Leading a national trend in the Valdosta Georgia area, Airport Clinic offers urgent care as a safe, convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional emergency room visits, saving time and money for residents in North Florida and South Georgia.
The urgent care clinic industry recently has experienced major growth and is increasingly being recognized by patients and the medical community as the best answer to the long waits and high costs of emergency room visits. In fact, in 2009, The Joint Commission began an accreditation program and the Urgent Care Association of America launched a certification program - each establishing strict criteria for recognizing and officially designating outstanding urgent care centers.
While the ER or a primary care physician certainly can handle any of the services that Airport Clinic urgent care clinic offers, you'll see a major difference in the time you'll wait to be treated and in the costs you'll pay. Overuse of America's emergency rooms for treatment of non-emergent medical conditions is a major driver of time and costs. Because ER physicians are obligated to treat patients needing true, emergent care for conditions like heart attacks and major head trauma first, a patient with a non-emergent, urgent care need must wait - an average of nearly four hours according to surveys of emergency departments nationwide. Plus, ERs are very expensive to operate, so big costs are passed down to patients.
By comparison, a new patient visit to Airport Clinic urgent care center starts at $80 and returning patients pay a base of $80 per visit. And because your health won't wait, we offer a walk in center with no appointment necessary. But if you wish to make an appointment, you won’t "get in line ", allowing you to choose a time that's convenient for you.
