RX: Avoid Immediate Care Centers

doctor is in
If you need “immediate care,” it’s not always wise to show up at an immediate care center during flu season in Champaign. I dropped by when my doctor was booked solid and my symptoms hit day eight. What did I find? A 3 hour wait at one facility; a 2.5 hour wait at the other. The thought of sitting for hours in an amphitheater of people hacking, sneezing and moaning was dreadful, so I grabbed soup, oranges and cookies (you read that right) and went home to Tuna and Dreamsicle for some TLC. Now, that’s what I call immediate care.
