Do you have a medical emergency or an after-hours emergency? For comprehensive, compassionate care for emergencies or after hours, instead of waiting hours at the emergency room, come to NAG Clinics. NAG Clinics boasts after hours and urgent care facilities at both of their locations in Texas City and Pasadena, Texas. Come in any time Monday through Friday from 5 am to 8 pm, and Sunday from 12 pm to 4 pm for same-day care.
Centers that provide after-hours care or urgent care can treat those ailments and injuries that can’t wait until the morning, but don’t require a hospital visit. Examples of these include:
If you’ve been shot, are having chest pains, have suffered a major head injury, have lost consciousness, have a fever with a rash, or are generally experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go to the emergency room.
First, a visit to the emergency room can cost thousands of dollars. For that expense, you often have to wait hours to be seen by a doctor. In contrast, when you visit after hours care, you’re usually seen in less than an hour. If you call ahead, you can usually book an appointment within that same amount of time. Also, after hours care is much less expensive than the emergency room.
Note that sometimes you should go to the emergency room, rather than urgent care, despite its benefits. An emergency room is better equipped to handle a life-threatening emergency.
If you’re visiting an after-hours urgent care clinic, bring the following items with you:
Be prepared to describe your symptoms in detail. Resist the urge to downplay your pain. Your doctor can’t diagnose you accurately if they don’t know all the facts.
If you require after-hours care or urgent care, but you don’t want to go to the emergency room, stop into your nearest NAG Clinics location for swift and effective care. To book an appointment ahead of time, call or use the online booking tool.
