09 Apr Why Go to Mend Clinic?
Mend Clinic is Salem’s ER alternative. We’re halfway between seeing your regular physician and an emergency room visit. Urgent care clinics are often misunderstood, and some people aren’t sure exactly when they should go to urgent care. A lot of people are also surprised by the array of technologies and medical care available at Mend Clinic. For instance, did you know we have orthopedic specialists on site? That’s not even available at the ER, and you can avoid being referred to an orthopedic specialist when you visit us. We have the experts and the tools necessary on-site to diagnose and treat a variety of injuries, including fractured bones.
Having access to orthopedic specialists is just one perk of Mend Clinic. And visiting urgent care instead of the ER also means shorter lines and waiting times. The ER is flooded with people suffering from a wide range of injuries and you can avoid that by considering alternatives. Overall, urgent care clinics have shorter lines. However, if you want to be seen even faster, you can choose to make an appointment. Whether you walk in or have an appointment, you’ll certainly be seen faster at urgent care.
Lower costs are also a significant perk of urgent care. Although Mend Clinic accepts all major types of insurance, if you’re paying out of pocket, you’ll pay less at urgent care compared to the ER. Plus, if you need follow-up care, you can always see your regular GP to save even more money.
Mend Clinic is conveniently located in downtown Salem and is open seven days per week with ample parking. For most in the area, it’s just as easy to get to Mend Clinic as it is the ER, and parking is usually easier.
