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