It was like a revelation, when I found out what I’d been missing out on for months now, I felt a mix between relief and frustration. It was like obsessing over a missing puzzle piece that you’d been searching for weeks, only to see it fall out of the dust collector when you’re pouring it into the trash after you apparently accidentally vacuumed it up. Not all is lost, things just could have been so much easier the last time I needed to see a doctor with regard to my crazy schedule. It was always my understanding that if you didn’t have a life-threatening injury or illness but you needed medical attention, you could only get it during typical business hours. Typical business hours for a primary care physician are the same hours that the majority of Americans work who have what are generally referred to as, “day jobs”. This obviously creates a scheduling conflict for anyone who needs to see a doctor, but also has work obligations to attend to during a normal business day. Well, apparently someone has solved that problem in this area by opening up the urgent care Scottsdale patient care facility. They’re like a hybrid between a hospital emergency room and a primary care practice, because they have extended hours of operation and can handle almost any concern that would come up in an ER or doctor’s office. The last couple times that I needed to see a doctor, I experienced a whole lot of difficulty when having to rearrange my life in order to free up the time I needed for a doctors appointment. If I would have known about the urgent care Scottsdale, I wouldn’t have had to stress about anything and just been able to take care of things that I needed to at work, then go to the urgent care. They were open until 9 PM every evening so it would have been no problem whatsoever, and I wouldn’t have even broken a sweat trying to fit it into my day. The last time that I needed to see a doctor(before I knew about the urgent care Scottsdale) I upset my boss in the process of trying to get some time off and then missed my bus and was late to my appointment. I ended up having to wait twice as long to be seen by the doctor as I would have, had I arrived on time. Then, I wasn’t able to get back to work before the end of the day, which in turn, upset my boss again. I’ve been trying to make up for that incident ever since and I swear that the guy still doesn’t like me. Reminiscing about that situation is what makes me feel frustrated, because had I known what I know now, my boss and I would be on great terms because none of that would have ever happened in the first place. Well, lesson learned I guess, I suppose that I’m just grateful to know now that there’s a fast and convenient option available when these situation arise in the future.
