I wrote a very good review of Trinity Urgent Care, TUC, but after what happened to me next, I must revise it and let you know what my doctors and nurses cautioned me about. The provider at TUC correctly told me to see my personal doctor and a cardiology doctor as soon as possible. TUC had told me that my tests showed 3 things that I had never had before:
1. Pulmonary edema, or fluid in my lungs,
2. A problem with the electrical conduction in my heart, and
3. A leaking valve.
I was shocked. I saw a cardiologist 2 days later who gave me Nitroglycerin if I had chest pain and who told me to go to the ER if that didn't help the pain. Sure enough, two days later I got severe chest pain and ended up in an ambulance to the ED.
I had all the tests done that the cardiologist wanted, plus more. Thankfully, my heart is fine, and no fluid was found in my lungs.
Anyone with chest pain must go to the ER, so I'm not sorry I did. Don't think nothing might be wrong-just go.
But I believe that having already being under severe stress because we are moving across the country, the serious problems TUC said showed up made me even more stressed out.
My doctors and others reminded me that in most cases the Urgent Care provider never met you before, doesn't know you, and does not have your medical records. Also their equipment may not be as good as a hospital's, nor do they have specialists there to read your results.
So of you're told you have a serious thing you never knew before with your heart and lungs, please see your own doctors as soon as possible.
Urgent Care is for simple problems like sore throats, flu, broken bones. Anything that is complex should be followed by doctors who know you or have your past records.
FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE OR VISIT STOCKTON, CALIFORNIAAND NEED URGENT CARE.
I just had the most excellent, friendly, professional, and thorough care at Trinity Parkway Urgent Care Center in north Stockton CA. I thought about writing a review on Yelp until I saw how many business owners were very unhappy with Yelp. So I'm putting this on Sitejabber, which I know is an honest site.
Trinity Urgent Care is located near the Trinity Parkway Shopping Center. I believe its' hours are until 8:30 pm. The website gives the hours of operation and an overview of the busiest times each day.
I had two very complicated issues. I was VERY VERY IMPRESSED with my provider,a NP (Nurse Practitioner), Mary. Also with Don, who first interviewed me and did my X-rays. Everyone who helped me were great. But Mary was unbelievably knowledgeable, and she was so meticulous in my tests, my diagnosis, my treatment plan, and follow-up care!! I've been an RN, BSN for over 30 years, and it takes a lot to impress me. Mary did!
Trinity Urgent Care has digital radiology, probably has a link up for blood work, EKG and other testings in the clinic.
Before you leave, a health care person comes to give you printed information of your treatment plan and your follow up care. You can ask any questions then. Upon leaving, I got printed records of diagnosis and treatment, information sheets about each treatment, and a CD of all the X-rays they did! This helps you when you see your primary MD.
My problems were pretty serious, and I was told to follow up as soon as possible with my personal doctor and a cardiologist. Mary was wonderful in all ways. She really knows what she is doing!
I highly recommend TRINITY URGENT CARE FOR THOSE IN OR AROUND STOCKTON, CA.
