Ring in the New Year: Healthier Than Ever

Nov 27, 2016 11:31AM ● Published by Becky Coburn

 

By Dr. Armando Samaniego, Chief Medical Officer, STAT MED Urgent Care 

With winter settling in and family and friends gathering for the holidays, there is something else to remember during your preparations: avoid a visit to the ER. There’s nothing like the added stress of very long waits or missed family time to dampen your holiday spirit and the start of a new year.

Are these familiar holiday memories?

·      Missing holiday dinner because congestion turned into pneumonia

·      Experiencing a deep cut from broken glass washing holiday dinner dishes

·      Spraining or fracturing a bone while working on roof lights

·      Wishing you hadn’t grabbed the falling carving knife

·      Enduring a painful burn from grabbing a stove pot or spilling hot liquid

·      Catching the flu from out of town guests

No one plans for an illness or injury, but did you know that roughly 70% of visits to the ER can be handled at an urgent care like STAT MED Urgent Care? Having worked in Bay Area emergency rooms for many years, I saw patients this time of year endure extended wait times in addition to the expense of a visit to the ER. 

STAT MED is prepared for medical needs requiring more advanced care to basic levels of care, such as stitches, strep tests, or physicals. And STAT MED offers an online check-in option.

This year, remember you have an alternative to going to the ER that offers exceptional care alongside an outstanding experience so you can feel better sooner!

With doctors on-site 7 days a week including holidays, along with x-rays and labs, the attentive team at STAT MED Urgent Care can diagnose and treat whatever is urgent to you. Learn more at statmed.com or by calling 925-234-4447 for our Pleasant Hill location near Sunvalley Mall. Almost all insurance plans are accepted.
