Tammy Murray: "It brings peace of mind."
SBRMC Acting CEO Mike Neuendorf recently received the following letter:
Dear Mr. Neuendorf:
Last week, my children and I travelled to Orange Beach for our annual "Fall Break" trip. Since we come from Oklahoma and only have 3 days to spend at the beach, we try to make every minute count. One of my 9 year old twins started feeling ill on Thursday and was running a fairly high fever by Friday night.
Not knowing any doctors in the area, I cannot tell you how relieved I was to find the Urgent Care Center. We have a facility very similar to yours in our town where we go for all of our minor illnesses. I was so excited to find the clinic because I really did not feel the emergency room was necessary, and where else can you go when you are a visitor, it's Friday night, and you have a sick child?
Dr. McAtee was the doctor working and he was exceptional in treating my son. He did a thorough examination, a strep test and had the prescription called in for me. By Saturday afternoon, my son was better and ready to enjoy our last day at the beach.
I come from Oklahoma to Orange Beach with my 4 children, 2 or 3 times a year, and it is wonderful to know there is a facility where we are now established if an illness occurs. It brings a great peace of mind while vacationing to know the clinic is there.
Thank you for opening the Urgent Care Center.
