It’s the moment that every parent dreads: the phone call from the school nurse that your child is sick. Maybe it’s a fever; maybe he or she threw up at school – whatever the case, it’s time to take action. You have to stop what you’re doing – work, errands, the like – and get to school. You have to figure out what’s wrong.
You call your regular clinic and they say there aren’t any appointments until the next day. Your baby is sick, though! You need to see someone. There must be something you can do!
That’s where Alta Health Group’s walk-in clinic in Naples comes in.
For colds and flu, nausea and vomiting, fevers and ear infections – your standard “child-borne” illnesses – you can come in without an appointment and be treated quickly.
If we are your regular primary care clinic – even better! We will keep your records on site so that your doctor will know what is happening with your child’s health.
What are the advantages of our Naples walk-in clinic?
There are more than 15 schools located within a five-mile radius of our walk in clinic in Naples. It means that you are no more than 10 minutes away from getting to us in even the most urgent cases, like a cut or laceration.
Sometimes as parents, we are inclined to do whatever it takes to ensure our child gets back to the health. If our regular doctor is unavailable, we might even consider going to the Emergency Room. But the ER isn’t the most affordable choice. The average cost of visiting walk-in clinics is covered by insurance and comes to roughly $150 per patient, while the average cost of an ER visit is $1,432 and not always covered.
Continuity of care
If Alta Health Group is your primary care provider, it is easy to provide continuity of care; we will give your records to your regular doctor for any follow-up. If Alta Health Group is not your primary care doctor, we will give you the documents you need to follow up with your doctor.
