Making Use of Urgent Care Facilities

Hi, my name is Margaret Lindsey. My husband and I have four children all under the age of twelve. Our kids are healthy, active little ones who seem to pick the most inopportune times to get hurt or sick. Rarely do they need emergency care during our pediatrician’s business hours. Fortunately for us we have an Urgent Care facility nearby. Some people are leery of making use of Urgent Care services. We have had good experiences, and I am happy to be able to share them with you. We have used our Urgent Care for illnesses such as the flu, bronchitis, ear infections, and sinus infections. We have also used it for sprains and even broken bones. I hope what I have to share will be of help for you and your family.
