The holiday season is officially here, which means so is cold and flu season. No one has time to be sick during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. While being sick seems like an emergency, it may not require a trip to the emergency room. Preferred Urgent Care Katy is there to help with the common cold and flu, and so much more.
“We are a happy medium between an ER and your primary care doctor,” Dr. Ebunlomo, Preferred Urgent Care Chief Executive said. “We do everything your primary care doctor would do and even more without the charge of an emergency room visit.”
Preferred Urgent Care’s mission is to provide outstanding healthcare for the Katy community at an affordable rate and without the wait. With their walk-in policy and online appointment scheduling, patients are seen quickly with no wait time.
“We wanted to offer a solution of an affordable healthcare service without the wait you experience at the ER and without having to wait sometimes weeks to get an appointment with your primary care physician,” Ebunlomo said.
Anything from a cough and a cold to a sprained ankle can be treated at Preferred Urgent Care. Experienced healthcare providers under the supervision of a seasoned medical director serve patients with specialized care and take a holistic approach to treatment.
“When we see a patient, our team looks for what the root cause may be for the patient’s condition,” Ebunlomo said. “We evaluate our patients and discuss their symptoms but also find the root cause that we can address and treat.”
With the staff at Preferred Urgent Care being from the Katy community, a visit feels like a visit to a small town clinic where the staff is personable and knowledgeable about what is going on in the lives of their patients. Their staff understands the challenges and concerns of a parent with a sick child because many of their staff are also parents.
“We believe this helps them connect with parents when they bring in their children to be seen,” Ebunlomo said. “They treat our patients with the same empathy they would want to receive if they were the ones bringing in their sick child. Our people are truly the key to the outstanding care we provide here at Preferred Urgent care.”
Besides receiving personable care, Preferred Urgent Care offers patients a one-stop shop service for x-rays and other diagnostic tests. Instead of receiving a referral to go somewhere else for x-rays or testing, Preferred Urgent Care is able to do most testing onsite.
“We want to make the process as simple as possible for our patients,” Ebunlomo said. “If someone isn’t feeling well, the last thing they want to do is go elsewhere for additional testing.”
Preferred Urgent Care cares about their patients and wants to help them even before they step into their clinic. Their blog and Facebook page provides followers with pertinent health and wellness information to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to certain conditions.
“We try to educate our patients on different health-related issues,” Ebunlomo said. “Especially, if we see something prevalent in the community or relevant to the time of year.”
One of the best ways to stay well this holiday season is to get a flu shot. Preferred Urgent Care can help there as well. They offer a low price of $19.99 for a flu shot. They also accept most major insurance providers, which may cover the flu shot’s cost.
“We encourage everyone who can to get a flu shot,” Ebunlomo said. “It is a great way to keep yourself safe this flu season. Stopping in for a flu shot with us will also give you the chance to meet our staff and see our facilities.”
Preferred Urgent Care has enjoyed serving the Katy community for the past four years. They understand when patients step into their clinic they are looking for a solution and being able to provide an affordable healthcare solution is what they enjoy doing the most.
“The expression of gratitude that comes from patients when they walk out the door or when they write gracious reviews online is the greatest compliment we could ever receive,” Ebunlomo said. “We pride ourselves on those expressions of gratitude.”
