so today I needed a refill on my antibiotics for my leg and my regular primary care physician is on vacation till next Monday.. my company insurance is recommending going to these Urgent Care places rather than a hospital ER (unless you really need an ER in which case you should call 911). I looked for reviews on Yelp; mostly kids with sinus infections, but NYC 20 somethings have attitudes and feel arrogantly entitled. most of the reviews liked CityMD who is opening up all over the city so I went to the one 8 blocks away. From the time i walked in, it took 10 min to see a doctor trained in the US, interned as an ER specialist. Not Jewish (can't have everything) but was NY Italian (which is close to being Jewish). they took my temp and bp (to determine if i was sick). Getting to see a new doctor in under 3 months here is amazing. Took my medical history, and the info about the meds the doc gave me last week. Decided to change my meds to a more comprehensive combination that cost less for more. then they transmitted my prescriptions to my pharmacy over the internet! Best was when i left: no co-pay or co-insurance! I saw a real US doctor for nothing out of my pocket? Of course CVS is in the stone age and took an hour and a half to fill my 40 pills. Not sure just what these urgent care facilities can handle, but as of now they are on my list of resources since registering with one registers me with all of them. no thanks to obama. now we just need CityDDS to open up.
