At South Alamo Medical Group we offer after hours at our adult and pediatric clinics. Our after-hours clinics have extended hours so you and your family will be able to get the attention you need exactly when you need it. There are some huge benefits to offering this service to the community. Patients that work 8am-5pm no longer have to miss work to get routine healthcare. Pap smears, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, can all be managed at our after hour clinic without missing work. Also, for our elderly patients who sometimes need assistance with their visits won't have to worry about their family member missing out on work either. Even emergency rooms can sometimes be overly packed, and people can wait for long periods of time if there illness or injuries or not life-threatening. Typically there is a lot less of a wait time if you visit after hour's clinic which in turn means faster responses to your medical care.
Utilizing after hours can also be cost saving. If you go to the ER for a non-life threating medical problem you could end up with a hefty payment compared to going to your doctor's after hours could only cost you your regular co-payment. If you like more information about our after-hours clinics call us at 210-222-0333
Please remember that if you believe you or someone is having a life threating emergency please call 911 or got to your nearest emergency room to receive the proper care.
