When you aren’t feeling well, no one wants to be told that it will be weeks or months before you can see a specialist. Urgent Care centers are well known for treatment of a wide array of ailments, but they can’t help you with many medical specialties including cardiac care and diagnostics.
So what do you do when you need to see a cardiac specialist, and you need to see one sooner rather than later? Finding a qualified cardiac specialist the same day is nearly impossible without spending hours at the emergency room. That’s why Regional Cardiology Consultants created our Cardiac Urgent Care division.
We offer cardiac and vascular same-day appointments for patients throughout the Greater Northeast Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks County regions.
Both new and existing patients are welcome!
One recent study found that the average ER visit costs 50 percent more than what the average American pays for a month’s rent! The average cost of an emergency room visit in 2018 was $1,010 but can cost well over $5,000 for cardiac evaluation.
Patients, whether they are insured or not, usually have no way of knowing how high their ER bills will be until they receive them in the mail. The charges can be substantial and can take many years to pay off.
For non-life-threatening conditions, Urgent Care is substantially less costly with significantly less waiting.
Regional Cardiology Consultants is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive, state of the art, compassionate, cost-effective and timely medical services in the promotion of improved health for the community of the greater Philadelphia, Montgomery & Bucks Counties, and New Jersey areas.
