Lumin ConvenientCARE Opens in Flower Mound
October 21, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsOctober 21, 2014 - Lumin ConvenientCARE™, a new urgent care clinic in Flower Mound, Texas, has officially opened for business. It began seeing patients on Oct. 1 at 2628 Long Prairie Road, Suite 107.
Urgent care centers represent one of the fastest-growing segments of the American health care system, according to Ibis World. This is due in part to rising wait times for both primary and emergency care providers. In addition, Becker's Hospital Review reports that an estimated 13.7 to 27.1 percent of all emergency department visits could take place at an urgent care center. This is great news for many patients, since a visit to an urgent care center is generally less expensive.
"A trip to the ER can cost up to 85 percent more than a visit to a convenient care clinic and wait times are usually much longer at the ER than they are in an urgent care setting. We're proud to be able to offer the Flower Mound community a quicker, less expensive option that comes with the highest level of quality health care in a comfortable, welcoming environment," said Dr. Candice Winful, a family medicine physician at Lumin ConvenientCARE.
Lumin ConvenientCARE employs top-rated, board-certified health care professionals to provide the highest quality care and best patient experience possible. An affiliate of Lumin Health, Lumin ConvenientCARE also has access to a wide referral network of fellowship trained surgeons; spine care, orthopedic, pain management, and women's health experts; and other specialists throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
"Most of the cases we see can be addressed at Lumin ConvenientCARE, but if you need to be referred to a specialist, our family of experts can see you within 24 hours at one of our affiliate clinics. If it's after their normal business hours, like a weekend or a holiday, then our affiliate clinic would schedule you for the next available business day," said Dr. Winful.
