HOUSTON (February 04, 2017)

Memorial Hermann is taking on-demand health care one step farther, now offering online check-in at all six of its Memorial Hermann Urgent Care clinics.

For non-life-threatening conditions, the clinics currently offer walk-in care from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., seven days a week. By using online check-in, patients can see the current number of individuals in line ahead of them and be able to select a specific time to be seen.

“We know patients’ time is valuable. Online check-in allows them to wait in the comfort of their home, at work, or wherever is most convenient for them,” says Niral Patel, MD, Regional Director for Medical Operations Urgent Care. “We can also notify patients if there are any changes or delays in the schedule, before they head our way, saving them precious waiting time. Our goal is to make visits as smooth as possible.”

All clinics are staffed by board-certified physicians and offer X-ray and lab services on-site. If your primary care physician is a member of Memorial Hermann Medical Group (MHMG), records of your clinic visits will be placed in your Memorial Hermann electronic health record. This will allow your MHMG primary care provider to easily review your records during any follow-up appointments.
