Once a child reaches a certain age, he or she may no longer need to visit a pediatrician for medical treatment. It can be difficult for a family to receive the necessary care for members of varying ages without having to visit different locations. In other cases, the condition may not be life-threatening but will need treatment as soon as possible. Waiting a week or two for a doctor to squeeze an appointment in will only allow the condition to get worse. Waiting at a hospital ER can take hours before a patient receives treatment. At Athena Medical Clinic, we can offer families the necessary care in an efficient manner.
The care you need when you need it
With a simple procedure such as a physical not taking much time to perform, primary care physicians who cannot be seen for weeks may not always be ideal for you and your family to wait for. At Athena Medical Clinic, we can provide the physical for families that walk in. No appointment is necessary. If a parent has a child that needs a physical for sports or other forms of treatment, parents can bring their child to our clinic without an appointment. We will do everything in our power to shorten the wait time and help the child receive the care he or she needs as soon as possible.
While other professional practices require patients to schedule an appointment ahead of time, we can treat patients on the same day they walk in. With the shorter wait times, we are an effective and beneficial option for families who need medical services immediately.
We accept most major forms of insurance and offer lower co-pays than hospitals or other practices. We also offer self-pay options for patients who do not have insurance. Since we treat patients of all ages from children to adults, we can treat all family members if necessary. Families may not have to juggle car rides, appointment dates and busy schedules to take members to alternate treatment locations.
We will do everything in our power to treat the patient’s condition and help them continue a healthy lifestyle. For more information or any questions, call our office at (706) 608-4072.
