Express Urgent Care: Where to Go
Sometimes you have to make a quick decision about where to go for urgent healthcare – FastMed or an emergency room (ER). If you think you have a life-threatening injury or conditions, dial 9-1-1 and go to the ER immediately. You can use this tool to see which symptoms indicate a hospital visit, but remember it is not a diagnostic tool nor is it an alternative to or to diagnosis or advice from a medical professional. When in doubt, be safe and head for the hospital.
If you decide on express urgent care at FastMed there is an added value – affordability. FastMed Urgent Care accepts most major insurance plans, including Tricare for military families and has a discount program to help manage the cost of healthcare. We’ve also made investments at FastMed that improve our quality of care AND keep our operating expenses low:
- All your health records are digitized. No more filling out paper forms – for you or the medical staff. Digital health records are more efficient, moved around easier, easier to read than handwritten files and reduce the amount of paper use (which is good for the environment!)
- We do laboratory testing right on site. We don’t pay to ship it off to another location and you don’t have to come back a second time to get the results.
- We take and read digital X-rays at each express urgent care location. Easy to store, easy to share with a referral – no extra trip for you just to get an X-ray.
FastMed is committed to delivering express urgent care, focusing on quality of care as our highest priority.
