    With all of the Doctors Offices that I have been to over the years, it surprises me to say that the most helpful facility I have ever worked with is an urgent care facility! And that is the Rocky Mountain Urgent Care center at 92nd and Harlan in Westminster, CO. I had an “urgent” need for a COVID-19 test and needed results quickly. With the mounting delays at laboratories due to demand, it seemed an impossible task. The staff at Rocky Mountain urgent Care somehow fit my needs in among the other testing and urgent care that are challenging the health care system. They were kind, listened, made commitments and kept them. Though I wasn’t a medical patient, I can only image the quality of care I would have received if I were! In particular, Emily H went above and beyond to help me. I unreservedly recommend Rocky Mountain Urgent Care!

    I sought out Lutheran Spine because at the time the pain clinic I was going to was not providing what I needed. From my first visit I felt that Dr. Ksiazek was a better fit. She took the time to listen to my concerns and was willing to explore more options then just medication and injections. I have been going to see Dr. Ksiazek and the team at Lutheran for about 8 months now. I still feel she take the time to here my concerns and continue to explore options to improve my quality of life. Beyond Dr. Ksiazek the entire team has been great. I have done a lot of PT and Susan Gates has been one of the best therapists I ever had. She also takes the time to here my concerns and listens to me when I say something is not working. I have also been seeing Dr. Milkavick for about 3 months. She has been very helpful in many areas of my life in that time. She is intelligent and able to keep up with my fast paced communication style. The fact that Lutheran has a Pain Psychologist under the same roof speaks for itself. I do not want to forget reception. Most doctors offices I have visited I feel like I am putting reception out by even walking in the door, no eye contact, long waits and having to call multiple times just to set an appointment are the norm in my experience. not at Lutheran Spine, I am always greeted within a few minutes of walking in regardless of how busy they are at the moment. When I call in they answer the phone more often than not and when I do leave a message they always return my call

Urgent Care FAQs

  • What is urgent care?

    Urgent care are available to assist patients that are looking for immediate, convenient medical care. In that manner, they are similar to an emergency room. The difference, however, is that ERs are meant to treat major, life-threatening injuries and illnesses while urgent care centers manage life’s minor bruises and bumps. In simple terms, an urgent care is seen as a walk-in health center that focuses in offering non-emergent health care conditions, including the treatment of the typical illnesses and injuries such as fractures and sprains, cuts and burns, scrapes, stings and bites, flu and cold symptoms, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, and much more. Most urgent care facilities offer both diagnostic and preventive care such as well visits, immunizations, STD testing and annual physicals. For regular visits and check-ups on these clinics, you should expect to pay between $20 and $100. The good thing is that most urgent care clinics will accept major PPOs and insurance cover, Medicare, as well as self-pay in the form of credit cards or cash. Urgent care clinics are located in most parts of the country in various regions to offset emergency room visits and provide a gap in healthcare services. They take patients during all hours of operations, which offer a significant convenience to most people who have and continue to undergo the need for sudden and immediate medical attention.

  • When should I go to the urgent care vs emergency room (ER)?

    Urgent care facilities are seen as a combination between an emergency room (ER) and a PCP (Primary Care Physicians), serving the instant and after hours requirements of neighboring patients. Most urgent care clinics even say that they can diagnose and treat up to seventy-five percent of the patients who visit an emergency room. The primary difference between an ER and Urgent care is the experience of the patient. The average waiting time in an ER is almost 2.5 hours while waiting time in urgent care is between 15 and 45 minutes. The cost of urgent care is usually a fraction of what you would pay in an emergency room. It is advisable to visit an emergency room in situations of medical emergency because urgent care clinics are meant for minor and non-emergent illnesses and injuries.

  • What's the difference between an urgent care and walk-in clinic?

    You will often see the terms urgent care clinic, retail clinic, immediate care clinic, walk-in clinic, and convenient clinic being interchangeably used nowadays. The emergence of emergency rooms complicated the conversation. A walk-in clinic is a type of clinic in which patients can walk-in with no advance appointment. An urgent care clinic, on the other hand, denotes a subgroup of the walk-in clinic model that typically provides extended hours, extended services and abilities as well as on-site lab tests and x-rays.

  • Is insurance accepted at urgent care centers?

    All insurance providers indicate whether their plan covers urgent care facilities or not. Individual clinics and providers may or may not possess a relationship with a particular plan. This aspect makes the scenario complicated. In most situations, insurance providers will cover the urgent care centers, and patients will be needed to pay a co-payment every time they visit the facility. In other rare occasions, it is common for the urgent care facilities to reject some insurance plans even if the provider has indicated that they will pay for the costs incurred. With these uncertainties, it is always advisable to call urgent care centers in advance to determine whether they accept specific insurance plans or not.
