OutClique: Tell us about Pronto Care.
Pronto: Pronto Urgent Care was created on the belief that urgent care can offer service that’s high quality, fast and friendly, and even affordable. We all live a fast paced and demanding lifestyle. Patients can’t always wait to get an appointment with their primary care physician (PCP). Patients often have to wait in long lines in the emergency rooms and then paying expensive bills. At Pronto Urgent Care you will be seen within minutes.
OCQ: What sets Pronto Care apart from other urgent care services?
Pronto: We have very affordable self pay rates and plans, including our Pronto Preferred Plan. We offer corporate accounts for their employees who have high deductibles or no insurance. We are privately owned, so you generally see the same physician each time for better continuity of care. Our wait times are usually minimal.
OCQ: Tell our readers about Dr. Game.
Pronto: Dr. Game is board certified in Urgent Care Medicine with many years of experience. She has worked in corporate urgent cares before, but always dreamed of opening her own practice. She also performed her training in surgery, surgical critical care, and trauma at Jackson Memorial Hospital. She has the experience to manage challenging cases with success which separates her from urgent care doctors. She is compassionate with her patients and treats all with priority as family members while evaluating each patient individually.
OCQ: What kind of services do you provide?
Pronto: Generic formulary medications are filled on site. We do laboratory services and the results are faster than in your PCP office. We offer workers comp, occupational medicine, and PIP evaluations. Another area of Dr. Game’s expertise is in preoperative examination (medical clearances). Many surgeries require these and we can provide them on site. Before your next trip abroad make sure you are properly vaccinated. Pronto Urgent Care can take care of your travel medicine needs as well.
OCQ: Other than urgent care treatment, what areas of men’s health do you provide care for?
Pronto: We offer yearly physicals, STD checks, labs, high blood pressure, and diabetes screenings. Also, for patients without insurance Dr. Game can be your PCP.
