The Perfect Health Care Niche
By staffing AllBetterCare with emergency medicine specialty trained, board certified physicians, we can handle a wide spectrum of medical conditions that overlap with office based as well as emergency department care.
Primary care is essential for monitoring and treatment of chronic conditions, maintaining wellness and modifying risk factors. But access to illness or injury evaluation / treatment is limited, and in most cases by appointment only… at a time convenient to them, not to you. And many conditions are just too acute for management in a primary care office settings.
Although our physicians are Emergency Medicine trained; we are NOT an emergency department and are not equipped to handle severe medical emergencies. Please use judgement in choosing AllBetterCare for appropriate medical conditions and symptoms.
When should you go to the Emergency Room?
Can I come to AllBetterCare as my family doctor?
We provide treatment of medical needs that you identify as needing attention as soon as possible. We are flattered that we get asked this question regularly, but we do not take the place of primary care. Everyone needs a primary care provider for health maintenance, preventive care and chronic disease monitoring. If your family doctor is unavailable or inappropriate for your time-sensitive medical needs, we are there for you every day of the week.
If you don’t have a family doctor or primary care physician and need one for ongoing care, we will provide you with a list of local physicians who are accepting new patients.
What is a Retail Clinic?
Retail clinics are staffed by Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants without a licensed physician on site. They are designed to treat minor self-diagnosed symptoms. The closest regional retail clinics list their visit cost at $79-$89. This is only a few dollars less expensive than Emergency Physician specialist services provided at AllBetterCare. Lower level, non-physician treatment for nearly the same cost as urgent care services makes little sense for most patients.
