Why Choose an ER Over an Urgent Care

Have you been injured or become ill? Wondering if you should visit an urgent care clinic or a freestanding emergency room? At Angleton ER, we provide hospital emergency room level care without large crowds or extensive wait times. Today, we’re going to discuss whether you should visit an urgent care clinic or a freestand emergency room for your medical needs.

Our Freestanding Emergency Room Is Always Ready

Did you know that an urgent care clinic is basically just to replace a normal doctor? At Angleton ER, our freestanding emergency room provides a range of medical care, including medical attention for injuries, illnesses and other traumatic events. Just a few of the conditions we can treat include:

  • Blood Clots
  • Heart Attack

  • STDs
  • Foreign Body Removal
  • Head Injuries
  • Cuts & Lacerations

Our Freestanding Emergency Room Has No Wait Times

Did you know that urgent care clinics can have extended wait times? We’ve heard of wait times anywhere from one hour to four hours depending upon the location. At Angleton ER you can actually check-in online before you ever arrive! We often have little or no wait times at all.

Our Freestanding Emergency Room Processes Your Visit As “In Network Benefits”

Were you aware that per Texas House Bill 3276, your health insurance company is required to process your ER visit to Angleton ER as “in network benefits”? This means that your insurance will cover the visit just like they would a hospital ER.
