Urgent Clinic and Medical Clinic in Massapequa, NY

Gone are those days when visiting the emergency room was the only way to get necessary medical care when the doctor was not available. People without insurance were also forced to visit emergency clinic as they could not afford to get regular medical care from the physicians. But today with the availability of medical clinics, don’t panic when a loved one of ours is down with high fever or grievously wounded, especially when our home physician is not available at that moment. What we should do next is to immediately take the person concerned to a medical or emergency clinic depending on the injury or illness, so that can get the medical attention as fast as possible. Medical clinic is a relatively affordable alternative to going to the emergency clinic when we have an urgent, but not life-threatening illness or injury.  We, Promptcare MD are a full-time service clinic operating 7 days a week in Amityville, Farmingdale, Levittown, Lindenhurst, Massapequa, Melville and West Babylon to provide after-hours medical care for life’s unexpected happenings. If there is no doctor available in the locality, then Promptcare MD would be the best place to get tests done like- blood tests, immunizations as well as other services for which we need to stay healthy.
