As moms, we are constantly focused on caring for our children, seldom leaving time to think about ourselves. I face this on a daily basis, so there is plenty of time spent juggling family and work responsibilities, trying not to drop the ball. Here’s a perfect example. Before school ended, all three kids wound up getting strep throat! In fact, right after Siella and Gemma finished their first round of antibiotics, we were back at the doctor’s office only to discover they were sick with it again. As I was sitting in the waiting room, I felt my throat was getting swollen, but brushed it off as sympathy pains for my little ones. The pediatrician offered to swab my throat, but I refused, chalking it up to allergies. But low and behold, the day after the doctor’s visit, I woke up and could barely talk. I knew I indeed had strep too! With back to back class trips for Ryder and Siella that week, I couldn’t be out of commission! I jetted out of the house at 7am, and headed straight to CityMD. Lucky for me, they are located a few blocks from our apartment. I figured I could get treated, and be back in time to take the kids to school!
CityMD is a leading urgent care provider dedicated to delivering state-of-the-art medical care with a personalized, patient-centric approach. They accept most health care insurances, so I knew I wouldn’t be faced with a huge bill. My wait was under five minutes before I was called into an exam room. The nurse took my vitals, and the doctor asked my symptoms, and took a swab. That was it, I was certain I had strep.
Since it was early in the morning, I knew I couldn’t get the prescription filled prior to getting the kids out and starting my busy day, so CityMD Urgent Care administered my first dose at the office along with a pain reliever for the swelling. I still felt under the weather for the remainder of the day, but I was thankful to have taken care of it early in the day, so I could get on the mend!
