Dr. Ebun Ebunlomo takes the reins at Preferred Urgent Care in Katy, Texas, provides fast walk-in service as a cost-effective alternative to emergency room
Online PR News – 04-March-2016 – Katy, Texas – When a health care provider is needed urgently, Preferred Urgent Care is Katy’s alternative to the long wait and high cost of an emergency room visit. Located at 1450 Grand Parkway South, Suite M, in Grand Parkway Crossing Shopping Center, Preferred Urgent Care is staffed with licensed medical professionals from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. The clinic recently introduced a new chief executive, Dr. Ebun Ebunlomo.
“Our ‘No Wait Time’ policy means patients will be seen quickly, and our extended hours make Preferred Urgent Care an option when most doctors’ offices are not open,” said Dr. Ebunlomo, who holds a doctorate degree in public health and worked as Senior Health Educator for the City of Houston, developing the nationally recognized employee wellness program there. In addition to running Preferred Urgent Care, Dr. Ebunlomo is currently working on a post-doctoral fellowship with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A medical and support staff of 12, including a Medical Director and three medical providers, allows Preferred Urgent Care to offer walk-in urgent care as well as by-appointment doctor visits every day, including weekends. Workers compensation cases, physical exams for school, sports and employment, and pre-employment drug screening are among the services offered at the clinic. On-site lab services are available and most insurance plans are accepted.
Dr. Ebunlomo’s leadership will take Preferred Urgent Care in a new direction. As a young public health expert with a genuine interest in educating the community, she is dedicated to providing immediate urgent care services at a lower cost compared to emergency rooms. Wellness education also is an important goal of the new chief executive.
“Throughout my career in public health, I have been dedicated to educating the public about the importance of maintaining their health,” Dr. Ebunlomo explained. “While we’re here for our patients when there’s an urgent problem, our true goal is to empower them and increase understanding that a healthy lifestyle can prevent minor health problems from becoming emergencies later on.”
Many people automatically turn to an emergency room when they experience an urgent health problem because they are unaware that there’s another option, she explained.
“When people experience an urgent medical issue that’s not life-threatening, we want them to know they have an alternative to the potential of a long wait and very high cost of an emergency room visit,” said Dr. Ebunlomo. “Our dedicated team of medical professionals are trained to deal with almost every type of non-life-threatening medical crisis, and our ‘No Wait Time’ policy means patients receive care quickly. We specialize in services for the entire family. There’s no age limitations at Preferred Urgent Care.”
No appointment is necessary, but appointments are available by calling Preferred Urgent Care at (281) 916-1444. The clinic’s motto is “Outstanding Care, Delivered Right Away.”
