Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between CPAUC and my current PCP?
What makes us different is the fact that we offer both urgent care AND primary care, where you can establish care with us on a routine basis just like any other primary care provider (or PCP). Even if you have yet to establish with us as your PCP, patients are more than welcome to utilize our urgent care services too. Your primary doctor plays a very important part in your long-term health.
PCPs know your medical history and the conditions you’ve suffered from. They have access to your medical records and can therefore come to more educated conclusions when you come to them with symptoms. This is particularly important when managing chronic conditions. PCPs can be your home base for illness or chronic condition management, and can advise you on the next step based on everything you’ve already tried.
Urgent care clinics handle basically the same conditions as a primary doctor’s clinic. When you’re not feeling well. The times you need basic shots (like the flu shot) or stitches. To get your prescriptions renewed. When you need tests done (lab tests, strep tests).
What's the difference between urgent care and the ER?
(If you feel you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please visit your closest Emergency Room)
Urgent care clinics like Comprehensive Primary & Urgent Care are here to support patients going through urgent medical conditions. We don’t deal with life threatening conditions – that’s what the ER is for – but we do help patients who can’t wait weeks or months for a family doctor appointment.
See our services for how we can help you and your family and to see the minor conditions we treat.
Is Urgent Care Cheaper than going to the Emergency Room?
Financial Considerations should not dissuade you from going directly to the emergency room if you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency.
An average visit to Comprehensive Primary & Urgent Care is between $75 – $125. Often times urgent care is less expensive than going to the emergency room due to the fact that urgent care facilities like Comprehensive Primary & Urgent Care deal with less serious medical conditions compared to the ER. But when you or a loved one are feeling sick, has a broken limb, or need to renew a prescription, we will certainly be the better option and significantly cheaper than the ER as long as you are NOT experiencing a potentially life-threatening emergency. In that case, please visit your local Emergency Room as soon as possible.
Does CPAUC Take Insurance?
Absolutely, we work with most major insurance providers. Even if we are considered out of network with your insurance coverage, we will be happy to supply you with all the necessary paperwork for you to file for reimbursement from your insurance company.
