First Med Urgent Care Offers Printable Patient Forms Online

Quicker Visits For New Urgent Care Patients

A few months ago we highlighted how First Med Urgent Care has helped save patients time by offering them the capability to check-in online. Since then, so many of our patients have flooded our feedback inbox with positive notes about this wonderful option (thank you to all of our patients who have told us how much you love the online check-in system). Today, we wanted to let new patients know that they can speed up their urgent care wait times even more by using the printable patient forms available on our website!

At an average doctor’s office you end up waiting for up to one hour just to even be called to back. That’s not counting the time it often takes to get to talk to the doctor. It’s not like that at First Med Urgent Care! Of course, there will be days when the lobby seems packed with new patients trying to get in, but a lot of those people are still filling out their patient paperwork.

Even then we strive to get those patients back as soon as possible, but you can imagine that it helps if you already have that vital paperwork filled out and ready to hand in upon your arrival. First Med is committed to giving you the best possible health care experience so you may click here to access the forms you’ll need to print, fill out, and bring with you to your visit.

If you find yourself feeling ill or have minor injuries and you’d rather skip the long wait times, come see us at any of our 6 convenient First Med Urgent Care locations that are easily found around the OKC and Edmond area. You may check-in online by clicking here. Then, simply show up with your important patient documents, your identification, and insurance cards that you may need to provide. Our urgent care staff will do the rest.

We look forward to treating you!

First Med Urgent Care: Preventing Hip Fractures This Winter

Urgent Care: Safety Tips For Not Falling

Winter time in Oklahoma can be quite brutal, mostly due to the fact that it’s unpredictable. Our urgent care staff likes to prepare as much as possible in the event that icy conditions become a problem during the winter months. Taking precautions is important, because unexpected falling can lead to hip fractures, especially for the elderly. Today, our urgent care staff would like to provide some safety tips to keep you upright so that hip fractures can be avoided this winter.

  • Wear appropriate shoes: Choose a practical shoe with good traction when having to walk on slippery sidewalks, stairs, and slopes.
  • Take a cell phone for help: If you find yourself leaving the house during inclement weather having a cell phone to connect with friends or family is a smart move. In case you do fall down you’ll have the necessary means to call for help.
  • Use that sidewalk salt: It may be silly to only purchase salt for a minimal time, but the salt does work to keep pathways clear so that you can avoid slips.
  • Try exercising indoors: If you’re an avid exerciser remember that winter conditions may make it unsafe for you to stay active outside. That doesn’t mean stop working out! Simply consider moving your routine indoors.
  • Get regular check-ups: Taking care of your body on an ongoing basis is the best way to ensure overall health. Getting check-ups by an urgent care doctor to make sure you’re in great condition may be able to help you prevent injuries.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Maintaining your health and forming strong bones starts with your diet, too. Consider plenty of foods rich in calcium and Vitamin D.

We hope you’ve found this informative!

If you should fall down and find that your hip isn’t fractured, but there are some minor injuries causing you pain, our urgent care would be happy to take a look.
