Finding a physician during regular weekdays is not difficult however it is tough to find a physician after clinic hours. Most of the clinics get shut down after 5pm in the evening and it is tough to find a clinic after the regular clinic hours. Emergency room is the only option available to treat the patient after clinic hours. Although there are certain clinics that provide patient walk in service still the patient has to wait for hours to consult the doctor.
It will be not only frustrating but will be life threatning for patients who needs immediate medical attention like the one suffering from heart attack, diarrhoea, respiratory problems, etc. Phoenix emergency room is available even after clinic hours and the doctor arrives at your home with just a phone call.
Limited number of clinics will be only available till 7pm however they will attend only emergency patients who are in critical condition. Emergency rooms are always busy and with the arrival of new patients in critical condition you’ll need to wait for long time to treat for simple diseases like fever, stomach pain, cough, etc. Needless to say, emergency rooms are usually expensive than the regular clinics. If you are from an economically middle class family or if you do not have proper insurance coverage then ER rooms will not be the best choice. As ER rooms are crowded always, it will be difficult for kids and terminally ill patients to wait for long time.
Emergency room Scottsdale are best for persons suffering from breathing problems, profuse bleeding, severe chest pain, etc. There is a great difference between an emergency room and a regular clinic, when a patient enters the ER, trained professionals like nurse or paramedic persons attend them immediately. They make a list of all the symptoms and vital signs.
For instance, if a patient arrives at 10 am at Paradise Valley urgent care with severe chest pain along with high blood pressure then the patient will be taken to the treatment area and a doctor will attend them and start the treatment immediately. Even if the rooms are full with other patients suffering from throat pain or stomach ache, the patient with chest pain will be given priority. Kids or old aged persons, no one likes to wait for long time in an emergency room for long time.
Walk-in-Clinics are best for treating regular diseases and they usually cover insurance however these clinics do not have modern equipments to deal with medical emergency condition.
