Healthline Medical Group has been providing quality Urgent Care services to the community since 1984. Our experienced medical staff consists of general internal medicine and board certified family physicians, certified physicians assistants and specialists. Our support staff is multilingual.
We provide quality medical treatment for your unexpected illnesses and injuries in a more timely and cost effective manner than the emergency room. Most Urgent Care co-payments are less than ER co-payments. Medical service fees are significantly less than the ER. Our extended hours of operation allow us to offer care in a more convenient manner.
We offer Urgent Care services on a walk-in basis for adults and adolescents (10 years of age and older). If admission to a hospital is required, we can facilitate the transfer.
WHEN TO GO TO AN URGENT CARE CENTER VS. THE EMERGENCY ROOM:
If you encounter an unexpected urgent medical need, that is not life threatening, consider visiting Healthline Urgent Care. In most situations, you can save time and money by going to our Urgent Care instead of an ER.
When you have a fever, you shouldn’t have to sweat it out in the ER where you may have to wait hours and spend hundreds of dollars for your care. In our Urgent Care, with our extended hours of operation, we can accommodate you much more quickly and in a less stressful and cost effective manner.
Healthline Medical Group has added two digital technologies to help reduce cost and shorten your office visit waiting time: 1.NextPen 2.Digital X-rays
NextPen: Healthline Medical Group has recently implemented the use of digital pens referred to as the NextPen. This allows for a much more efficient transfer of the patient’s history and data into our electronic health record system via an electronic means.
Reduce radiation exposure to the patient and therefore safer.
Faster Processing Time, no x-ray film development
Electronic transfer of image data to the radiologist and/or consultant
CD-ROM with digital image data can be given to the patient eliminating unnecessary duplication of X-rays.
