Emergencies require seeing a doctor for quick medical treatment. In spite of that, you are probably well aware that if you go to a hospital emergency room that you may wait for many hours before a doctor actually sees you. A good alternative is to visit a local urgent care center, where you will be seen and treated quickly.
Urgent care centers, such as the Silver Star Urgent Care centers in the Long Island area, can handle most any medical problem and emergency. This would include such conditions as broken bones, cuts, the flu and cuts, scrapes and colds, burns, sprains, and most everything else.
The only thing that can not be handled at a local urgent care center is a life-threatening emergency. For that, you should go to an ER because they are better equipped for that level of emergency.
All Ages Welcome
The Silver Star Urgent Care center treats people of all ages. In addition to adults, we have specialists who provide care for children and infants, and others who provide geriatric care. Everyone gets treated with respect and care, and will receive expert treatment.
The correct treatment requires that a correct diagnosis be given. Some long-term treatments are also available, such as for asthma.
We also can provide physical exams for different needs. This includes physical exams for work, a DOT physical, physicals for the Green Card, the Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, and TLC.
Urgent care centers have several medical staff that are trained and experienced in handling many types of medical situations. Some of them have worked in hospital emergency rooms, and they all are highly trained. Each of them is Board-certified, and will give you the best of care.
Instead of using the local hospital’s emergency room, which is going to be very expensive, you will save money by going to the local urgent care center. In addition to the fast service, you can also expect to pay about half as much, enabling you to use that hard-earned money on something else. We accept most health insurance plans.
Whenever medical care is needed, all you need to do is walk-in. You do not need an appointment, and you will be treated just as if you did have one. You can also expect to be seen by a doctor quickly, and treated professionally.
If you work, or if your children are in school, you can visit our urgent care center in the evening. This makes it convenient for you. We are open every day– seven days a week– from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm.
