The Doctors' Office Compliment - So happy they were there.

Review by momsey on 2011-05-08
WEST CALDWELL, NEW JERSEY -- Last Saturday night, my son, who is almost 3, was sitting on my lap and somehow ended up poking me in the left eye. He's done it before, but this time was much worse. By 2 am Sunday morning, still in excruciating pain, I realized I was in trouble. I posted on Facebook for advice because I didn't want to go to the ER and didn't really know any other options, but I couldn't stand the pain without being looked at for another whole day. Thankfully, a couple of friends reminded me of a new urgent care place that had opened recently nearby. I looked up the website and found that they opened at 9 am on Sunday morning.

Sunday morning, I walked into The Doctors' Office about 9:10 am. From the receptionist to the medical assistant to the doctor, everyone was very nice and empathetic to my obvious pain. I was diagnosed with a scratched cornea and sent on my way with a prescription for antibiotic drops. I was out of the office before 10 am, having only paid my $10 copay. Within a couple of days, my eye was back to normal.

I was so thankful that they were there on a Sunday morning to save me a trip to the ER. I told them so as well! I just want to make sure others in my area are aware of this great new service.

Glad to hear your eye is better. I've had a scratched cornea before and it's painful. $10 copay? Wow that's a great deal! I pay $50 for Urgent Care

This is a great review, momsey. I am impressed the most with the $10 copay.

I have a similar, but much more expensive experience that parallels yours in a way. My dog had an eye injury on a Sunday. We found an urgent care pet facility, and she was also diagnosed with a scratched cornea.

The staff at this facility was also very friendly and professional. The difference is I paid a LOT more than $10.

I hope people in your area see this review. I'm grew up about 15 miles from it, originally.

These places are hit or miss. You obviously have a hit!.. and it sure beats the ER.

Hope you're better soon.

Oh, trmn8r, your poor doggie. I can tell you, this was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced, so I feel for your dog! But yeah, the ERs for animals sure are pricey!
