AfterOurs Urgent Care clinics receive a large amount of patient referrals from family practice doctors. Unlike other urgent care providers, our medical clinics support and augment the services available from conventional family medical practices. Referrals from primary care doctors actually result in about 25% of the patients that visit our medical clinics. By keeping hours on weekends and evenings, we can offer urgent healthcare services when most family medical offices are closed. By partnering with AfterOurs, family doctors are able to provide a more comprehensive, considerate and effective level of care.
AfterOurs complements family doctors offices.
AfterOurs is not in competition with these family doctors, but instead offers urgent care services that complement the family medical practice. We do not prescribe medication and will not manage the treatment of diabetes. AfterOurs does not offer regular maintenance services such as vaccinations, annual physicals, or other preventative-type medical care. Also, we will not provide follow-up care at our urgent care clinics unless requested by the primary physician. AfterOurs is intended as an enhancement of the family medical practice and we are not in direct competition with the family doctors who refer patients.
This often means a referral to a local family physician who is expert in providing primary healthcare services for children, adults and families. This may also mean that we send a patient directly to the emergency room if their condition threatens life or limb. The bottom line is that at AfterOurs, we are committed to the health of our patients and will recommend the appropriate medical services even if they are not provided through AfterOurs Urgent Care clinics. This is why we generate many patient leads for primary care providers.
