Doctor Opens Prompt Care Facility for Kids
The new facility, started by Dr. Alan Getts, opened on Jan. 5 and is open from noon to 10 p.m. daily. It serves children from newborn to 15 years old.
“This will keep kids from going to the ER for non-emergency things like colds and earaches,” said office administrator Danielle Myers.
Myers said Kids Prompt Care works with most insurance companies and doctors.
“We’ll see everybody’s patient,” she said. “It doesn’t matter who their primary care physician is.”
The new facility treated 105 patients from Jan. 5-31, but saw 26 in the first four days of February.
“It seems to be picking up pretty good,” Myers said.
The waiting room and exam rooms are kid friendly. Two of the three exam rooms contain a playhouse, and the waiting room features colorful kids furniture they can play on.
