or illness. There are four key features that make CareNow a great option for families!
1. LOCATIONS NEAR YOU
CareNow Urgent Care has over 100 locations across the country, so there’s a good chance you’ve got one fairly close to you. We’ve got one about 8 miles from our house, which is super convenient. You can find your closest location at CareNow.com.
Knowing where your closest clinic is before you need it is great for peace of mind!
2. HOURS YOU NEED
Many CareNow Urgent Care clinics are open later in the evening and on the weekends. Hours do vary by location, so be sure to check out the hours of the clinic closest to you. I love that the one near us is open on Saturdays. It’s nice knowing we have a place to go if we need it!
3. TREATMENT FOR MINOR INJURIES AND ILLNESS
CareNow treats a wide variety of minor illnesses and injuries. Some of the conditions they treat include:
- Ear Infection
- Pink Eye
- Sore Throat
- Strained Muscle
- and many more!
Need an x-ray, sports physical, flu test, pregnancy test, or other medical tests? Learn more about what CareNow does at CareNow.com.
4. CONVENIENT WEB CHECK-IN
One of the biggest things that worries me when we need quick care is the wait. When one child is hurt or not feeling well, we don’t want to wait long. Whichever child isn’t the patient but has to come along for the ride is usually pretty chill at first, but if the wait drags on, it can get challenging for them to stay patient.
CareNow offers Web Check-In that allows you to check in online to reduce your wait time when you get to the clinic. It’s like saving your spot in line and makes it quicker to get in and get out.
I like being able to wait at home where we’re more comfortable. With Web Check-In, it’s also easy to take advantage of the extended hours. We can check in when it’s convenient for us and get the care we need! Use Web Check-In before your next visit!
Additionally, no appointment is necessary and walk-in patients are always welcome.
Busy parents need peace of mind – I know that from experience. Knowing that we have CareNow in our community when we need it is a huge relief. By offering convenience and a wide variety of healthcare services, it’s a go-to for me as a busy mom when someone in my family is under the weather or dealing with a minor injury!
