Why a Mobile Health Clinic?

Why a Mobile Health Clinic?

 Some typical thoughts you might have regarding a traditional doctor’s visit:

  • "It’s been a while...I really need to schedule that doctor’s appointment."
  • “I can’t even remember the last time I visited the doctor.”
  • "Ugh, I have to wait months before I can see him."
  • "I need to take time off from work for the visit…hope I don’t miss an important meeting”
  • “Or I could try to get a Saturday appointment, but my kid has soccer on the weekends. Wait, are they even open on Saturdays?”
  • “I better bring a book while I wait an hour at the doctor's office."
  • “I should leave really early because there’s always traffic getting there.”

We’d be surprised if you’ve never thought at least one of these. But have you ever thought, “Isn’t there an easier way to do this? Why does this have to be such a hassle?” Well the good news is: yes, there is an easier way to do this.

We’ve all got busy lives. Much of our time is spent at work, with many of us still spending time at home working. And then there’s the commute and things like grocery shopping, laundry, making dinner, socializing, exercising, spending time with our family, catching up on TV shows...it’s a constant juggling act. Add in anything extra and it could all get thrown off kilter.

So the thought of squeezing a doctor’s appointment into your already jammed schedule can feel a little daunting. Because of this, too many people put their routine, preventative health examinations on the bottom of their priority list. We keep pushing it off and pushing it off, thinking one day we’ll have more time. This is common, but still very risky behavior. 

Mobile health clinics are a modern trend that aim to address this problem of finding time for something that should be high priority but often isn’t: your health. Mobile healthcare removes the travel barrier and significantly cuts back on the time you need to allocate. If you have time to go grab lunch, you have time to see the doc in a mobile health clinic.

In the case of 2020 On-site Optometry, you can make an appointment online in advance based on the availability in your schedule. No need to miss a meeting or a phone call. We’ll send you reminders so that you don’t forget! You can also fill out your medical forms beforehand so save you some time when you come. At the time of your appointment, simply walk outside of your office and come on board our Mobile Vision Center. We’ll check you in and start your workup right away. Our exams are thorough but efficient, and you can be back at your desk without missing a beat!
