SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Oct. 04, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Convenient for individuals and families in Alamo Ranch and neighboring Helotes, Prestige Emergency Room provides a higher quality of medical care due to its immediate service, personable bedside manner, and flexible billing options. Knowing patients with serious medical concerns desire immediate attention, Prestige Emergency Room founders, Luis Chapa, M.D., Adrian Reyes, M.D. and Edward Wright, M.D., have designed their practice to be more patient-centric than hospital emergency rooms.

Patients with serious medical concerns require a rapid medical response instead of a prolonged wait time, and the founders of Prestige Emergency Room are shifting the paradigm in emergency medicine. Having established a freestanding emergency medical care facility (FEC) in San Antonio, the founders have utilized a business model that focuses on patient-centric care where residents need it most – close to home. "We had a vision of something like this, that we could start and grow out and become a bigger part of San Antonio," said Dr. Chapa. "Lucky for us, this is a dream come true, having developed a second location in a short amount of time."

The second location has enabled the company to double its staff, allowing them to treat more people. The new Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians at this location, Mario Fernandez, M.D., Daniel Wheeler, D.O., and Mark Ogden, D.O., have been responsive to patient needs, and seeing more people with serious injuries and illnesses than previously estimated. The large number of patients served is a testament to the company founders' idea of being in the right place, at the right time for the right reasons.

Prestige Emergency Room specializes in emergency medicine and now with two locations, six Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians and several medical staff members, the team works around the clock fulfilling the 24/7 service hours. Staff renders treatment for individuals, ranging from pediatric to geriatric, for illnesses, fractures and body pain, with the goal of evaluating, diagnosing and treating patients immediately upon their arrival.

The major difference between Prestige Emergency Room and traditional hospital emergency rooms is the patients' wait time and quality of care. Knowing emergencies don't wait, and neither should the patient, providing immediate care to the patient upon their arrival is a critical mission for the medical team. Patients want to know their diagnosis immediately, and having physicians assess the injury or illness right away reduces stress and anxiety for the patients, helping to foster peace of mind. Focused on healing, both facilities are equipped with an on-site laboratory and imaging equipment along with cardiac on-site lab tests, overnight observation, and flexible billing options.
