Urgent Care MD = Best Cash Prices in New Orleans

When it comes to health care, there is a lot of talk about how to pay for it.

Before you start fumbling for your deeply buried insurance cards, Urgent Care MD would like to make things nice and easy for you.

Whether you’re headed to our Lakeview or Mid-City location, UCMD offers the best urgent care cash prices in New Orleans.

UCMD has some of the best cash prices in NOLA!

No matter what your emergency, $99 is all it takes to see one of our emergency room trained doctors or technicians. Also, because Urgent Care MD is founded by Veterans, we offer a special $79 rate for those who have served our country.

Why pay cash?

Maybe the insurance you carry has a large deductible or a really small network? Also, it’s just easier to pay a cash price and not worry about insurance junk mail later.

So, once again, Urgent Care MD’s cash prices are…

$99 or, if you are a veteran, $79

Not feeling well? Come see us. We’ll take care of you, and your pocketbook.

Spring Forward New Orleans! (Just Remember to Watch Your Step)

Spring has arrived in New Orleans, watch your step!

Spring has arrived in New Orleans, watch your step!

Finally!

This weekend, New Orleans and the rest of the country will be springing forward.

Sunday, March 8th at 2am, set your clocks ahead one full hour. This wonderful event is a sign to most that it is time to shake off the cold and find fun ways to get outside to enjoy the extra hour of daylight.

This means thoughts of walking around City Park, bike rides by Lake Ponchartrain, and Jazz Fest, fill our heads. As New Orleanians start to head outside more, the risk of injury goes up exponentially. Taking a jog along the St. Charles streetcar line can be an amazing experience, that is if you survive the cracked sidewalks, construction pits, and terrible New Orleans’ drivers! In addition to slips, falls, and accidents, getting active again after hibernating inside for a few months can bring its own set of problems.

Getting your body ready for an outdoor activity is just as important as making sure your shoes are tied tightly.

“Warming up before exercising is one of the best ways to help avoid a nasty surprise” says Urgent Care MD’s Dr. Patrick Dennis. Dr. Dennis adds, “taking a few minutes to stretch, especially after a few months of inactivity, can help to make sure your body is ready to be active.”

According to the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, a few examples of warm up activities are:

  • To warm up for a brisk walk, walk slowly for five to 10 minutes.
  • To warm up for a run, walk briskly for five to 10 minutes.
  • To warm up for swimming, swim slowly at first and then pick up the tempo as you’re able.

Hopefully, getting your blood flowing before heading outside to have fun, will help you to prevent any down time this spring.

Just in case… uur friendly, emergency room trained, medical staff are able to treat most injuries quickly and efficiently. Plus, having all the necessary medical equipment on hand (like on-site x-rays), ensures that Urgent Care MD is able to take care of you and your family.

So, spring forward New Orleans!

Just remember that you might want to stretch first 😉
