The 411 Urgent Care is not part of TVRH.

Unfortunately. an emergency occurred on a Saturday night a few months back and NONE of the urgent care facilities were open forcing us to go to TVH ER where we waited over 2 hours eventually leaving and seeing personal physician on Monday morning.

So ... Saturday night emergency, left ER. Then, personal physician seen Monday morning. A real "emergency." Apparently ... in the eyes of the patient.

Be prepared to wait for hours at Leesburg.

Posted by Warren Kiefer,

Ocala/Summerfield Emergency is located on 27/441 at the entrance to the Del Web community.. I was experiencing a kidney stone attack, yes, one of those where you consider killing yourself !! Anyway, within 10 minutes I was in a treatment room and an IV was being administered. I recalled my last Villages Emergence Room need where I lay on a gurney in a hallway for 8 hours (kidney stones then too)..The Summerfield Emergency was extremely professional, capable and their facility without complaint, up to date. If I am in the position of making a choice, the Summerfield facility will always be where I want to be treated.

Last year I needed to go to the ER and chose Summerfield ER over TVRH, based on past experience at TVRH. When we arrived at Summerfield I was immediately tested and examined by the ER doctor, who recommended a night in the hospital for observation. The ER staff handled the admittance procedure, so I went directly by ambulance to a pre-assigned room.

The other thing that worked better at Ocala Regional was getting OUT of the hospital. My last time at TVRH I had to wait hours for the specialist and hospitalist to sign the discharge papers. I was by-passed for lunch because I was "scheduled for release any minute". At 7 pm the hospitalist finally signed the paperwork. At Ocala Regional the discharge was done promptly during the day.

In my opinion, part of the problem at TVRH ER with patients waiting for a room is the inability of patients occupying rooms to get discharged.

The only downside of going to Ocala was the recommended followup was with an Ocala doctor rather than my regular doctor in TV.

Did you have a bad experience with Paramount? Is that why you are asking? I have taken my wife last year, and my Mother last night to Paramount, and in both cases, we received very good care, the facility was very nice, and the people were friendly and responsive. I will recommend them over any of the other urgent care facilities we have used here in The Villages.

I thought I'd read somewhere that there's one in Brownwood that's good. Is that in the strip mall where the Butter Bean restaurant used to be?? We may need one today and I want it to be somewhere that the majority of folks recommend. I don't know how to do a search on this site for former conversations re: this.
I just went to the Minute Clinic in CVS on 466 this morning (Sunday). Was able to reserve an appointment time online beforehand. Whole appt/wait time was less than 1/2 hour. They treat minor medical problems and injuries (like your PCP would do if they were open). I was able to pick up my prescription at the pharmacy. My copay was $5 plus a separate charge for a lab test. Personnel were competent, friendly, helpful. I will go back.

There are two near Sumter Landing, just off of Old Camp Road and not far from Sunnys Bar B Que. The one that is marked 411 is the best, we were really impressed with it. Hope that helps. Also it is good to be sure and check it all out and share, some are not so good????????
