doctor_visit_3When visiting an urgent care provider, it’s important to be able to express your symptoms and concerns clearly in order to receive the best care possible.

Here are a few tips to help you or a loved one prepare for an urgent care visit:

  • Write out all your symptoms prior to your visit; it will work to your benefit to inform the physician everything you are experiencing
  • Make a list of all current prescriptions and supplements that you take regularly
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up! Many patients feel nervous in asking questions about their prescriptions or expressing concerns over a diagnosis

A bit of research, organization, and planning in preparation for your next trip to an urgent care provider can go a long way to make the difference in your health care experience. Centra Care provides flexible hours, physicians on-site, and accepts most insurances. The only thing left to do is to walk in when you need urgent medical care.
