Eliminating the waiting game for your healthcare

A person who is frustrated

Twenty-four days.  That’s the national average wait time for a new patient to get an appointment with a primary care provider. In rural areas, like ours, that wait time can be significantly longer, even up to six  months or more.

No one likes waiting, even for non-urgent health concerns. With long wait times, many patients get frustrated and seek care at an urgent care center, or maybe even cancel their appointments altogether.  Delaying care can mean that a health condition that could have been treated early can worsen. That’s just one of the reasons why we strive to get our patients the care they need, with same and next day appointments available. This leads to improved patient satisfaction, as well as better outcomes. By scheduling our patients promptly, we’re able to relieve some of the anxiety that’s inevitable when you're waiting for answers – and also get tests ordered, prescribe medications, make referrals that much sooner. 

If you’re tired of dealing with long wait times, rushed visits and physician turnover, give North Star Clinic a call. Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with our patients, which allows for a better understanding of a patient’s health. And that means we can provide more comprehensive care.
