Emergency Room or Tel Aviv Doctor?

Research shows that many E.R. patients could be seen and treated (faster) by a Family Doctor, GP, Primary Care Physician. We always try to keep appointments available on short notice for that reason. Call us or contact us on Whatsapp to speak to a doctor now.

“Some people visit the emergency department to fill repeat prescriptions,” researchers have found – which is not only a waste of the patient’s time, but more importantly these visits extend the wait for patients with more serious conditions. Be sure, if you’re sitting in a well run ER with a condition not considered urgent, your wait will be stretched even more, as they run intelligent triage systems optimising case-management according to medical indications.

Is Tel Aviv Doctor a Walk in Clinic?

We consider it our responsibility to be available on short notice as a Family Doctor, Primary Care Doctor and GP. Although we can usually make time for walk-in patients, we encourage you to please speak to us first. Our clinic is open 6 days a week and we also see patients at home or in their hotel room. The clinic is set up to run lab-tests, arrange for immediate ultrasound, x-rays, CT or MRI. If the medical condition should require a consult with a specialist, we can set up appointments on short notice with a specialist in our network.
