Patient FAQ

Our experienced providers are trained in emergency, family, and internal medicine. In fact, you’ll find many are the same experts who have treated patients in local area hospitals.

We are proudly Affiliated with Yale New Haven Health Care System in Connecticut and New York, and with Tufts Medical Center in Massachusetts. We, also, work collaboratively with local providers, including your primary care or specialty doctor, across Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts.
Fees vary, though are significantly lower than a visit to the emergency room and generally the same or slightly higher than a visit to your primary care doctor.

If you have insurance, the total charges will be determined based on your insurance provider’s policy regarding urgent care and the level of care you receive during your visit with us. If you have further questions, please contact your insurance company.

For information on the estimated cost of a self-pay visit, please call your local PhysicianOne Urgent Care center.

If you have a question regarding billing, please contact our billing company.

Yes, we accept most major insurances. Your co-pay is collected and required at the time of service. Please call your nearest PhysicianOne Urgent Care location to inquire if we accept your insurance.
Insurance isn’t required to visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care, and we have reasonable self-pay fees for those without insurance. In fact, you’ll find our fees are competitive with other local healthcare providers. Feel free to call us for estimated cost information. Payment is required at the time of service. Please note: PhysicianOne Urgent Care does not accept personal checks.
Generally speaking, our fees are far more affordable than a visit to the emergency room, though this depends on your co-pay and the level of care you receive during your visit.
We have on-site X-ray capabilities, so we’re able to diagnose fractures and then splint them during your visit. Our X-rays are read by a Board Certified Radiologist. We can also provide you with a copy of your X-rays on a CD for you to bring to your orthopedic physician for a follow-up appointment.
Wait times vary, though the average wait time is significantly less than the average wait time at an emergency room. Patients are typically in and out in less than an hour. You can check-in online to hold your spot in line at your nearest PhysicianOne Urgent Care.

When waiting at any of our centers, your wait time will factor in those ahead of you in the wait queue who may be waiting in the waiting room or at home, as well as patients currently in the exam rooms, and patients currently receiving X-ray or lab services.

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, you will be seen by one of our experienced providers who are trained in either emergency, family, or internal medicine. That provider may be a physician, a PA, or an APRN.
Doctors and PAs carry many of the same responsibilities. PAs can examine, diagnose, and treat patients; they can interpret lab tests, perform procedures, and prescribe medication. PAs are nationally certified by the National Commission on Certification of PAs in conjunction with the National Board of Medical Examiners, and they must log 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years and sit for a recertification exam every ten years. They are also required to obtain state licensure in each state they practice.
Yes; at PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we provide care for patients of all ages.
We offer the Influenza (flu) vaccine, during flu season. Visit our vaccines page, for vaccination information.
We provide convenient care during extended hours and offer patients the flexibility of walking in to receive care at a time that is most convenient for them. Patients also have the option to check-in online to hold a spot in the wait queue. This is not an appointment, though allows patients to “hold their spot” in line and receive a text message when it is their turn to come in and complete the check-in process in person.
While we provide convenient and high-quality urgent medical care when a patient’s PCP is unavailable, we are not a replacement for your primary care provider. We encourage patients to establish a relationship with a primary care provider, and we are happy to provide patients with the name of PCPs in their area.
Not at all! PhysicianOne Urgent Care is the original Urgent Care of Connecticut and has, since 2008, set the standard for high-quality urgent care in the market, as the first UCA Accredited urgent care organization in Connecticut. All 23 PhysicianOne Urgent Care locations, throughout Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts are UCA Accredited, a nationally-recognized symbol for urgent care quality, safety, and scope.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."

Somers, NY
