What is Lamoille Health Express Care and when should I use it?
With so many different care options available, sometimes it can be hard to figure out which is best for the symptoms you or someone in your family is experiencing.
The terms “express care,” “convenient care,” and “urgent care” are often used interchangeably. This type of service is basically the same as primary care but without scheduling a dedicated appointment days in advance. The care is meant to address common issues that recently popped up, which are known as “acute” conditions.
With both walk-in and call-ahead options, Lamoille Health Express Care is best for mild illnesses and minor injuries. Cold and flu symptoms and upset stomachs are some of the top acute concerns we treat.
Our dedicated doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are available to offer the high-quality whole-person care that Lamoille Health Partners is known for. If your condition requires care after your Express Care visit, we can help you schedule the follow-up you need to stay healthy.
Sometimes, the emergency room (ER) can become the first thought when someone becomes ill with a minor acute condition but wants to get care the same day. In fact, research has found an estimated 13 to 27 percent of ER visits could be managed with regular office visits, saving $4.4 billion annually, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
For minor health concerns, Lamoille Health Express Care can be your convenient, affordable solution for same-day care. Call ahead for Lamoille Health Express Care – now open in Morrisville and Stowe.
