We’re happy to announce the launch of an exciting new Dallas-based medical practice called Mend.
Mend delivers affordable, on-demand urgent medical care to your Dallas home, office or hotel, for patients age 2-64. It’s a modern day house call with an Uber-like twist, marrying convenience and technology in a highly personalized package. Request a visit on their free iPhone app or through their website and they’ll dispatch a healthcare provider to your location at your chosen time. They’ll diagnose and begin treatment right where you are, and Dougherty’s Pharmacy can deliver your prescriptions afterwards. You never have to leave your couch! With this service, you’ll save time and avoid waiting rooms, germ-filled offices, and outrageous bills. Surprisingly, the cost is similar to an “urgent care” visit and house calls are just $199.
Mend specializes in common illnesses and injuries that require prompt evaluation, but aren’t serious enough to require a visit to an emergency room. Their mobile clinic is highly equipped and they can test for flu, strep, urinary tract infections and pregnancy. They can perform procedures like stitches and splinting and can even give you your first dose of many medications. Some conditions they treat are:
- Bronchitis and pneumonia
- Sinus infections
- Strep throat
- Ear and eye infections
- Stomach viruses
- Urinary tract infections
- Fever, chills, and body aches
- Asthma flares
- Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
- Rashes, sores and skin infections
- Boils and abscesses
- Bites and stings
- Sprains and strains
- Minor broken bones
- Cuts needing stitches, staples of skin glue
- Minor burns
- Scrapes, splinters and bruises
Mend employs board certified emergency physicians and experienced emergency room physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Look for their van around town and check out their website at www.mendathome.com.
