Founded in 2008 by three successful ER physicians from North Texas, the group wanted to provide a better choice to patients who were being charged for ER visits with non-emergency diagnoses. Legacy ER & Urgent Care was created from that desire and every decision being made was to deliver the best care, best billing options, and most of all to be a facility that focused on patient care. Now Legacy ER & Urgent Care is the new standard of quality, community emergency and urgent care with the highest patient satisfaction scores in the industry.
A vast majority of emergency room visit across the country can be classified as urgent care, where lower co-pays and bills apply. Legacy ER & Urgent Care strives for complete transparency and will let you know when the services provided warrant emergency room billing. Why is this important, besides being ethically responsible? Most walk-in ERs and hospital emergency rooms only bill one way; every visit is an emergency visit. Translation: sore throats can be very expensive if you don't choose your provider wisely.
Urgent care-only facilities typically treat minor symptoms and are not equipped to deal with potential serious injuries, chest pain, abdominal pain, severe nausea/vomiting, or specialized care. Most importantly, urgent care-only facilities are not required to have doctors present. A physician assistant or nurse practitioner often serves as the medical provider. At Legacy ER & Urgent Care, you’ll find board-certified, emergency-trained doctors who can expertly handle a wide variety of medical concerns, both major and minor.
Appointments are not necessary, and online check-in means you can even bypass paperwork when you get here. Most patients wait less than 5 minutes to see the doctor and are typically heading home in under 45 minutes.
