Altus ER During COVID-19 – Real Patient Testimonies

Visiting Altus ER During COVID-19, What Has it Been Like?

From the beginning, when the COVID-19 virus first appeared, there has been a whirlwind of controversy and many more questions than answers.  The world went through a massive realization that we are all interconnected.  We are not alone as what happens in one part of the world can ultimately affect the whole.  However, it has also been a time of coming together in a tremendous effort to safeguard our families, friends, and the whole of humanity.  Suddenly, unsung heroes began to spring up all over the world, those on the front line, our first-responders and healthcare workers.  Likewise, there have been individuals, organizations, and businesses who also stood up and reached out to help others during these trying times.

 

How can you tell if an ER is a safe, caring, effective place to go these days?

 

Since it’s inception, the Altus Health family has strived together through the years, helping to give our surrounding communities access to quality ER care.  Now more than ever before, standing alongside the community has become crucial.  We take a look back from March 2020 to present-day to find out what it has been like for our patients to visit Altus ER During COVID-19.

What we found was eyeopening.  Healthcare workers focus on helping each patient get well during that crucial moment that they come into the ER.  Very rarely do they get to understand the difference that those critical moments made in someone’s life.

Thank you to each and every patient that has trusted in us as a safe ER to come and get care.  We vow to continue to work 24/7/365 days to keep you safe and well!  Today, we share some of the real testimonials of patients visiting Altus ER during COVID-19.

Real Patient Testimonials

“The moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me immediately and checked me in. I was taken back to a room as soon as the receptionist finished the check-in process. Dr. Rodriguez came into the exam room to assess me within 5 minutes. He devised a plan quickly which started with an X-ray. X-ray was completed and read within 15-20 min. The nurse and tech who took part in my care were both very kind as well. I feel I was properly diagnosed and given the appropriate medications and instructions. I definitely give them FIVE stars.”  –  Cherie Bates

 

“The doctors and staff were very professional and courteous. I recently had surgery at another location and went in to Altus for trouble urinating. Doc did a CT scan and found an abcess. He immediately sent me back into the hospital where my surgery was done. Great catch doc!!!”  –  Tonya Johnson

 

“I was treated very, very well. I had a boil on the back of neck that turned into a raging staph infection that they called Cellulitis. They put me in the corner room, with a very comfortable recliner and started the I/V anti biotics. Within 10 very comfortable hours most of the swelling had gone down and I was feeling much, much better than when I arrived, so they sent me on home. I’d highly recommend them for ANY KIND of urgent Care needs you may have.  i Wednesday scared to Death of being exposed to the Corona, no worries. They keep it very clean.”  –  James Smith

 

“Great service, was seen very quickly and not to pricey if you dont have insurance.. Doctors and nurses actually know what they’re doing, figured out the problem in less then an hour”  –  Jasmine Hodge

Real Patient Testimonials

“The front lady was so kind! This was my first time taking my child and they were great! Sweet and thorough nurse who did a great job explaining the process to my 3-year-old and the doctor was so attentive and sweet. I highly recommend this Emergency center!”  –  Christen Arroyave

 

“This is a great place to go for an emergency. This a stand-alone ER. The nurses, doctors, X-ray Tech and receptionist are all very polite and business like. I was diagnosed with bronchitis. Without any hesitation, I was asked pertinent questions to exclude Covid-19. I was given a chest X-ray to complete verification. I did not need a Covid test. I appreciate all the professionalism that I witnessed. I recommend Altus in Waxahachie. Please note that a bad cough and heavy chest does not always mean Covid-19. A.S.”  –  Anne Sutherland

We Stand with Our Community

We Stand with Our Community

These past few months as a community, we’ve faced some hard times with the spread of COVID-19. The pandemic affected us all in one way or another; our children can’t attend school; many workplaces closed down, and we had to learn about social distancing.

Through this entire ordeal, Altus Emergency Centers has remained open, taking care of our friends and neighbors, and we plan to continue doing so.

That is why we wanted to share with you how we are helping our communities cope with the public health crisis and stay safe and healthy.

Can You Get Tested for COVID-19 At Altus Emergency Centers?

The first thing we wanted to address is our testing capabilities. As of right now, the Department Of State And Health Services (DSHS) does not allow freestanding ERs, such as Altus Emergency Centers, to do outpatient testing.

Therefore, if you come to us with symptoms related to COVID-19, we can examine you as an ER visit and take a sample and send it to an authorized laboratory for testing if the physician deems necessary.

How Altus Emergency Centers Is Helping to Care for the Community

In these uncertain times, we understand how scary it is to deal with a medical emergency, especially if you have symptoms associated with COVID-19.

We want you to know Altus Emergency Centers is here for you, and we will not leave you alone in your time of need.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Free Medical Screenings

All patients who visit our emergency centers receive a free medical screening by one of our physicians. After the evaluation and based on symptoms, the physician will make a medical decision to order or not order a COVID-19 test.

As a patient, you have the right to agree or disagree to be seen by a physician. If you agree, your visit is considered an emergency room visit.  For those with commercial insurance, the CARE Act ensures no out of pocket expenses related to the diagnostic test.  Altus Emergency Centers are required to follow these federal rules.

