There I was, back in New York City for Labor Day Weekend. A trip to Fire Island: drinks by the pool, rainy-cold evenings. After a couple of days at the beach, back to the city: NYFW in full force, barely eating, sleepless nights. The city finally took a toll on me; I was exhausted, my head was throbbing, I needed to see a doctor.

Getting sick while traveling sucks! But for a frequent flyer, that’s a given. – Stale recycled air, different climates, foreign germs, all of this things eventually get the best of you. I don’t have insurance; I didn’t have any other choice than going to an urgent care clinic. CityMD was just down the street; I decided to give them a try.

Registering in the self-check in kiosks is a piece of cake

When I walked in, the first thing I noticed were the modern, sleek installations.- I’ve been to similar clinics; they do not look that nice. I was immediately greeted by the friendly staff.  They explained how to check in using their kiosks -super easy! The best thing, when you register at one location, you’re automatically in the system at all CityMD Urgent Care clinics.

I probably waited for five to ten minutes before I saw the doctor. Much to my surprise, the examination room was clean and well-kept, this made me feel comfortable. In there, the medical scribe took my vitals and asked questions about my health history.

When the doctor came in, she asked a couple more things and inquired about the reason I was there. After telling her my symptoms: stuffy nose, ear discomfort, and headaches. She proceeded to check my nose, ears, and throat. My ears were a bit swollen; she could also see some irritation inside my nose.

She concluded that I had a significant case of allergies, the clogged sinuses were the cause of the headaches and stuffy ears. The doctor conducted herself in a professional yet gentle way. I felt as she genuinely cared about my health. – I hate going to the doctor just to be dismissed after a five-minute chat.

I had a great CityMD Experience, you can tell they strive to care for their patients in every way possible. If you have a minor injury or mild illness, this urgent care clinic is a great option.