Partnerships for Non-Emergency Needs

It’s not always easy for us as patients to determine if our symptoms or injury requires emergency attention or not, especially when we are scared.

You don’t have to worry; you can come to any one of our centers and let our medical staff evaluate your situation.

At Altus Emergency Centers, we don’t just take care of your health; we also take care of your wallet. We have partnered with local urgent care and other community facilities to provide more cost-effective options for those interested with a non-emergency need.

Additionally, we also can refer patients without symptoms to our county resources.

We are living in difficult, stressful, and scary times. However, Altus Emergency Centers is proud to be a member of the community. The outpouring of support from the local authorities and neighbors who are organizing to look after each other inspires us every day.

 

Altus Emergency Centers stands with our communities. We are confident we will get through this by working together and taking care of one another. Stay safe and healthy.

Visit Lake Jackson Texas the City of Enchantment

It’s no coincidence that Lake Jackson’s nickname is “The City of Enchantment”.  A combination of scenic beauty and unique city planning results in its distinctive personality that many have grown to love.  Whether you live here or are thinking of passing by, this article is dedicated to our beloved Brazoria County town of Lake Jackson Texas, a remarkable place home to a fun-loving and tight-knit community.

Visit-Lake-Jackson-Texas-City-of-Enchantment
Visit-Lake-Jackson-Texas-City-of-Enchantment

Unlike most towns, Lake Jackson Texas was conceived and planned before a single stone was laid.  As a matter of fact, Oak Drive where Altus Emergency Center Lake Jackson is located was the very first street constructed.  Architect Alden B. Dow, the man responsible for the town’s design, is considered a visionary.  Mr. Dow gave clear instructions to the workers to spare as many trees as possible during the construction, thus preserving the natural history and ecosystems of the area while at the same time creating an enchanting city. As a result, thanks to him, Lake Jackson could be regarded as one of the first environmentally conscious cities in the country.

Visit Lake Jackson Texas is brought to you by Altus Emergency Center Lake Jackson, We’re Not Neighbors, We’re Family!

Originally built as a town to house the employees of the Dow Chemical Company back in 1941, today Lake Jackson is home to more than 26,000 people.  This growing community has become an important economic center in the area.

The City of Enchantment has many attractions that provide healthy entertainment to its residents and visitors alike, among them we find:

Sea Center Texas

When you visit Lake Jackson Texas, we encourage you to take a trip to the Sea Center Texas.  This hidden gem is the largest redfish hatchery in the world, it produces some 20 million fingerlings of red drum and spotted trout a year which is then released into the Texas coastal waters. In addition to the aquariums, they have a 24-foot touch display, saltwater marsh displays as well as a freshwater marsh full of wildlife.

Lake Jackson Historical Museum

The Lake Jackson Historical Museum is about a half day treat for you and your family to enjoy during your visit to Lake Jackson Texas.

The most entertaining way to learn about the fantastic history of Lake Jackson, the museum chronicles the history of the area with interactive exhibits and high-tech displays focusing on 4 eras, pre-historic era, the plantation era, the development of its petrochemical industry and finally the construction of modern-day Lake Jackson.

Life-like animatrons of Alden Dow will explain why Lake Jackson’s streets are named “This Way” and “That Way. Visitors can also fly the Windecker Eagle airplane themselves and learn about life during the plantation era from Major Abner Jackson himself.

There are several other exhibits worth enjoying such as the section on the native Karankawa Indians who resided in Lake Jackson area as well as the Texas coastline in the 1600’s.  Last but not least, many people have heard of the Tejano singer, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, but did you know that she grew up in Lake Jackson Texas?  There is a recent exhibit dedicated to this beloved Tejano Pop music singer in the Lake Jackson Historical Museum.

Mammoth Lake Dive Park

Where else can you enjoy an aquatic adventure and spot mammoth remains?  Drop by the Mammoth Lake Dive Park, the former archaeological dig site near Lake Jackson Texas and explore interesting wrecks during your visit. Have a close encounter with the remains of huge Mammoth unearthed in the area while you earn your scuba diver’s certification, the lake has a lot of cool things to explore and the restaurant where the mammoth bones are displayed is fantastic.

A Tight-Knit Community

Lake Jackson Texas is indeed beautiful and full of adventures, but it is also home to a tight-knit community that is concerned with real issues affecting our society, after so many years operating in Lake Jackson, Altus Emergency Center is proud to be another concerned member of the community, and it is because of this that we have forged valuable alliances with both local government agencies like the Lake Jackson Police Association, the Lake Jackson Fire Department, Brazoria Chamber of Commerce, and the Brazoria Independent School District as well as amazing non-profit organizations such as:

Women’s Center of Brazoria County: An organization that provides help to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Habitat for Humanity: The Habitat for Humanity chapter in Southern Brazoria revitalizes neighborhoods, and builds affordable and sustainable housing, while at the same empowers families through successful homeownership programs.

SPCA: Animals deserve second chances too, SPCA of Brazoria County works tirelessly to find good homes for stray and homeless animals in the community.

The staff of Altus Emergency Center Lake Jackson encourages all Lake Jackson residents and its visitors to explore the beauty of the City of Enchantment and become involved with one or more of the different programs that strive to make our community even better than it already is.
